Sally Bradshaw gets Obama calls, not McCain



UPDATE: One reason Bradshaw is not getting calls may be because we're told she voted absentee on Oct. 17, so GOP would not be bothering to contact her again.

One nugget from a spot on NYT story about McCain-Palin underestimating Barack Obama's potential in Fla:

But even several state Republicans said they saw evidence that Mr. Obama was bringing new and highly effective methods to the state to find voters and turn them out.

“I’ve gotten seven calls from live Obama volunteers — and the reason I’m getting calls is because I signed up on their Web site to get notifications from their campaign,” said Sally Bradshaw, a Republican who was a senior political adviser to Jeb Bush, the former governor. Ms. Bradshaw, who supported Mitt Romney in the primary, had signed up for the list to keep informed about a rival. “I haven’t received any McCain calls,” she said.
