fundraising

I disagree with the statement that fundraising isn’t essential in a primary. One of the first indications that Obama was a serious candidate was that he is a great fundraiser. Raising money makes people take notice. Some of Becky’s money has come from the Garst family and “other wealthy sources”, but not all of it. I’ve donated $50 to her campaign–it took me two months, because I don’t have a lot to spare, but I believe in her so I figured it was worth it.

Like it or not all candidates need money–even it is just for gas money to drive around to different campaign stops. I would encourage everyone to donate what they can to whomever he or she thinks would be the best person for the job. Latham certainly has way more money than any of them–about $700,000 last I read, so we have to do what we can to make them competitive.

actually

I have met everyone but Miskell. I was at the district convention so I’ve heard everyone speak–including Miskell, but I didn’t meet him personally. I’ve looked at all of the websites and have google alerts set up so that I don’t miss any news articles. I stand by my choice.

Political Courage Test

Bill, either you are misinformed or deliberatly trying to distort information. Becky Greenwald didn’t take the political courage test, but neither did William Meyers or Kevin Miskell. If you will only vote for someone who took the test, then you should plan to vote for Kurt Meyer. He’s the only fourth district candidate who filled it out. Here’s the William Meyers link.

By the way, Barack Obama didn’t take it either, nor did any of the other major presidential candidates.

In fact, according to wikipedia most politicians don’t take it because opponents tend to take pieces of information out of context and do attack ads.

court

Good points desmoinesdem. Additionally we have the supreme court to consider. One reason that I almost always vote party rather than individual in the general election is because of the supreme court. Thanks to GW we are only one or two votes away from loosing Row V. Wade. An ultraconservative supreme court would also back up anti-gay legislation and a whole host of things that I don’t even want to think about. Especially if John McCain is elected, we need a strong democratic majority in congress to block any justices that would make us go backwards.
