Targeting tourists from Vermont?

One of the miscellaneous oddball things
about this election season can be found on East Main Street, next to the Java Joe's drive-through coffee shop.
We did a double-take driving by over the weekend when we saw a "Pollina for Governor" sign in the ground next to the signs we're used to, i.e. Michelle Cook for state rep and David Cappiello for Congress.
Of course, there is no race for governor in Connecticut this year.
That lawn sign is from Vermont, where Anthony Pollina, who at various times has run for governor and lieutenant governor as a Democrat and member of the Progressive Party, is running again.
Upon further scrutiny of the parking lot near Java Joe's, we also found a "Jeanne Shaheen for U.S. Senate" sign.
There is no race for U.S. Senate in Connecticut this year, either.
But those of us who've spent time in other parts of New England are familiar with her, too.
Shaheen is a former New Hampshire governor who is challenging incumbent U.S. Sen. John Sununu this year.

this should be illegal. confusing grandma with superfluous signage is a great way to ensure her vote is kept sane.

Hopefully the owner takes them down, it's bad enough we have so many districts that voters more often then not do not know who is their State Senator, Rep, Congressman, etc.
