Here’s a fresh take on Judicial campaigning.
A candidate for Nevada Family Court Judge, attorney Joseph Scalia, has announced a dramatically different approach to running his campaign for Judge. Instead of the usual fund-raising and spending, Scalia has pledged to match, dollar for dollar, all monies spent by his opponent on campaigning with matching donations to local, non-profit charities in the Las Vegas, Nevada area.
Citing an example of unnecessary spending, Scalia noted that his opponent spent $100,000.00 in the primary and garnered 19,000 votes. Scalia spent a reported $0.00, that’s zero!, and garnered over 16,000 votes. No candidate received a majority so there will be a run-off.
So, political advisers, campaign strategist and consultants take heed, Joe Scalia is throwing judicial and political campaigning on its ear.
