Report: Likud sent 5 million texts last Election Day

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party sent 18 million text messages during last year’s election campaign, including five million on Election Day itself en route to winning its 30 mandates, Channel 2 reported on Monday night.

The report, which could not be confirmed by the party, said the Likud spent NIS 8 million on text messages as it mapped out the state to find one million potential Likud voters and sent them emails, Facebook messages and texts throughout the campaign.

When the party hit a nadir ahead of the election, the potential voters were sent voice-mail messages with recordings of Likud politicians including Miri Regev and Bennie Begin.
