Just received this from a District 19 reader who was unfortunate enough to receive this Robocall over the dinner hour from State Senate Stace Nelson. They described it as “angry, and not just a little bizarre” going into the last day of campaigning before the vote on June 7th:
Ironically, I’m told that Monday there is a court hearing in the long quiet Robocall civil trial where Rushmore PAC is attempting to hold Nelson and others financially responsible for calling a number of cell phone numbers without permission a couple of years back. So using robocalls in attack ads for his campaign is familiar territory for the former State Representative.
Anyway, getting back to today’s Sunday dinner robocall, the sender wasn’t impressed, and found it an odd choice for the day when people are supposed to practice being a Christian, especially when Nelson is complaining that he’s not the one using negative campaigning….. in a very negative campaign robocall.
There is speculation that this past weeks’ Wollmann postcard and other campaign efforts by his opponent may have Nelson rattled. Going hard negative at a time when candidates typically keep it positive doesn’t do anything to dispel that rumor.
