This is the most brilliant way to get a vote since that time Lisa Delvico offered everyone in my school a free can of Surge if they voted her for student council. Steve French is a candidate for Alabama Legislature, and believes he found a clever way to attract people to his campaign. French is offering a free shotgun in a register to win contest.

 “It's a fun way to campaign, to be honest," -Steve French, ABC3340

After all, what’s more fun than a shotgun? A free shot gun! And the best part about this prize is if you win the shotgun and don’t want it, you are aloud to purchase another gun from the store in which it came from of equal or less value.

Why a shotgun? My guess is French understand if one of his supporters wins it, then they will use it to convince the rest of the voters to vote in his favor.
