If Linda Clifford's Math is Right

by folkbum

. . . when she says . . .
she was pleased with the results as well. "I think it's especially exciting I made it through the primary, despite the fact (Ziegler and outside groups) outspent me about 10 to 1, spending over half a million dollars on the votes she achieved," Clifford said.
. . . that means Annette Ziegler, the Club for Growth, the Chamber of Commerce, et al. spent about $3.25 for every vote received. (I know robocalls are cheap, but did I really need five or six in the week before the election?) Linda Clifford, on the other hand, spent less than 75¢ per vote.

Given that their filings show them at parity--and that undoubtedly, some third-party will be spending money on Clifford in the next month the way the anti-consumer and anti-choice goups will for Ziegler--Clifford's poised to get a much better return in the general than she did here.

In the meantime, there's no reason for you not to go show some love yourself.
