Concord, NH -
Chris Dodd's not the only one hyping Red Sox baseball, and Draft Gore's not the only one taking out full page ads these days. On page B3 of today's Concord Monitor, a Mike Gravel supporter has purchased the entire page to tout the candidacy of the former Alaska Senator.
At the top of the ad it says this:
"The Red Sox and Patriots used to be underdogs, too"
Then at the bottom is says, "Root for" and shows a waving pennant with the words "Mike Gravel" written upon it.
The fine print at the bottom encourages people to e-mail or telephone a man named Gregory to receive their free Gravel yard sign.
This advertisement comes as the Senator begins his first New Hampshire trip in ages. He will be in the Granite State for a few events this weekend tied to climate change and independent voters. So there you have it, folks, Gravel isn't just in it to embarrass the frontunners at the debates. He's in it to win it!
