Never had a general instalanche before so rather than hitting the sack here is a summary of posts on my road trip with Stacy McCain. I should note the Massachusetts races were covered with McCain on his trip to Mass as we did daily road trips.

You’ve found that Scott Brown Feeling

There is absolutely no reason why we can’t win all of these seats if you give time and effort, we can’t do everything but all of us can do something!

And it goes without saying you should hit Stacy McCain’s site, just keep scrolling.

Update: And don’t miss Stacy’s latest on the Bielat/Frank race

Here is a clip after the main press conference on the 18th where Ann Marie Buerkle answers press questions

If you ask me this race is more than wide open.

I’m going to try to get to the Keith Fimian HQ in Fairfax VA first, then hit a press conference in DC at heritage and from there lunch with a pal and back toward Massachusetts.

I’ll let you know how this goes.

BTW Stacy’s wife is as delightful as he suggests and his kids are as self-reliant as he is while still being kids. Watching the 5 of them get ready for school brought me to the days of my youth.

Hughey Woodring and Jason Fitzgerald talk to me about the Tom Marino campaign and Pa in general.

The most important words said in this interview:

Me: What would you like to say to those people not only in this country but all across the country republicans and conservatives who are thinking: “It’s looking good and we can ease off a little?

Hughey Woodring: Get out and volunteer and get the word out!

Me: Is there any other way to win an election without working just right till the end?

Hughey: No!

Hughey Woodring advice about not getting complacent predates Glenn Reynolds, after all Hughey is old enough to be his blogfather

Update: Stacy McCain has an update with some good poll numbers for the district

Update 2: Here is an example of a Poll not as reliable

Anyone who believes Ann Marie Buerkle is down 12 in NY-25 likely thought that Tom Marino had no chance in Pa-10

Update 3: Instalanche, check out the links to all of my posts on the road trip here.

Had trouble finding the campaign office but lucky for me the we passed the local Sons of Italy lodge 2786

Marino HQ in Williamsport PA

and who do I run into but the candidates sister Mary Jo who directed us to the campaign HQ.

At the HQ I talked to Hughey Woodring the election chairman who had just done over 100 calls for the candidate tonight. He told me that the response was overwhelmingly favorable, even democrats who they called can’t seem to wait to vote republican this time to stop the spending and to repeal the Healthcare Bill.

Hughey Woodring at Marino HQ

This is consistent with what I’ve been hearing again and again from tea party meetings from the Sean Bielat race and all over.

If I’m Tom Marino I’m feeling pretty good about the Pa-10 race, but as Glenn Reynolds says: Don’t get Cocky.

His campaign MGR Tom Communication director Jason Fitzgerald should be here by 8:30 in a few minutes I’ll update you then.

Update : Fitzgerald hasn’t arrived yet but Stacy’s post is up and I would strongly suggest that anyone wanting to know how to run an election contact Hughey Woodring STAT! That guy knows his stuff!

Jason goes over the district with Stacy

Update 2: Talking to Mr. Fitzgerald, says the race will be won in Lycoming county which made the difference in the three way primary that Tom Won bigtime. He believes that this race came in under the radar.

Looking at the overall situation in several races

You mean to say that there are races the MSM was ignoring that might finish differently than they think, who’s been saying that about Massachusetts for a bit?

Update 3: Just talked to the county chairman Bob Brobson he says the Marino race in pa-10 and the Senate and governer’s races are looking good but we have an awful lot more work to do. He has been taking Hughey Woodring advice.

Camillus NY 10:30 A.M. Oct 18, 2010 (via Ithaca NY 1:32 p.m. at the house of Legal Insurrection)

Stacy & I hit the Ann Marie Buerkle Press conference in front of a small mall in Camillus NY today

Stacy Takes Notes

The Press was there to hear what she had to say:

the press sets up for the conference

Buerkle bluntly stated that congressman Maffei was misrepresenting the fact.

Buerkle addresses the press

The idea is he is desperate to change the subject from his own voting record. This would not be a surprise as democrats in trouble have been running from their votes and the voters all over the country this year.

As for the “interesting” poll that shows her down, she pointed out bluntly that Maffei has not released polls all year, considering that she has been neck and neck for a while the idea that he suddenly has a 12 point lead is…”interesting“. Then again this is the same polling service that padded Rick Lazlio’s by 19 points and was 38 points off on Paladino in the primary.

I know its near Halloween, but if Maffei & the Mainstream Media are going to give out Whoppers…

Much better Whoppers than the MSM or Maffei's campaign are delivering this Halloween

…I suggest these instead.

I will have video uploaded as soon as I’m able, meanwhile next stop Pa-10!

Update: Stacy’s video uploaded faster than mine, here is his take at the blog and his spectator piece on it.

At the press conference, Buerkle introduced one of her tenants – a hairstyling salon owner named Andre – and said his situation exemplifies the economic problems of the 25th District that she hopes to address in Congress. “Andre represents one of those hard-working Americans who takes a risk. He spends days in his salon working hard to be successful. And Andre and all the other small businesses in upstate New York . . . need Washington to get out of the way.”

Meanwhile I’ve managed to get a quick video of people reacting before the press conference up:

The grass roots are very green here and will likely grow to a bumper crop come Nov 2nd.

Update 2: Here is Ann Marie Buerkle at the press conference:
