Subject: [Lnc-business] Alabama Race for US Senate

From: Whitney Bilyeu
Posted at the request of the Rob Bishop Campaign:
Alabama has an upcoming Special Election for US Senate on December 12th. Ron Bishop is an active Libertarian candidate, running a write-in campaign, with a “boisterous group of activists” behind him.
This is an important race, that could shift the balance of power in the Senate, according to Jim Albea, Bishop’s Campaign Manager. The opponents are a “Bannon-backed” Republican and a Democrat, who is misplaced in Alabama politics.
The Bishop campaign would like to hire a skywriter to write “Who is Rob Bishop?” over the upcoming Auburn-Alabama game on November 25th. This would tie in with the write-in campaign, and is an out-of-the-box approach to marketing.
The estimated cost for this is $15,000, according to Albea, and is considered by the campaign to be a good investment, since this game is two weeks before the election, and watched by “every person in the state”.
Time is of the essence for this, so I am putting it out to Region 7, in case any of you would like to contribute to this endeavor. You may do so at https://ron-lpalabama.nationbuilder.com.
Please contact Jim Albea at 205-807-8165 or Jim.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
(I changed the email address for Jim as requested by him after I got off the phone with him. The original email from Whitney to LNC has Jim’s personal email).
Unbeknownst to Jim, at the very same time national news broke that the Republican candidate in the race, Roy Moore, has been accused of molestation by several girls, at least one of whom was 14 at the time.
Judge Moore, twice removed from the bench for judicial misconduct, denies the allegations and calls them fake news from the liberal media.
