Still Time Left To Make The Right Calls

We've less than thirteen hours before the polls open, and we still need plenty of volunteers to help get out the vote. For instance, in my write-in campaign to become the Mayor of Eagan, we have people at campaign headquarters right now, helping to spread the message. My son has pledged to make a phone call after he finishes working out of the licks for the expert level of Guitar Hero, which I'm assuming means within the next half hour. I just got done walking around my local gas station, and I'm encouraged by the response there as well. The pump accepted my credit card, and the attendant even said hello over the loudspeaker. Momentum is building, and I think I'll even reach that heretofore unexpected level of twenty write-in votes!

However, we need more of an effort for the rest of the Republicans. After this weekend, CQ readers have made over 4600 phone calls for the Get On The Phone campaign, inviting fellow Republicans in key districts to make it to the polls tomorrow. This new and innovative campaign technique caught the eye of CNN in today's Situation Room, and Abbi Tatton featured CQ in her report:

There's still time to get more people to the polls. If you haven't signed up for calls yet, it's easy. Follow the link and register, and you will get 30 people to call. That's it -- just 30 calls, something that can be finished in 30 minutes. If all that separates us from Republican management of Congress is those 30 minutes, isn't that a bargain? Heck, that's a better bargain than my write-in campaign and a Fresca -- and that's saying something!
