Hello sir, this is James Smith with Ideal Living media. I wanted to give you an update.

I just got a call from Nathan at the Cannon campaign and he said that there's a scheduling conflict - and this is after talking to him three previous times and in spite of him swearing that he'll be there no matter what. I'm sorry if that puts you in any kind of a bind. I told him that there'll still be a seat available for Cannon if he wants to show up, and I suggested to him that after talking to many of the local citizens here - I get the general questions that people want to ask - that he may want to show up, cause people here are irritated with him.

I wanted to mention to you candidly - each time I spoke with them, Nathan asked me why YOU were going to be there, and gave me a hard time about it in kind of an unusual way. He never mentioned Jacob. My impression - my personal impression - is that he's very nervous about meeting with you, and so I just wanted to let you know that. He told me today that he could come, and that Cannon couldn't make it - and then Nathan said, "And I don't know why you're having Burridge there anyway!" And I said, "Well, because he asked to come, because we don't want to run afoul of any campaign broadcast laws .. " You know, I gave him a list of reasons. "Besides," I said, "we're a small little production company and we won't be able to do this in November, probably." And he said, "You know, I don't think you should have him there." And I said, "Well, it turns out that that was a wise decision since you guys are backing out after we scheduled things around your schedule."Well, he was very upset.I just wanted to let you know that. I don't know what's going on with them but they're running scared.

My number is 555-5555, and I hope you can still make it. I haven't heard anything to the contrary from Jacob that he won't be there, so I hope you both will be able to make it. He told me personally he'll be able to make it, and I think the people will be happy to meet with you around town if you want to come early - I think that's a really good idea. My number is...Thank you very much.
