GOTV Done!

Well, that was a little work, but not so bad. Phone banking's pretty easy. Of the people I actually got a hold of, I'd say there were two or three Bielat supporters for every Frank supporter.

One woman told me that no she had never heard of Bielat. Is he Republican?, she asked, sounding angry. Yes, I replied sheepishly.

Well then he's got my vote, she said. I don't care what his name is, I'm voting all of them (Democrats) out.

Not a whole lot of people showed up here, but a a few stalwarts: Have Blue, Stumbo, Fluffy. Not as many as I'd hoped, but we did some good.

Oh, a little news I heard: Bielat outraised Frank in September, $378,000 to $315,000, and, hear-tell, it's gotten better since.

More GOTV: Be The Wave had a slow roll-out this week, but there should be a lot more events ready to go for next weekend.

One more thing: I'm sorry I didn't blog too much this week. I got stuck on this one project, and wound up not really taking care of my actual job here. But now that that's sort of done, and I know the basics of this, I'll go back to regular-hours blogging without taking off hours and hours during weekdays.

Next week, for me, I'm thinking NJ-3, Jon Runyan (former Philadelphia Eagle) vs. incumbent Adler and his fake-Tea-Party put-up stooge. (No, seriously, the "tea party" stooge is a fake and recruited just to siphon votes away from the challenger-- at least that's what everyone (including the newspapers) thinks.)
