No Robo-Calls For Candidate Cramer

One of the political professionals that I spoke to encouraged me to use recorded phone calls to likely voters—and at about $0.10 to $0.11 per call, it was cheap enough that I could have had the robots call every likely voter in the district for less than $1000. But I decided not to do this, because I find these robocalls so annoying. If they annoy me, they probably annoy others/Clayton Cramer.

Question: What do you think of robo-calls from political candidates?
