GOP is telling Republican voters to ask for Democratic ballot

Republicans for Ferris Launched
A Note from the New Chair of Republicans for Ferris, Robert L. Brown

"As a long time Republican, I am asking you to vote for Barbara Anne Ferris, Democrat for Congress on Tuesday, May 2, 2006. When you go to the polls on May 2, 2006, our Primary Election Day, you will automatically be given a Republican Ballot - refuse it and ask for a Democrat Ballot.

Barbara Anne's name will only appear on the Democratic Ballot, so please ask for a Democratic Ballot and vote for her.

Barbara Anne Ferris brings experienced leadership with a clear vision for the future of our area. Barbara Annes accomplishments on Capitol Hill and in over 100 countries around the world fostering economic development are what we need. She is our "Gateway to the World" and has a proven track record when it comes to creating jobs and building economies. Please join me, as a long time Republican, and vote for Barbara Anne Ferris on Tuesday, May 2, 2006."

Robert L. Brown, Esquire, Former Director, US Immigration and Naturalization Service

This is Kucinich's district and he is facing a stealth candidate in the Democratic primary, Barbara Anne Ferris. Ferris has been endorsed by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
