Last week I personally canvassed much of Beaver, Emery and Carbon counties. Many other volunteers have been working to do the same in Salt Lake, Cache, Davis, Utah, and Washington counties. It has been energizing to meet so many good people going door to door and hear their concerns that seem to usually be swept under the rug by government.
Chris Vanocur conducted an informal debate last Wednesday which was broadcast this Sunday on his show, “On the Record”. If you missed it, here is an online recording. When your entire life seems to be leading up to a single day in November, all the months seem to blend into November. Pardon the gaff.
On the other hand, when you don’t know the Senate Banking Committee are who reported shipments of anthrax and botulism to Iraq in the 80’s, and you can remember your words against immigration amnesty in 1984, but not why Iraq was taken off the list of terrorist nations in 1982, I suppose mixing up a month is much more forgivable.
KUTV will be conducting a live debate at their studios on Main Street between 2nd and 3rd South at 6:30 PM on Tuesday. It will be conducted outside weather permitting. Arrive by 6:00 PM and bring warm clothing and your “Ashdown for Senate” t-shirts!
Finally, if you can bear tunes getting stuck in your head, here is the campaign jingle being run as a 30 second commercial spot. If you really like it, you can join my daughter Madeleine by making it your ringtone.
