BEDFORD, NH – April 2, 2020 – With coronavirus guidelines in place, old-fashioned politicking has gone high-tech in New Hampshire.
Bryant “Corky” Messner, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, is embracing the new technologies that allow him to schedule virtual meetings with GOP groups and supporters across the Granite State.
“Our telephone town halls are drawing hundreds of folks who can dial in and get to know me, as well as ask questions on issues they feel are critical to New Hampshire,” says Messner. “These voters may not have had the time to attend an in-person meeting if these were normal times, but now, they can sit comfortably and safely in their homes and ‘meet’ a candidate and interact with that candidate.”
In addition to these calls, which are scheduled multiple times per week in targeted geographic areas of the state, Messner is setting up Zoom meetings with video capability, to ‘appear’ before GOP committee groups. The first took place yesterday with a Somersworth group.
“We’ve had to rewrite our playbook through this health crisis, but we’ve managed to continue our outreach and keep our campaign moving ahead,” says Messner. “More importantly, we’ve given Granite Staters a way to stay informed and engaged. And they wouldn’t have it any other way.”
