SANDWICH CAMPAIGN RECEIVES NATIONAL MEDIA ATTENTION; LAUNCHES FIRST CAMPAIGN COMMERCIAL

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – Republican write-in candidate for Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Hamilton “Ham” Sandwich, Esq., received national attention this past weekend on National Public Radio's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" Show.  During this week's broadcast, host Peter Sagal stumped Houston Chronicle Deputy Editor Kyrie O'Connor with a question regarding Ham Sandwich's race in Virginia, and then gave his audience a list of his comparative achievements and qualifications to hold this office.

“I am unaware of any other Commonwealth's Attorney race anywhere in Virginia this year garnering such national attention and exposure as Ham’s has,” commented campaign manager Dillon Pikkel.  “The response has been tremendous, and we're receiving email expressing support for Ham Sandwich's candidacy from across the country.  Ham is clearly resonating with the national electorate, which bodes well for his campaign here in Prince William County.  In addition, the traffic to our campaign website has significantly jumped since this weekend and shows no signs of slowing down.  The voters are clearly hungry for Ham Sandwich's positive message and compelling vision for the future of the Commonwealth’s Attorney office.”

“As this campaign continues to build momentum, it will be increasingly difficult for our opponent to continue to ignore our challenge to participate in a series of monthly debates,” Mr. Pikkel continued.  “If Paul Ebert does not wish to have the issues explored in-depth, in front of the voters, in a candidate's forum, we fully intend to explore those issues with the voters independently, and in Mr. Ebert's absence.”

On the heels of this national media attention, the Sandwich campaign has launched its first campaign commercial entitled, “Better Tomorrow.” The commercial may be viewed on the video-sharing website YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z96f1PD9pNQ.

Ham, a Virginia native, is a member of the Virginia Bar (Golden Phoenix division) and a partner in the law firm of Dill & Gallinger. He is married and lives with his wife, Virginia, and children Hamilton, Jr. (“Chip”) and Tina in Manassas. His campaign web site, located at http://www.votehamsandwich.com/, provides voters with his background information, rationale for running, a critique of his opponent’s record of failure in the job, information on the write-in process and a list of endorsements among other items.

NEW POLL SHOWS BROAD SUPPORT FOR SANDWICH IN RACE AGAINST EBERT; SANDWICH RENEWS DEBATE CHALLENGE

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – Republican write-in candidate for Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Hamilton “Ham” Sandwich, Esq., has scored a major upset in a new poll conducted by BVBL Associates. The interactive poll of 114 adults conducted online, which can be accessed at http://www.bvbl.net/?p=1009, found Sandwich leading incumbent Paul Ebert in the race for Commonwealth’s Attorney by a margin of 75 percent to 25 percent with a +/- 5 percent margin of error. The polling software utilized only allows one voter per IP address to participate thereby preventing duplicative voting by individuals.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support that I have received so far in this race,” Sandwich said through a statement issued by his campaign. “My solid anti-crime, anti-criminal platform as well as qualifications and abilities equal to or exceeding those of my opponent, Paul Ebert, have already drawn in so many disaffected Prince William County citizens. “I am proud to be proactively bringing my message to the voters as early as possible by establishing a comprehensive website for my campaign well in advance of my opponent.  Our bold and innovative agenda for establishing excellence within the Commonwealth Attorney's office has invigorated the voters, and we continue to receive tremendous positive feedback in the community.  Many citizens have expressed their enthusiasm for this campaign and eagerly await an opportunity to promote my candidacy with bumper stickers, yard signs, and other campaign materials that we will soon make available."

“It has been twelve days since I issued a challenge to my opponent to engage in monthly debates, and so far he has chosen not to respond.  If the basis of Paul Ebert's concerns is a desire to ensure that these debates do not descend into a bout of mud-slinging, I would like to offer to sign a clean campaign pledge, as long as Paul Ebert would agree to do the same.  My commitment to open government and Jeffersonian conservative values compels me to ensure that the public have every opportunity to evaluate the comparative qualities of the candidates in this race, and these debates will be an important forum where voters will obtain the information they need in order to make an informed choice.”

WRITE-IN CANDIDATE FOR PWC COMMONWEALTH’S ATTORNEY LAUNCHES WEB SITE; CHALLENGES EBERT TO SERIES OF DEBATES

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – Republican write-in candidate for Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Hamilton “Ham” Sandwich, Esq., has launched his new campaign web site. The site, located at http://www.votehamsandwich.com/, provides voters with background information on the candidate, his rationale for running, a critique of his opponent’s record of failure in the job, information on the write-in process and a list of endorsements among other items.

Unlike the current office holder, Paul Ebert, whose campaign does not yet have a web site, Sandwich is not afraid to engage in an open discussion of the issues with the public.

“I believe that the people of Prince William County are best served when they are well informed,” Sandwich said through a statement issued by his campaign. “Paul Ebert’s failure to do so can only be explained by the long list of failures he has compiled while in office ranging from his failure to win a conviction in the Lorena Bobbit case to the rampant cronyism in his office to the incompetence of his staff who have had a number of cases tossed by judges on account of having let statutes of limitations expire.”

“Ebert’s sole accomplishment, the conviction of the D.C. sniper, was such an open and shut case that even he couldn’t foul up. When supporters of mine noted that I could have won that conviction as well, I knew it was time to step up to the plate.”

In keeping with his commitment to open government and his Jeffersonian conservative ideals, Sandwich has issued a challenge to Ebert to engage him in a series of one-on-one debates between now and Election Day – one each month.

Ham, a Virginia native, is a member of the Virginia Bar (Golden Phoenix division) and a partner in the law firm of Dill & Gallinger. He is married and lives with his wife and children in Manassas.
