Shas is trying to attract Ashkenazi Charedi votes

Many Ashkenazi Charedim are upset at the Ashkenazi Charedi leadership for what happened in the Jerusalem mayoral election. Porush's supporters cannot bring themselves to vote for UTJ where Litzman is no 1 on the list. Shas is trying to capitalize on this and get these disaffected Ashkenazim to vote for them.

I have a hard time believing that this will work, as there is a lot of bias in the Ashkenazi Charedi world against Sefardim and therefore it is hard for me to see many Ashkenzim voting for Shas.
