Sam Hall Calls On Liberals To Be Pragmatic
Sam Hall, who is managing Johnny DuPree’s gubernatorial campaign, recently posted a note on Facebook calling on liberals to be pragmatic this fall, saying that is needed more so than ideology. Hall said he was speaking on behalf of himself and not the campaign.
What we have seen on Facebook and other social networking sites is a group of some vocal liberals who aren’t happy with DuPree or Jim Hood largely centered around their pro-life platforms and their support for the Personhood Amendment in particular. Some have said they will not bother to vote for either candidate.
Here is the note:
As I have mentioned in the past, I think this liberal backlash is more a creation of the Internet than anything else, but it’s obviously not helpful to Democrats who struggle to find a coalition that gives them a majority of the vote in the state. You may remember back in February Gallup released polling on the state that found just 13.8 percent of Mississippians considering themselves liberal, the smallest share in the country. Similarly, 50.5 percent label themselves conservative- the only state in the union to break the 50 percent marker.
