Midmorning: Micro-targeting voters and Mike Hatch
Posted at 7:34 AM on November 3, 2006 by Bill Wareham
At 9 a.m. Kerri Miller takes a look at micro-targeting, where political campaigns use a voter's profile and consumer preferences may predict a political leaning. Kerri's guests include Peter Swire, a professor of law at Ohio State University and senior fellow at the nonpartisan Center for American Progress. Swire also served as the Clinton administration's chief counselor for privacy. Also, Matthew Continetti, a staff writer at the Weekly Standard and author of The K Street Gang:The Rise and Fall of the Republican Machine; and Karen White, the national political director for EMILY's List, a political network for Democratic women who support the right to legal abortion.
At 10 a.m., Attorney General Mike Hatch is running a close race in perhaps the most important contest of his career. He joins Kerri Miller in the MPR studio in a last chance for Midmorning listeners to ask him about his stand on the issues. (Peter Hutchinson appeared on Midmorning on Monday, Gov. Tim Pawlenty was invited to appear, but declined citing scheduling conflicts.)
