Yesterday I received an email from a grassroots political colleague who read the post "Hanger wants to purge GOP if he wins." This hard-working attorney took a moment out of her day to share some words of encouragement and remind me of Ronald Reagan's race for governor of California. She wrote:
It sounds like Fritz [News Leader editor, "What a race"] hasn't a clue as to who the hard-working, grass-roots Republicans really are. One thing for sure, they are not "shrill," as he claims, just because they are exercising their rights to elect the candidate of their choice.And with those words we move into the final days of this campaign working non-stop for Scott Sayre.
One might argue, rather, that an incumbent office holder who threatens other Republicans is the one who is shrill. When President Reagan first ran for office for Governor of California, his supporters were called extremists. The voters saw through that kind of intimidation and Reagan was elected overwhelmingly against a very popular Democrat incumbent. So, keep your spirits high--you're in good company."
Ya gotta have friends ... and I'm blessed by the friends I have.
