This was posted in another digg thread but I wanted to repeat it with a request: we have won two court decisions in two days here, and are seeing some significant snowballs start rolling down the hill.

The next phase of this is going to be combating their whisper campaigns. Their claims are and will be that we are doing this all to disrupt the convention for our own ends regarding the nomination, and not because it's simply the law. This could not be farther from the truth--our candidate's campaign has made them show their cards more than normal, but the reality is there are major players with us in Texas who voted for Huckabee and even McCain. We want a fair convention so we can have those debates FAIRLY.

So we need funds for PR! You all responded admirably on the legal costs, but this is at least as important. We don't want this great progress and the sacrifice so far to get flushed by hysteria we aren't equipped to combat. We need flyers and all kinds of other stuff at the convention to explain who we really are. So far most people we talk to aren't sure why it matters at first but get behind us VERY quickly... but we need to multiply that an order of magnitude or so.
