The ad is entitled “Talk” and touts her experience in contrast to the “talk” of other campaign ads.

And nothing says “I’m a work horse, not a show horse” like a perpetual candidate who’s literally never finished any job she was elected to do. March 31, 2017 3:57 PM Log in to Reply gcp It’s a decent, simple ad and she does have experience balancing a budget. Knowledge and experience can be gained in many ways but you don’t necessarily need to hold elected office to gain such experience and knowledge. In contrast, the dems offer a candidate that has little or no experience in anything.

March 31, 2017 4:39 PM Log in to Reply gcp Not unusual for a congressional staffer to have a clearance. Notice Ossaff never mentions the congressman that he was a part time staffer for was Hank Johnson but maybe Hank will do a commercial for him. The Handel ad is effective because it is so low/key compared to other ads. March 31, 2017 5:05 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Six whole months?

How’s that laptop tasting, Indy? You need some ketchup? April 1, 2017 7:53 AM ScottNAtlanta Notice she didnt mention her time at Susan G Komen…wonder why? Because she sure “got things done” there…not particularly positive things, but things March 31, 2017 4:37 PM Log in to Reply Tony Scalzitti Tube televisions in the back of a 20+ year old truck for a district with a median age of under 38. Maybe I have been away from the day to day of marketing for too long… March 31, 2017 5:13 PM Log in to Reply The Eiger Oh bless your heart Tony. See, that’s the problem with all you old chaps. You assume everyone under 40 is stupid. Yes, I would say you have been away for too long. Do you know what the average age of the person voting in this election will be???? Over 50. So I think taking campaign and marketing advice from a guy who doesn’t even say what he is running for on his cookie cutter website he bought for $50 is probably a bad idea. But good luck to you.

March 31, 2017 5:44 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus I like the website Tony, except for one thing; there needs to be a bio of you. March 31, 2017 7:27 PM Log in to Reply Tony Scalzitti Thank you Benevolus, it’s actually not finished yet. I will check that bio part, I know it was created March 31, 2017 7:59 PM Log in to Reply dunwoodymoderate The Handel strategy appears to be “I’m Karen Handel and mine is the only name you will recognize when you look at the ballot” therefore I do not have to actually campaign. She’s been non-existent in the southern part of the district. I give Gray a lot of credit, he has done meet and greets with our homeowners association and a lot of the neighboring ones here in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody panhandle to up his name recognition up in a part of the district he was largely unknown in. Saw my first Judson Hill sign yesterday on Mt. Vernon, I had honestly forgot he was running. Again, I know his base is East Cobb but no one is going to win by running up the score in their little part of the kingdom. Kurt Wilson was smart in including his “term limits” slogan on his signs as a way to easily convey a message in a crowded field. His was very much less smart in not having his last name on said signs in a crowded field. He seems to be trying to rectify that, saw a couple larger signs yesterday that had his full name on them. Oh and at least in the panhandle, Ossoff signs everywhere. April 1, 2017 10:45 AM Log in to Reply chamblee54 “enough of the empty promises and gimmicks” Karen Handel said that. You can’t make this up. April 1, 2017 2:22 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
