Lesson 1 from the Campaign Trail
As the weeks go by, I will try to share with you my thoughts, impressions and the education in politics that this campaign season is unloading on me. As ever, I hope you will also share your thoughts and comments.
First, having done some canvassing with Kristine Howard, our candidate for the Statehouse, let me say that it was a pleasure working with her. She is intelligent, unassuming, a very decent and dedicated person. Let’s give her all the help we can to send her to Harrisburg.
Then, the overall impression I gained is that, at least in our area, we are the majority by a mile and a half. We have the numbers and we can win, if we translate them into votes.
In almost all cases, people seemed to be motivated by a desire to change in Harrisburg and in D. C. Overall, “Vote them out” seems to be an appropriate rallying cry much more so than “Lock HIM up”.
