Curry Campaign Finally Rolling
Terry Curry's campaign for Prosecutor has heated up these past few weeks and is now rolling with that momentum I previously called for in other blog posts.
Curry's campaign has knocked on thousands of doors (including mine in Decatur Township) so far, and they have been making thousands of phone calls while the candidate himself continues to raise campaign cash for the fall. Caught at a recent fundraiser, Curry says that his message is about to roll out and that he hopes to continue to get some traction with earned media as well.
It appears that Curry intends to make his message about his accomplishments as a Deputy Prosecutor. He is out and talking up his record of getting convictions in all different sorts of crime. Of course, this is in sharp contrast to the current prosecutor who continues to underwhelm even his former friends.
His opponent, Mark Massa, has also had his campaign out and about, but I have heard from sources that are as reliable as Abdul's are sometimes (hehehe, sorry big guy) that Massa seems disinterested in the campaign. There are reports from some sources that Massa was less than enthused about running but felt bad about turning down the Governor Daniels' direct request for cover...I mean to run. It will be interesting to see where Massa lands after the campaign ends.
It seems like the campaign for Prosecutor is beginning to ramp up towards the crescendo in November.
