Recommendations for Challengers Running for Office
I recommend that all challengers gather their long "lists" of volunteers and financial supporters . . . and that they hold as many "Town Halls" as possible, whether they have ten participants or a thousand. They need to talk soon to every person who has regular contacts with others . . . including barbers, hair dressers, insurance salespeople, cops, principals, ministers, and others. They also need to do something most people hate: ask everybody for money, including very small donations. They should rely more on radio than on TV -- drive-time and talk radio. Radio is inexpensive, TV isn't.
A candidate to keep an eye on: Les Phillip in Alabama's 5th congressional district (Huntsville area). Les is a Black conservative running against Parker Griffith, who recently switched to the Republican caucus. He could use your help.
