Kansans and the Romney GOTV efforts

I'm fairly certain that everyone who would be interested in reading this blog also receives emails from the KS GOP and other statewide political sources. However, on the off chance there are readers here who aren't sure how to get involved with political activists or the party, I'm sharing a little GOTV information.

This election is the most critical of my lifetime, and Kansas is mercifully safe for Republicans and specifically conservatives. But the same can't be said for neighboring states. They could use fresh volunteers and activists on the ground during this critical campaign.

There are two efforts afoot to put Kansans on the ground in critical swing states. If you have time, please go help Team Romney in Colorado and/or in Iowa.

Here's the information I received:

COLORADO  October 26-28 
What:  Colorado trip is being planned by Randy Duncan, Michelle Martin and the KS College Republicans.  
Depart:  A carpool from Salina, will leave about 5 pm on Friday 
Return:  Sunday late afternoon/early evening.   
Contact Michelle at michelle@martinlawofficellc.com or Team Romney at Kansans4Romney@gmail.com for more info or to RSVP.

IOWA  Saturday, October 27

What:  2 large (56 person) buses drive volunteers to Council Bluffs and Des Moines, for a day of walking.   Individuals can also drive themselves & follow along.
Depart:  7:30 am:    KSGOP Victory Center, 4501 College Blvd, Leawood, KS 66211.   
Return:  About 10pm
Contact:   Team Romney at Kansans4Romney@gmail.com for more info or to RSVP.  



 "I think Obama is very narrowly ahead, and Romney is closing.  I say that for a lot of reasons, but the big one is the Republicans are doing a far better job on absentee ballots than they've ever done before.  This race feels a lot like 2000, 2004.   In 2000, Gore won by about four votes per precinct. President Bush in 2004 won by about 10 votes per precinct. So, this is really about the ground game now.  All this TV is just muzak now. It's not having much impact.   It's all about who's going to get out the last few people to go vote."
