GOTV in action

On Saturday morning, I headed to Fulton County Republican Party headquarters to work their phone bank for a few hours.

While there, I did get to talk to a lot of people, all within Georgia. I decided to do that in order to feel more comfortable with making phone calls to other regions outside of the office, courtesy of the campaign phone bank.

On a bright note, I did get to spend a few minutes speaking with Rep. Tom Price (GA-6). We talked for a little while about the campaign as well as his fight, along with other House Republicans, to keep speaking despite the House being shut down and lights turned off by Nancy Pelosi. They continued to speak on drilling and gas prices, which soon shot to record highs, and action that should be taken in order to avoid reaching those highs. Soon, a couple dozen other House Republicans joined in the effort.

Here's what he had to say about this week:

"It's important that we keep fighting this current leadership. It's important that they know we will not tolerate these antics. It's important that we show them on Tuesday that we will not be ignored and that we will never stop fighting."

I didn't have my camera, so I don't have any pictures.

Phone banking is still the best way right now unless you have an audience of a few hundred thousand. To do some phone banking for any location, click here. The McCain campaign is now ahead in Missouri and within the margin of error in enough states to pull out a win - unthinkable two weeks ago - so go finish the drill.
