Barbara Boxer’s “Pac for a Change” contest ends in three days. Looking at the percentages and reported votes, more than 1,400 people have voted for me. Thank you. Considering that there are 1783 people on my mailing list, this has been an impressive rally so far. Doubling this number to beat Bob Casey in three days will be difficult, but it is worth the effort. So please vote if you haven’t, and continue to spread the word to your friends and associates.
I previously wrote regarding the funds other PFAC leaders had raised. It is also important to see how well I have done against the other Senate candidates compared to their populations. If you consider their Democratic base size (without turnout) in their respective states, it is even more impressive.
|Candidate||PFAC %||Population||% Kerry 2004||# Kerry 2004|
|Bob Casey (PA)||20%||12.2M||51%||6.2M|
|Claire McCaskill (MO)||16%||5.6M||46%||2.6M|
|Sherrod Brown (OH)||15%||11.3M||49%||5.5M|
|Barbara Ann Radnofsky (TX)||12%||20.8M||38%||7.9M|
|Pete Ashdown (UT)||10%||2.2M||26%||0.6M|
If you weight the vote response by population, I’m the clear winner. If you weigh it by people voting for Kerry in 2004, I’m supreme monarch and galactic poobah. Unfortunately, not much of what happens to western Democrats is fair and complaining about it doesn’t do much. Outside support and recognition are key to this race, but persistence is what will make the difference.
Thank you again for your continued efforts and encouragement.
Update:The latest total is 32,000 votes. So that makes 3,200.
