It was my pleasure and privilege to join with Governor Martin O'Malley at the Story County Democrats campaign office yesterday morning for the canvass kick-off, to give all of our fantastic volunteers our thanks and encouragement as they hit the pavement to make the final push before the election.
Governor O'Malley said "I have spent a lot of time in campaign offices over the past year, and wow, there's a whole lot of activity going on here! You guys are obviously working hard!" It really is a tribute to all of our volunteers, how far we've come. I'm delighted that Governor O'Malley found it so obvious and encouraging. Thank you, a thousand times, thank you!
And thanks to Governor O'Malley as well, for his very kind words about me. I really appreciate his friendship, trust, and enthusiasm. After I was presented with a check for a thousand dollars by the Story County Democrats, Governor O'Malley shouted out, "I'll match that! A thousand from me, too!"
How can you not love this guy? He can come to my campaign events ANY TIME!!
But we're not out of the woods by any stretch yet. We're still short about ten thousand for a television ad in a key market. Anything you can chip in will get us toward that goal of one final media blitz next weekend. Please click here if you can help. You don't have to be a big spender, like the wonderful Governor O'Malley. Just have the same big heart, and big hopes for Iowa's future.
