"Better just to introduce yourself, tell people you're running, and ask them to vote for you," I said.
Samantha gave him the same advice. I think he's reluctant to campaign on his own behalf - he hasn't done it yet.
"I collected nominating signatures," he noted.
That's not the same.
He is going to campaign. I am going to stay at home and read my book. I want to enjoy my last few days of freedom. Spending an hour in the already-84 degree heat is not my idea of a good time.
Primo said that the union folks who interviewed him two weeks ago gave Samantha some feedback about me. "She didn't seem very supportive," they said.
I snorted when he told me this. "Yeah. Because when you said you could self fund some of the campaign but didn't want to put $50,000 of our own money into it, I agreed with you. That's not unsupportive, that's just rational. I'll bet even Hilary Clinton wouldn't want to put $50,000 of their own money into Bill's campaign. Tell them that I am getting a job just so you can run. If that's not supportive, I don't know what is."
