Here is Lauren Valle, New York resident, in Kentucky (over 700 miles from home) reaching into the vehicle with her sign.
After being dragged away for nearly jumping through the window of the moving vehicle with her sign, she runs completely around the vehicle and runs straight for Rand Paul. This picture is moments before she makes the dash from across the street towards Rand Paul.
Tips on Earning Media Attention
Here's some tips to help you earn the best media coverage possible:
Be flexible. You'll want to have a plan, but be ready to adapt and make quick decisions on-the-fly.
Find the Republican candidate. Our interaction with the Republican candidate will be the most media-worthy part of the event. Don't expect to get very close while carrying signs or an over-sized certificate, but instead get a pair of people (the RepubliCorp spokesperon and a videographer or photographer) to join the greeting line, and present a small version of the award to the candidate.
Find the media and go to them. Your action is for the media. Our goal is to reach undecided or swing voters with a message about the RepubliCorps takeover of Congress. For that reason, everything you do should be for the media, or for taking our own video and pictures that we then share. You don't need to engage or persuade anyone at Republican events, and you should avoid spending time talking to them.
Stage a scene for Republican candidate's supporters. The reactions of a candidate's supporters to the RepubliCorp brand is a compelling part of the event. Try to position at least one scene near or in the crowd of supporters, and try to capture their response to your action on video.
Planning four "Bird-Dogging" of Republican targets by posing as "Republicorp" members, to gain media attention around the country.
Some things said on this webcast:
1. You are Republicorp. Take on this personal. Say you are a spokesperson for "Republicorp"
2. Don't wait for the media to come to you, you go to them. Be relentless. Might have to repeat your stunt 2-3 times. Key to breaking through in the media is repetition, repetition, repetition. Be sure to "have some fun".
