    But you're right: are they persuading people?  We get mailers from Onorato, Williams and Hoeffel.

      What's really infuriating is some political organization that keeps calling from Private Name/Private Number (which is how my husband's cell appears on caller ID so I have to answer it), who will ONLY speak to my husband.  They call several times a day and refuse to talk to me; they say they're a political group and want to thank him for his support.  

      I keep saying "Ok, but I write the checks and advise him who to vote for so you can talk to me" to no avail.  (He's aware and interested, but is on his feet away from a computer 12-14 hours a day at work so relies on me to do the research for him).  It ticks me off.

        for General Elections, caller ID will either say Unknown or have a State listed and the phone number. Like during the 2008 election, we got a lot of out of state calls of people who were making calls from OFA.  I would quickly tell them I was also making calls for OFA so we need to hang up so not to waste our time..we would laugh and cheer as we hung up.

        But this damn primary with the Private Name and Number means the person has blocked their information for Caller ID. So I am now refusing ot answer these calls.
