For the candidates with primary opponents this is the last weekend before the election on Tuesday to get some campaigning in.

Gary Grigsby, a Democratic party candidate in the 51st Legislative District, sets out for some last weekend before the primary campaigning.

Unlike many of the statewide campaigns and some state senate races with their very large media budgets – you’ve seen the television commercials – most House candidates work the phones, go door to door, put up signs, run a few newspaper ads and drop a few home grown mail pieces. The mail and other contacts are directed at frequent voters – those people who actually bother to show up and vote in off year, primary, and local issue elections. On Tuesday evening the candidates will find out if it all worked.

It’s retail politics the way it should be.
