Schansberg has tried a grassroots approach to campaigning, attending all 20 county fairs in the 9th District and just talking to people.
“In the downstate towns we’ve gotten terrific media coverage,” Schansberg said. “I was on vacation in Columbus and about half the people there were at least aware of me.”
A major boon for his campaign came with his inclusion in the first debate last Thursday at WTIU on IU’s Bloomington campus.
