After spending a week or so leveling “Marxist” accusations against his Democratic rival, Joe Lhota has switched to a new talking point: managerial experience.
Over the past 48 hours, the Republican mayoral candidate has repeatedly skewered Bill de Blasio for failing to oversee any significant budget over the course of his career.
Comptroller rivals Scott Stringer and Eliot Spitzer are set to face off later this morning in their very first debate, hosted by WABC–and sparks in the studio are sure to fly.
But Mr. Stringer’s camp is also hoping to dominate the online conversation, so they shot a missive to supporters last night with elaborate instructions on how to help the campaign over social media. In addition to hashtag suggestions, the email comes complete with “sample tweets” and “suggested messaging points” divided into “On Scott” and “On Eliot” sections.
