Tom Tancredo is on the road and updating us along the way. I love this guy, he's so down to earth that he could be your next door neighbor.
I am sitting in the airport in Chicago, on my way to South Carolina for Tuesday's debate. Of course, there are weather delays, so I thought I would spend the time updating you on the latest excitement from the campaign trail.
Friday in Iowa, I rushed off a plane to a conference on preventing child trafficking. I had no time to change--so my shirt was creased--and I followed Senator Brownback who was in a suit and tie. But as the Rocky Mountain News reported, it didn't matter because when I went in there and spoke plainly about the issues, the crowd response was amazing!
The next day, I joined bikers from across Iowa at the ABATE conference. Next to these bikers, I may have looked out of place, but I felt right at home as we talked about helmet laws, jobs, healthcare, and illegal aliens. I then got to ride the new 2007 Harley Davidson Fatboy. Now, I have a Harley back home but this bike was much bigger, and I was actually worried about rolling it. Turned out to be a great time!
Saturday night, at a townhall meeting, a young lady disapproving of Senator Edwards' expensive habits, asked me how much my haircuts cost. I was thrilled to show her a card from my local barber with seven hole punches in it. Three more cuts, I told her, and I get one free! She loved the demonstration and so did the press. The AP sent it out over the wire.
But by far, the most uplifting moment of the trip came on Sunday, just after church. A number of congregants approached me and told me that in the fight for conservative values they have been looking for a David; and now they have finally found one.
So last week was very exciting. This week, I will be focused on the First in the South debate in Columbia, South Carolina. It would be great if you could watch it, and then write me back with your reactions and suggestions. The debate airs live Tuesday night at 9 PM on the FoxNews channel. My blog will have all the behind the scenes excitement in the hours leading up and regular updates during the debate. Be sure to check it out.
Speaking of the debate - I need to get back to these note cards I am working on. Wish me luck and have a great week!
Thank you so much for all your support.
