Well, the event last night went very well! Rev. Nelson is a terrific speaker, and everyone was impressed. He's smart, funny, a pastor, and a veteran. He even got his undergraduate degree in Speech and Theatre, so I know he's got to be alright. I now have a Nelson for Congress sticker on my car and a sign in my yard. The best news of the night came from campaign manager Jason Harvey. I cornered him toward the end of the festivities and asked him when the Reverend was going to get a blog already?! He told me that it had gone up that day and should be fully functioning by today. I checked it out. It's still very sketchy, but I left the first comment and felt very proud. He's got a long way to go until he's taking advantage of the blogosphere like Kingston, but it's a start. I have a link to Nelson's website on the right, and you can access the blog from there. Rev. Jim put forth a terrific idea last night. He wants to win the primary. Granted, he's running unopposed, but he means that he wants to get more votes in our primary than Kingston gets in his. I think we can do it if we start campaiging hard and campaigning smart.
