And the winner is: Daybreak

We raised over $500 for Daybreak. Ticket 551435 was drawn for the huge Obama poster. If you don’t show up, Zak Gillman of Patterson Park has the alternate ticket.


Mike Robinette claims he has the ticket- sorry Zak.

I think what bothers me more than losing, was that 22,839 people didn’t bother to vote at all. Congratulations to Charles Sanders for such a strong showing.

We’ll find out if Jane Mitakides can win in November.

The people in OH-40 missed out on a great candidate in Vic Harris.

Thank you to all that helped out.

I’m looking forward to President Obama in November.

Esrati in 2010? One things for sure, a lot more people will be reading this site for the next 2 years. Welcome.
