Georgia Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine took to the Twitterverse earlier to announce he'd raised more than $420,000 in his quest to become the GOP gubernatorial nominee. His campaign says he's raised a total of $1.45 million to date and has "slightly over one million" cash on hand.
"John Oxendine's positive message offering real solutions for the issues facing Georgia is clearly resonating with people all across the state," said Tim Echols, campaign manager. "John Oxendine's Contract with Georgia offers specific policy solutions the people of Georgia are looking for from a leader."
Hmmm. Positive messages.
Last Thursday, Oxendine's supporters heard a little bit of that positivity. In an email to fellow members of the Ox Army, the candidate asked supporters to scrounge up whatever coins they had in their couches, seal them in an email, and fax them to his campaign. The deadline for fund-raising reports was drawing near, Oxendine wrote, and he wanted to frighten his fellow elephants fighting for the nomination.
Sure, Oxendine touted the "Contract with Georgia" you'll be hearing a lot about. But he also looked into the future, saw that former Gov. Roy Barnes had won the Democrat nomination, and decided it was time for some scare tactics!
Not only that, but the Ox knows all about Barnes' super-secret club of liberals who gather every Tuesday at Manuel's Tavern.
According to today's press release, Oxendine's campaign will secure $500,000 in TV and radio time to help get that message out. We can't wait!
