Bush endorses McBride
Bill McBride, the Democratic nominee for governor, has bagged the biggest endorsement of his campaign: Republican Gov. Jeb Bush.Jeb's people are countering with a newspaper article in which McBride praised Bush -- doesn't have quite the impact as the Jeb's videotaped praise. Best of all, this first commercial only has a few seconds of the 5-minute videotape. McBride's people plan on cutting it up into multiple commercials.
"It's a brilliant piece of strategy," says Wayne Bailey, a longtime political scientist at Stetson University and Democratic state committeeman.Given that the electorate has already seen the "devious" side of Jeb, this ad could very well reinforce the voters' worst fears about Jeb's sincerity.
Update: Here's a link to the Real Video version of the ad.Posted October 25, 2002 08:03 AM | Comments (10)
