The Day Before Election, Kunkle Makes a Last-Minute Appeal to a Very Specific Audience
Which brings us to this: My 2011 Dallas Mayoral Election Scrapbook (thanks, Michael's!) is thick with Rawlings mailers; they seem to arrive every other day, the latest bearing a brown briefcase and yet another reference to how Dallas needs a mayor who can "bring business & growth to Dallas" (so what's in the briefcase? Oh, calm down). The Kunkle mailers have been very few and awfully far between, but two showed up this week, including the one that follows titled "No more business as usual," lest you think he and Rawlings are somehow the same man.
Rawlings too has spent small fortunes on slick Web and TV spots, most produced by his friends at Jake:Ferguson. Kunkle's run zero -- that is, till this morning. It's a radio spot airing on a single station: KTCK-1310 AM, The Ticket. Which means, of course, it's built around one particular moment that occurred on the station long ago, when Kunkle was the commissioner and Greg Williams was a Hardliner. It's below.
