Nowhere to Run

Yesterday, Mike announced that his campaign would be communicating with voters via text messaging, and today he sent his army of volunteers and supporters underground to reach voters in the one place where their phones get no signal.

“Starting at 7:00 AM Wednesday morning, the Bloomberg for Mayor Campaign launched the biggest subway visibility blitz of the 2005 Mayoral election,” noted a press release. “Hundreds of supporters handed out literature at 447 subway stations across the City, distributing 250,000 pieces of campaign literature.”

For the Bloomberg-weary New Yorker, there are fewer and fewer places to hide.

And Ben notes that at his Brooklyn subway station, a union volunteer passed off all his flyers to the local panhandler, despite her being visibly disturbed.
