Sterling is a state Republican delegate and leading up to the GOP convention, and later the primary election, I was receiving several calls a night at my home, all for Sterling. That’s because my home number was mistakenly listed as Sterling’s on the delegate list, which made me a popular guy with Republican candidates.
It’s happening again. But at least there is a humorous side.
On Wednesday, while enjoying a relaxing night at home, I answered the phone to the inquiry: "Sterling?"
"No. Who’s this?"
"I’m calling on behalf of the Mia Love campaign."
"Wait a minute. Dave?"
It was my old friend Dave Hansen, longtime Republican guru who led the Orrin Hatch re-election campaign two years ago and now is working for Love.
It was good to hear from him, even if he thought my name was Sterling.
