ANNOUNCEMENT OF SATURDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN SPRINGFIELD
Andy Martin begins to disclose his media strategy to defeat Mark Kirk
Martin will also hold the first of his central Illinois “meet and greet” sessions for area voters
(SPRINGFIELD, IL)(November 21, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a Springfield news conference Saturday, November 21st to provide the first peek at his upcoming media strategy to defeat Mark Kirk.
Martin will also hold a “meet and greet” for the Capital region, and participate in a candidate forum Saturday evening.
“Mark Kirk has $2 million ‘dirty dollars’ from special interests and Washington lobbyists to deceive and defraud Illinois voters,” Martin says. “Another name for Kirk’s cash is ‘honest graft.’ The Kirkster is a master at selling his vote for special interest cash. Kirk took over $100,000 from Exelon, and then voted for Cap and Trade. Kirk’s defense? ‘Exelon made me do it.’ What a disgrace to democracy. What a disgrace to Republican Party values.
“But cash is cash. As near as I can determine, the other candidates have neither significant campaign cash nor a significant media strategy to ‘take down’ Kirk. We do.
“I began producing campaign commercials over forty years ago, and some of them have become classics. As a broadcaster, I have been involved in every aspect of the industry. The first thing I did after becoming a candidate was to map out a media strategy.
“Saturday we will take the first step in unveiling our media strategy. Unless we get lucky, we won’t have as much cash as Kirk to spend. But our dollars will do double duty. My campaign’s analysis of the media environment is detailed.
“Interestingly, Kirk takes me more seriously as an adversary than some media types. When Kirk released his ‘poll,’ he left my name out. I was beating him. Unlike Adam Andrzejewski, who put out a ‘poll’ showing he was in second place, Kirk’s colossal ego would not let him do that. So my name was expunged.
“Kirk must be muttering The Psychoed to himself. [‘As I was going up the stair, I met a man who wasn’t there. He wasn’t there again today. I wish, I wish he’d go away.’] Well I am not going away. I am going to Washington to clean up the corruption in that foul city,” Martin says.
“We will also have a ‘meet and greet’ opportunity for Central Illinois residents to meet me,” Martin notes. “Welcome.”
