McCallister met Hulshof at a fundraiser in Springfield a few weeks back. He met Steelman in Hartville during her RV tour Monday.
***She's stopping in each of the 47 counties with the largest number of likely G.O.P. voters . . . Two days before each visit, those voters get an automated call . . . Fewer than 1 percent show up, but the calls themselves are a goal
Excerpts from McCallister's e-mail:
"Steelman was way more impressive today (in Hartville). She seems to know where she wants to take the state on many topics. She seems truly concerned on all parts of the economy but with an ear to the people not just the Republican elitists."
