LIVE blogging: Larry Kissell campaign kick-off

I'm reporting from Biscoe, NC, campaign headquarters of the Larry Kissell for congress campaign.

About 100 folks showed up to get some good BBQ and talk about what we're going to do to get 330 more votes and beat Robin Hayes in 2008!


Fp'd by Betsy. I am so sad I am missing this.

Comments

I got drafted

Since I'm the BlueNC'er that showed up, we thought it might be a good idea to share with you what's going on right here.
So sit back and enjoy!

Larry speaking right now

I hope y'all are reading this ;-)
Pictures will be posted ASAP.

late, but yes!

One of the pitfalls of childhood is that one doesn't have to understand something to feel it. - Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Our troops mean everything to us.

Army wife is talking right now.
Says her husband has missed all important milestones in the lives of her 2 daughters.
We need to get Larry elected to break the stalemate in Congress.

Thanks for plugging everyone in!

great job. go larry!

Dannie Montgomery speaking now

She says republicans should be afraid. She's traveled all around the state and heard and seen so many people that are ready to take our country back.
Kissell has people fired up, a new day has arrived.
That new day is all about hope. "Nc is going to be so hot in November 2008 that theyre going to see the smoke all the way in Washington DC."
Let's encourage everyone to give as much as they can to this campaign.
So the 8th district is going to be really represented by a man who knows his people.

I love it

Dannie is amazing. She has such a passion for what she is doing.

Larry Speaking

Says he has to think back to where this campaign came from.
Recalls how he told Tina, his wife, that he was running for Congress.
"We can do so much more and better in this country then what we're doing right now. That's why i stood up."

we're doing it again

" the issues we brought forth are too important to the people of the 8th district"
"It's not going to be a piece of cake."

we need common sense in Washington

Larry went to the Charlotte airport USO operation.
Met soldiers, relatives...
We need someone who is going to look after these service people, that's what we're going to be about.
Helping the local people in this district, the environment, education, health care..thats what we're about.
Im not a career politician, this is a WE campaign.

I want a congressman

Who will be able to look each and every service member and their family in the eye and say that he did everything he could to protect them, and to give them what we owe them for their service. Larry will be able to do so honestly, and no matter what will do what is right. I know it, and I think the people of the 8th will figure it out in time.

Dont wait until November '08

We all need to start working now.
The change in America begins tonight right here.
Come November we'll be talking about you all coming to visit in Washington!

I will go for the swearing in.....

I'm really excited. I'll drag Lovex7 with me....she has a relative up there. :)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

My brother lives in DC

My brother lives on Capitol Hill (Constitution Ave) so everyone can stay there for the inaguration (sp?).

Not very big

One of those 100 year old row houses so it is not very big but we are all friends :-)

this is great!

You are making a habit out of this live-blogging, LiberalNC. I really appreciate it!


Be the change you wish to see in the world. --Gandhi

That's one of the reasons I fp'd it

Not every live-blog will get fp'd.....we make a habit out of it someone might choose to live-blog a Carolina Basketball game or something :) LiberalNC has gone to a lot of trouble to do this and Larry has been loyal to BlueNC. I figure we can fp this kickoff.
