Jordan's redesign of the site with the meter helped big time

When the primaries start, the blimp will be a big part of the news coverage....good job all! Once again congrats to the grassroots.

Now, lets make the blimp work for us instead of us working for it.

Wouldn't it be nice to have the blimp in Myrtle Beach, SC for the Republican debate on January 10th? It would ALSO be nice to have Dr. Paul interviewed on or beside the blimp the grassroots provided for him when they BOTH arrive in SC prior to the SC primaries...hint, hint!

Hey, right now we have the blimp through January 18th, guaranteed! That is amazing...amazing...

If we want the blimp for longer we have to start getting the money together. Viewers, and supporters can decide if they think the blimp is worth keeping aloft for another month. If they do the sponsorship it needs to keep flying through February 18th or beyond will come in.

With a full month to raise $200,000 -- and a lot of visibility opportunities in the coming weeks -- I think the blimp is over the hump...

Am I wrong or don't we need to raise twice that amount? We need 400,000 right?

Although I liked the blimp, I don't think I and many others will donate for the January 31st fund because Ron Paul needs 23 million dollars! People who have maxed out however can I guess try to help this thing out...

200,000 by January 31st for the downpayment. Then another 200,000 a few weeks after that. So we pretty much have almost 6+ weeks to get another 400,000!

They *were* fake pledges. But we didn't let that stop us. :)

I don't know but I don't the media really cares anymore. They've stopped talking about the blimp. Unless we let them on, they won't do much.

It was just on the Orlando news. Before that Jacksonville TV news. Next will be Tampa Bay. ITs getting everywhere in Florida, and for the locals that dont see it get to see it in the local news. This will help out the Florida Ron Paul supporters, hes the guy on the blimp!

Once primarys kick in the majors will report on it as the candidates in general are boring to talk over and over about with 24 hour news.

Florida is a critical state. Even if we don't get as much national publicity there, it is critical for the future of our campaign.

It's good to get people talking about Paul early.
