Thanks to some super-sleuthing by our network of tipsters, we’ve found this great video from a couple weeks back of Bill Peirce being group interviewed on ONN’s Capitol Square, on Ohio’s premier news station (ONN is broadcast on public airwaves here). The momentum on this campaign is starting to finally get underway now that the summer season of politcal coverage is beginning and being on a major Sunday program is sure to help set things in motion.
I also spoke with Charles Peirce, who’s been acting as campaign manager given his expertise in marketing and he’s informed me that in addition to the Ohio metro taxi advertising that has been a fixture for several months now, he has contracted a printing company to hand out campaign information cards in urban center bars and pubs (with the opposite side containing the worlds smallest political quiz, something I’ve had exceptional results with), and that bumper stickers and electronic billboards are planned as well.
With a small budget, Peirce’s campaign is showing that even against two powerful fundraisers, he’s not going to stand back and just whisper from the rafters during this political season, as he’s also slated to appear at the Cleveland Improv on July 31st for a major fundraiser to kick off a larger round of advertising as his underdog campaign gets more local media attention in the coming months.
