Wow! Has it really been a month since I've posted here? It's been crazy busy trying to visit every good voting household in the district in only 8 weeks. This is at least my 9th election campaign and there have a been a number of "firsts" for me in the last month:
* Several long-time friends, who I assumed would stay out of the race on account of our years of friendship, are supporting my opponent. That hurts a lot.
* I've been endorsed by the G.R. Chamber of Commerce PAC - they rarely endorse Democrats and they've never endorsed me before.
* I met the most racist man I've ever encountered on the campaign trail. I didn't realize that there were still people like that out there and so open about it.
* I recently spent 7 hours knocking on doors in one day - the most I've ever done in one day. I was surprised at how many people were home in the morning and early afternoon. It was a very productive day!
I'll try to post a little more often, although I wonder if anyone is reading....
