R71 UPDATE: We continue to get good reports from those gathering signatures for R-71. We also continue to receive signature pages that have been separated from the entire petition form. While it is less expensive to mail just the signature page, especially if you have several petitions to send in, if the petition is not intact, it will be disqualified. Please do not separate the signature page. Keep the entire petition together.
Also, for those of you who are harassed while gathering signatures, one of our signature gatherers gave us a great idea yesterday.
She emailed me saying that she has found that if she keeps her video camera with her and begins taking video of those who are verbally assaulting her, they leave very quickly. If you have any video of this kind of behavior, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will soon have an updated report on the signature count.Sarah Palin to Campaign for Democrats: Todd not Registered Republican
Sarah Palin says she plans to jump immediately back into the national political fray.
She says she views the electorate as embattled and fatigued by nonstop partisanship.
So who will she be campaigning for?
In an exclusive interview with Ralph Z. Hallow of The Washington Times she said, "I will go around the country on behalf of candidates who believe in the right things, regardless of their party label or affiliation."
She said, "People are tired of this partisan stuff---even my own son is not a Republican."
Both her son, Track, 20, an enlisted soldier serving in Iraq and her husband Todd, are registered "non-partisan" in Alaska.
As some in the Republican Party are blaming values voters and social Conservatives for recent losses, her message is resonating with those who place principles above politics---and Party affiliation. This may not be the best time for people like Washington State's Secretary of State Sam Reed to be suggesting that the Republican Party move away from social Conservatives so they can win.
Palin's PAC has soared to over $733,000 in the past 5 months.
For those who care about our country and the direction the next election will take, the next 36 months will be very interesting.
May God lead his people in these important matters.
