Satuday Oct 4th, 8am, walk starts at 8:30.

Help get out the vote!

All those who walk, get a free picnic lunch paid for by the Nevada Republicans.

Walk start locations are at the Pecos and Pebble offices of McCain/Palin HQ and the Saraha and Durango Republican State Hq.

Thanks for the NRA post.

Very helpful.


THe McCain/Palin walk went really well.

About 30 people showed up, JPA I walked an East Las Vegas distist together. Targeting Independents and Soft Republicans (Registered, but never vote) we knocked on 40 or so doors in 3 hours. We had a great response overal and ony two really unhappy folks, so it was a very good day.

Nevada Republican HQ will have a walk every weekend until election day, so if you want to volunteer, now is the time.

It's not too late, there's still 4 more weekends to go before the election. I know we only got through 1 folder of about 60 houses just because of how they were all scattered around the few blocks we were working.

I was kinda scared people were gonna be nasty, slamming doors, siccing dogs on us, waving baseball bats at us, etc. I'd never done anything like this, so I pretty much let Jim take the lead. For the most part people either didn't answer the door or weren't home, but those who did were fairly supportive, some were open to listening and one woman even told us that McCain is too socialist for her but he's better than Obama, so he's got her vote! We weren't out for a hard sell, we were there more to gather information on where people stand. This is also the contentious Porter/Titus area, but most of the support we heard was for Porter rather than Titus. Very encouraging.

Anyway, there really wasn't much in the way of food. No bbq, no spread...just a couple big trays of fried chicken from Vons and some prepackaged sides and cookies. Plenty of water and pop though, which is much appreciated. I'm kinda disappointed in the lack of organization in the GOP here in Clark county though. The only way I heard of this was through a PM from Jim. I went to get more info on the Clark county GOP web site, on the Nevada GOP web site and the national GOP web site in their "events by state" listing and there was NOTHING! I don't know about other people, but I don't tend to show up for events/activities I don't know about. As I was leaving the office, I was kinda surprised nobody tried to stop me and ask for more help another day. I got a "thanks for your help" and the Vice Chair gave me his card. These are the things the Dems have been doing for years, trying to motivate and engage volunteers and voters and it seems the Republicans are failing.

JPA,

Check your PMs.

Dylan, from the RNC, is trying to find the walk books from Saturday.
