RoadTrip 6:39 AM Jamesville NY

I’m sit­ting at the Lonely Conservative’s Kitchen Table as her son gets ready for school hold­ing a union mailer hit­ting Ann Marie Buerkle:

A lot of Union Pen­sion money has gone down the drain try­ing to keep Democ­rats afloat and I don’t think high-​speed rail is going to be a win­ner but at least is at least one argu­ment that doesn’t involve ladyparts.

Yes­ter­day I con­tin­ued my drive through New York hit­ting Kinder­hook Birth­place of 8th Pres­i­dent Mar­vin Van Buren

and of Con­gress­man Chris Gib­son of the 19th district

Gib­son is of those Fresh­man 2010 repub­li­cans defend­ing a seat in a dis­trict where reg­is­tra­tion is within two points, of course his con­gres­sional office is totally sep­a­rate from the polit­i­cal oper­a­tion by law

From the 19th dis­trict I headed North

to the his­toric area of Saratoga

and the local office of Matt Doheny

who has taken up the man­tle of Doug Hoffman.

It was the nicest build­ing I’ve ever seen for a cam­paign office but unfor­tu­nately there was nobody there for me:

My lap­top power was almost out, so I sat down on the floor in the foyer charg­ing my lap­top and fin­ish­ing up my under the fedora col­umn. Avail­able here here, and here

From there I spent 2 hours head­ing west to crash at the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive place (shades of 2010).

Today I’ll be hit­ting a forum in Clay Town­ship where Ann Marie Buerkle is in a rematch with Dan Maffei.

I think it is one of the most inter­est­ing races in the coun­try in the sense that you have the Demo­c­rat who was elected in the Obama wave of 2008 and a Repub­li­can elected in the Big Red wave of 2010.

With Mitt Rom­ney clearly win­ning the pres­i­dency (MSNBC & Intrade not with­stand­ing), the ques­tion that is left is: Is the back­lash against Obama or against the GOP?

Two years ago I was in this same dis­trict when the local papers claimed Buerkle was down 11 before win­ning, She is in much bet­ter shape this time around, I’m sure a friendly Fedora won’t hurt.

That’s my Scott Brown sign I put out there, it’s already got­ten some odd looks here in NY. I’ll explain why I trans­planted it later today.

From that event, it’s back east, hit­ting the St. Kateri Tekak­witha shine and I’ll give another go to some other cam­paign loca­tions high­tail­ing it back to Fitchburg.

Remem­ber this cov­er­age is made pos­si­ble by you. If you’d like to help pay for this trip and move that ther­mome­ter feel free to hit DaTip­Jar below and keep the gas in the car a few meals and the car rental bill.

Yesterday I continued my drive through New York hitting Kinderhook Birthplace of 8th President Marvin Van Buren

and of Congressman Chris Gibson of the 19th district

Gibson is of those Freshman 2010 republicans defending a seat in a district where registration is within two points, of course his congressional office is totally separate from the political operation by law

From the 19th district I headed North

to the historic area of Saratoga

and the local office of Matt Doheny

who has taken up the mantle of Doug Hoffman.

It was the nicest building I’ve ever seen for a campaign office but unfortunately there was nobody there for me:

My laptop power was almost out, so I sat down on the floor in the foyer charging my laptop and finishing up my under the fedora column. Available here here, and here

From there I spent 2 hours heading west to crash at the Lonely Conservative place (shades of 2010).

Today I’ll be hitting a forum in Clay Township where Ann Marie Buerkle is in a rematch with Dan Maffei.

I think it is one of the most interesting races in the country in the sense that you have the Democrat who was elected in the Obama wave of 2008 and a Republican elected in the Big Red wave of 2010.

With Mitt Romney clearly winning the presidency (MSNBC & Intrade not withstanding), the question that is left is: Is the backlash against Obama or against the GOP?
