As we gear into Election Day, here are a few final spots from the GOP CD-2 candidates, Congressman Lee Terry and Matt Sakalosky (a/k/a Sakalowsky, KPTM…):
First a mailer, that went out to 30,000 Republican households, from LT.
Note that the Terry campaign has not done any radio or TV against their severely underfunded opponent. Instead they’ve concentrated on direct mail, a robo-call from Governor Dave, volunteer calls, lit drops, and a recent teleconference town hall meeting by Terry. If a Republican planned on voting, there’s a good chance they were contacted by Lee’s camp.
But just to give you something to look at, here’s a piece on YouTube from Terry’s campaign site:
Next there’s the MattSak camp. According to the FEC site, Sakalosky only raised $26,000 ($10K of that, from his own pocket) — this despite being in the race for at least the past twelve months.
Ah well. That won’t shake the Sak camp when they have a couple of sugar-mommas coming through, apparently.
Joe Jordan noted on his blog that Patricia Heskett, who has been very active with the 912 wing of the Tea Partiers, dropped $10K on her Sunday OWH, page 5, pro MattSak / anti Lee Terry full-pager. See it below:
We then later got word from Shelli Dawdy of Grassroots in Nebraska — a Lincoln, Nebraska wing of the Tea Partiers — that she was asked by another group to whip together a radio spot for MattSak to be played on KFAB during the Voorhees, Limbaugh, Beck and Becka.
See the YouTubed version of it here:
The actual radio spot states at the end that it was “Paid for by Grassroots Patriots”, but it’s not clear where that group is from. We find a Kentucky version of them on the web, but nothing particularly from Nebraska or the Omaha area.
And we haven’t found any Federal Election Commission filings from either Heskett or Grassroot Patriots at the FEC’s site, since each would be required to file a report within 24 hours of their independent expenditures. But whatever, right?
So if we hear anything worthwhile throughout the day, we will do our best to give updates.
