I've already made it to 298 doors this week and will be heading out again this afternoon. The weather has been somewhat cold. I've been wearing my gloves in the mornings before it warms up a bit and then again in the evenings as it starts to cool down. I've had so many sweet people tell me, "Bless your heart for being out in this cold weather." It could have been used either way, I suppose.
If we want to overcome the DC establishment, it's going to take a lot of hard work. Grassroots is the great equalizer - I'm closing in on 7,000 doors. My goal is 10,000 doors, but I think I am on track to hit 12,000. When my legs get tired or my back starts hurting, I keep on going because I remind myself that this is not about me. This is about restoring America for our children and our grandchildren. I believe that with all my heart. This is about we the people taking back that which is rightfully ours. Our government. We will show the DC establishment that Foxx's $2 million cash on hand cannot overcome the power of we the people.
Not bad for a middle-aged woman! <laughter> I just realized yesterday that I am middle-aged. <smile> Well, I knew it, but honestly, never really thought about it much. I met the sweetest couple yesterday,
I knocked on the door and an older gentleman answered. After I told him why I was there, he got rather excited and said, "You've got to come in!" As I entered the house he yelled, "Honey! Come meet our next congressman!"

That is how most Americans feel, sir. We are tired of the spineless jellyfish do nothing Republicans.
I was laughing as I left. I had never thought of myself as middle-aged before. A few houses later, another couple told me that I looked too young to have a son graduating from college and getting married this summer. They thought I was in my 30s. I've gotten that a lot. Several older ladies told me I was too young to run for Congress, then were absolutely shocked when I told them that I'm 47.
It is an uphill battle against her two million dollars, but I feel confident that we the people will prevail. Leadership, here we come.
