And that was an essential fact in thinking about his choice of a representational strategy. Jack Flynt, 1970–1972 33 Speeches Had Flynt chosen to articulate or advocate his positions on public policy, he would have done so in his public appearances.

When he next ran for solicitor, he added three nearby rural counties and 6,000 more voters—and folded a chunk of them into his strongly supportive primary and reelection constituencies.
