I've just been hitting the conservative houses today.
Here's the strategy I've been using: getting people to vote for Ron Paul as a way to get CONSERVATIVE representation at the upcoming convention. I have been having awesome results from a neighborhood that has been a tough nut to crack so far. People are really responding to the idea that Ohio can make sure conservatives will be at the convention to influence the platform. Even light conservatives are being really receptive. People are very concerned that this convention will be a McCain-fest and the end of conservative influence in America. I've been very straightforward that we are rebuilding the Republican party from the ground up and the hope just flashes in their eyes.
I know we all still have hope of Ron Paul becoming the nominee, but that's not what's selling out there. Saving the Republican party by getting the conservative message to the convention is selling like hot cakes.
I didn't even want to come in the house to report this, but one of the babies wanted to come in. I'm going to drop that one off at my mother-in-law's and get back out there.
I'm [ ] from over there on [ ] Drive. I'm out canvassing today for the Ron Paul Presidential campaign. What have you heard about Ron Paul?
The campaign has moved into a new phase. McCain is the likely nominee and we are really concerned about making sure there is conservative representation at the Convention in September. (You have them at this point. They are concerned about that, too. Any concern about the anti-war stance melts away at this point because they are sure McCain will be the nominee regardless.) It is very important to the future of the Republican platform that Ohio sends conservative delegates to that convention.
The rest of the conversation flows at this point. Talking about these kids too young to vote out there sign waving helps keep up the pace when the conversation seems to be turning to the funeral of the Republican Party. Close up however you normally do.
