"All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go"

Also posted to MyDD and DailyKos

With the latest poll showing Larry Kissell in a dead heat against Republican Congressman Robin Hayes (NC-8), I'm getting my sleeping bag ready. On Sunday, I'm heading down to the 8th district, where I'll spend the entire week campaigning for Larry. I'll be making phone calls, canvassing, meeting with the "movers and shakers" in the district, attending events - and, well, pretty much anything else the campaign wants me to do. With 47% polling for Hayes and 46% for Kissell, this race can go either way. I want to make sure it goes our way.

From time to time next week, I'll come here and blog the experience. In fact, you should experience it for yourself by coming to the 8th district to campaign for Larry. I promise. You don't have to eat grits or pork barbecue if you don't want to. But you may just make the difference in who controls Congress. And, if you don't have time to come to the 8th, you can always contribute.

I'm ready to take back Congress. And, Larry's just a great candidate. He's honest and sincere. He understands the issues. And he shares my values.

On top of that, I just don't like Robin Hayes. He's arrogant. We saw his arrogance when he voted for CAFTA, after repeatedly promising to vote against it. We heard it this week when, asked about the latest poll numbers, he replied, "a lot of people we know say `you've got it made, you don't have a race.'"

But Robin Hayes is Casey at the bat. And on November 8th, I predict there'll be no joy in his Mudville.Visit www.ncdp.org


Good to see you get into Larry's corner

He's doing a damn good job of campaigning but your help and John Edward's help will surely put him over the top!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

cant wait

Friday - John Edwards
Saturday - Canvassing
Sunday - Jerry gets to the district
Monday - Canvassing

Now THAT is a weekend.


"Keep the Faith"

I'll see y'all on the ground

I'll see y'all on the ground in the 8th.

Thanks for all you do!

Go on over and ask questions!
Sorry to be off topic, I thought this was important enough, especially since JRE will be with Larry in two days.

Thanks for the heads up

Go there and ask him to encourage Richard Moore to run against Dole for the Senate in 08 instead of against Bev Perdue for Governor.

Moore might listen to him.

Purty please?

Hey Jerry

been on talk radio lately spreading the democratic message?

Jerry - NC 06 could use your support, too

And we're right next door. If you let me know when you'll be even close to Moore County or Randolph County and would be willing to meet with Dems and Rory Blake I will make it happen. Please. Help us. We've got willing foot soldiers, man, ready and able to go out and win this thing door to door. We need to hear from our leaders. We need to know that the state party hasn't given up on us.
