Conservative Group: Election Boycott Against Schmidt
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 05:55 PM by Halliburton
Guess Schmidt might lose some loyal voters after these ads by COAST telling all Republicans to stay home on August 2nd.

The Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes announced today that it is launching a radio campaign urging Republicans, conservatives and advocates of limited government to stay at home on Tuesday and cautioning voters not to vote for Republican Jean Schmidt. COAST charged that Schmidt has been posing in the campaign as an advocate of limited government and lower taxes, when the truth is the exact opposite. The script for the radio spot is attached.

"During her tenure in the Ohio legislature, Jean Schmidt voted in favor of every single one of Bob Taft's tax increases, and for good measure, proposed more of her own," said COAST Chairman Jim Urling. "In her recent literature she says that she supports 'limited government and lower taxes.' Indeed, her voting record decidedly shows her beliefs are in bigger government and in higher taxes. She simply is a big-government advocate. Any statement by her to the contrary is a lie."

"COAST encourages its members and all those believing in limited government and lower taxes to stay home on Tuesday, election day," implored Urling. "Another primary and general election will be held in 2006 and we will elect a good representative at that time. Please do not cast a vote for Jean Schmidt -- it will be wasted."

Gee, in an election where turnout will likely be low, we have a conservative group telling all Repubs to stay home! This is definitely a good sign for Hackett as he has a lot of volunteers going door to door around the clock for him. Schmidt doesn't even have a ground squad.
