FINE Gael TD for Cork South Central, Jerry Buttimer, has said there is a positive response to the Mitchell for President campaign on the ground.
“The Mitchell for President campaign has really begun to gather momentum on the ground, following on from some very strong performances by Gay Mitchell in the media over the last few days.
“More and more people are getting to know who Gay Mitchell is, what he is about and what kind of President he will make.
“Our canvass teams, led by TDs, Senators and Councillors in Cork, are reporting very positive feedback from the people they are meeting.
“Much of the Presidential race up until now has been about bland, aspirational sound-bytes.
