We would simply note that we have seen ZERO polling on the Omaha Mayor’s race.
Some have suggested that it’s good for…
Suttle, because all the Dems will vote for Suttle;
Ashford because all of South O voted against Suttle in the recall and will vote for Ashford;
Stothert because all the Republicans are attacking Stothert;
Ashford because some Republicans have begun attacking Ashford;
Welch because Stohert was attacking Welch attacking Stothert;
Nabity because Stothert was attacking Nabity attacking Stothert.
A few interesting tidbits:
We are big believers (and find most managers and consultants to be big believers) in the door to door campaigns.
They are very effective in the smaller city-council campaigns where a candidate can have a one-on-one with a voter.
Were candidates able to do that in this race?
Well, we and the OWH and the Election Commissioner note that voter turnout today is expected to be dismal.
So… that would indicate that those citizens who DO get out and vote have been touched (literally) by a candidate or two.
So which candidates have been most effective at this?
We will let you judge.
A couple vids for your viewing pleasure.
First this minute and a half one (so you’ll never see this version on TV) from Brad Ashford:
We note this just because looking at this, you would guess that Omaha ends around 52nd Street or so, yeah?
Think Brad’s making a push for South O?
And then there’s….this.
From Dave Nabity.
We…just…well, take a listen:
We don’t want to judge. And of course D-Nabs is a drummer in a band.
Makes us long for the days of the Karnes Caravan.
