Engelbert kicks off voter ed campaign
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann had one of the most memorable — and effective — political advertisements in recent Mississippi memory three years ago.
Hosemann sat on a park bench with a little old lady, who laid out his message, and called Hosemann Gilbert, Wilbert, Engbert, Philbert, and Engelbert, but never Delbert. It was one of the best political spots we’ve ever seen.
A lot of people think the commercial is more responsible than anything else for Hosemann’s victory. They’re probably right.
Dorothy, the little old lady in ad, is back. This time, she’s helping with Hosemann’s voter education campaign in advance of the Nov. 2 elections. Radio and television spots will soon begin airing statewide, and Dorothy’s celebrity will begin anew.
This Friday is also the first “Voter Fact Friday,” in which Hosemann will release tidbits related to common voter questions, such as absentee voting guidelines and precinct location issues.
