Hate to do it but time for a post primary Bleg: Update: Thank you! 103%

Well our NH pri­mary cov­er­age has finally con­cluded with the excep­tion of an Under the Fedora wrap-​up and this week’s radio show.

I’ve cov­ered over 600 miles in my 99 Buick been at events fea­tur­ing Gin­grich, Paul, San­to­rum, Buddy Roe­mer the Hunts­man girls and more.

I’ve Inter­viewed Michael Steele, Joe and Mika, Sen­a­tor Rand Paul and asked ques­tions of Rick San­to­rum and Newt Gin­grich and numer­ous sup­port­ers of many can­di­dates, includ­ing democ­rats and occupiers.

As you might guess this has been an expen­sive week for me. If you found my cov­er­age worth­while, I hope you will be recep­tive to the fol­low­ing bleg:

1. I need a new portable hard drive fig­ure around $70-$100

2. I have 6 tanks of gas to pay for at say $40 each for $240

3. CPAC is com­ing, I have a place to stay and I will likely be cre­den­tialed so I won’t need admis­sion but I will need air fare, food, taxi and sub­way money say $250.

So I’m hop­ing to raise about $600 to $700 by say Jan­u­ary 20th to meet said expenses.

You can do a sin­gle tip jar hit, you can do a sub­scrip­tion and I’ll of course accept Gold (but not col­lectible sov­er­eigns because I won’t have the heart to sell them for their value.)

I was going to sug­gest if the num­bers could go high enough I would do SC or Fla but not only are there some local events I should con­sider cov­er­ing, but it would be nice to kick in toward the prop­erty tax and mort­gage and oil bills that might take pri­or­ity, how­ever if the num­bers get high enough and my read­er­ship insists I’ll see what I can do

Any help you can give will be most appre­ci­ated. If you can’t, times are tough I understand.

Update: Thanks to Sue from Florida and Ken­neth for cov­er­ing the first 6%. $655 to go.

Update 2: Thanks to Bob in Mary­land $645 to go, Andrea in SC says If I go there to cover the pri­mary I have a place to stay, that’s kinda short notice and there is a big GOP event around the same time but if say an Extra grand comes in I might be able to swing it.

Update 3: Thanks to S. from near Boston and Bill from Rhode Island $595 to go.

Update 4: Thanks to Tom from NH $545 to go

Update 5: thanks char­lie and Jeff $485 to go

Update 6: Thanks Steve $435 left

Update 7: Thanks to Bob in Cal­i­for­nia and and Mike in Vir­ginia. $390 to go

It’s wor­thy to note that Mike as a Raven’s fans has kicked in $25 and chal­lenged patri­ots fans to match it. C’mon guys show him what you’ve got!

Update 8: Thanks to Mike in NH for not only get­ting me over the 50% hump but for help­ing out my friend Zilla in her time of need. left to cover and also thanks to Joel $330 left

Final update Ann in NY fin­ishes me off and we are all set for CPAC at 103% of the goal. I’ll be pur­chas­ing my CPAC tick­ets today or tomor­row. Thanks to every­body who kicked in and made the trip pos­si­ble. God will­ing next year the show etc will be doing well enough that I won’t have to put the hat out there.

Well our NH primary coverage has finally concluded with the exception of an Under the Fedora wrap-up and this week’s radio show.

I’ve covered over 600 miles in my 99 Buick been at events featuring Gingrich, Paul, Santorum, Buddy Roemer the Huntsman girls and more.

I’ve Interviewed Michael Steele, Joe and Mika, Senator Rand Paul and asked questions of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and numerous supporters of many candidates, including democrats and occupiers.

As you might guess this has been an expensive week for me. If you found my coverage worthwhile, I hope you will be receptive to the following bleg:

1. I need a new portable hard drive figure around $70-$100

2. I have 6 tanks of gas to pay for at say $40 each for $240

3. CPAC is coming, I have a place to stay and I will likely be credentialed so I won’t need admission but I will need air fare, food, taxi and subway money say $250.

So I’m hoping to raise about $600 to $700 by say January 20th to meet said expenses.

You can do a single tip jar hit, you can do a subscription and I’ll of course accept Gold (but not collectible sovereigns because I won’t have the heart to sell them for their value.)

I was going to suggest if the numbers could go high enough I would do SC or Fla but not only are there some local events I should consider covering, but it would be nice to kick in toward the property tax and mortgage and oil bills that might take priority, however if the numbers get high enough and my readership insists I’ll see what I can do

Any help you can give will be most appreciated. If you can’t, times are tough I understand.

Update: Thanks to Sue from Florida and Kenneth for covering the first 6%. $655 to go.

Update 2: Thanks to Bob in Maryland $645 to go, Andrea in SC says If I go there to cover the primary I have a place to stay, that’s kinda short notice and there is a big GOP event around the same time but if say an Extra grand comes in I might be able to swing it.

Thanks to everybody who kicked in and made the trip possible. God willing next year the show etc will be doing well enough that I won’t have to put the hat out there.
