Here's a good example of Bill Gillespie's effect when he talks to people:
I'll tell you right up front, we walked away from the conversation with nothing but positive things to say about him. He impressed us as genuine, sincere and concerned about the future of this district as well as the country. We spoke briefly about policies and I was impressed. Bill seemed to be very pragmatic and a real progressive. He understood the financial crisis this country is in, and approached the bailout with the skepticism that we all approached it with. It's a difficult decision for any lawmaker. I was convinced, however, that he had the best interest of the American people, and our district in mind.
All you people in safe Atlanta metro districts or from out of state, don't forget who Bill's running against:
George Bush did not do this alone. He had republicans carrying his water in the House and Senate. There is no bigger offender than Jack Kingston.And here's why it's an uphill fight worth fighting:
So, stop by Bill's site and help out any way you can. If you can donate, please do. He's up against a candidate that is heavily entrenched. Along with that entrenchment comes lobbyists and special interest groups. Anything you can give will definitely help. If you can't contribute, then get involved some other way. As always though, keep talking to your friends and neighbors. This is our chance for real change. Don't let it slip away. Don't wake up on November 5, as say coulda, shoulda, woulda.And remember, cable TV buys in GA-01 are among the cheapest in the country. Bill's busily fundraising, but you can help up the ante so he can flood cable with ads. The only thing Bill really needs to win is name recognition, and that would do it. You can help.
