Leaked documents obtained by a conservative magazine reveal a Democratic Georgia U.S. Senate candidate’s possible plan to win over key parts of the electorate in an effort to come out triumphant in the election.
The campaign plan, published online Monday by the National Review, appears to have been prepared by Democratic strategist Diane Feldman in December for candidate Michelle Nunn.
The documents particularly address the specific communities needed by Nunn to raise funds for her campaign. Such groups included the Jewish and Asian community, as well as the gay and lesbian community.
Speaking of the Jewish community, the memo stated that there is “tremendous financial opportunity,” but noted that the the candidate’s “position on Israel will largely determine the level of support here.”
Her stance on Israel was listed as “TBD” at the time.
Asians, also highlighted as a group key to fundraising, were described as a “very tight” community.
“This is a community more likely to be a fundraising base than some of the others,” the document said.
The campaign plan also called on Nunn to draw upon the LGBT community’s resources.
“Michelle’s positions on gay marriage and the HRC endorsement provide a huge opportunity for mobilizing this community and their substantial resources,” it said.
The trove of documents also called for preparing “pushback documents,” in an attempt to stymie GOP attacks.
“The Research team will produce a “pushback” document for each identified vulnerability in Michelle’s record, as well as common attacks frequently leveled against Democratic Senate candidates,” it said.
