Nothing gets an undecided voter off the fence like a yard sign crashing through the windshield — or living room window.
And so with Hurricane Sandy about to blast into Virginia, U.S. Senate hopefuls George Allen (R) and Timothy M. Kaine (D) asked supporters to take their yard signs down.
The two former governors, who have agreed on little else in their hard-fought campaign to succeed Sen. Jim Webb (D), suddenly see eye-to-eye on projectile placards.
“[D]on’t forget that yard signs are made of metal frames that can blow around in strong winds, causing dangerous conditions and damage to homes and property,” Allen said in an email to supporters Sunday. “So for safety, bring them inside.”
Kaine made the same request in an email of his own: “[T]he last thing we want is for yard signs to become projectiles.”
