30 Minutes To Victory!


Note: This post will ride near the top all weekend long.

It's come down to the ground game. If Republicans want to ensure that the GOP continues to control Congress after the midterms, we need to get organized in the final hours.

The Republican Party has a great way for the blogging community to get involved and to help get voters to the polls. We need people to man the phones and encourage voters to cast their ballots, and now readers can work from home to do it. Simply click here or on the logo above to volunteer, and the Republican Party will assign you a short list of people to call. It shouldn't cost you any more than 30 minutes to complete your calls, and you can use your free cell phone minutes on the weekend, so it won't cost you any money at all.

Let me give you the short, blog-version of the St. Crispin's Day speech from Henry V. If November 8th arrives and we have lost control of the House or Senate, or both, and you didn't spend that 30 minutes doing your best to keep Republicans in office, how will you feel? Will it be more important to secure the majorities, or to watch the Vikings blow another game on television?

In the end, elections do not get won or lost by stump speeches alone -- they hinge on broad-based efforts to extend those personal invitations to vote. Get your list and start extending your invitations. This is the time to be counted.

Note: I'd still suggest volunteering at your local GOP precinct office apart from this. It's fun to work with a group of enthusiastic volunteers in the hours before an election.
