95. Nope. In my Republican state, what counts for federal elections
is money. That's how Dean raised $40M, if you recall.

Activism is more helpful here in Repub land on the state and local levels.

But I don't have much time for extracurricular activities. I contribute $$$ instead. And put signs in my yard. And speak up when Repubs say stupid things (I'm surrounded by Repubs). And I make it a point always to vote.

Having said that, I did attend my first Democratic political meeting last month. I was going to get more involved. But that's that. I won't be doing that now. Although I certainly will pay attention to the local Dems views, and will probably vote on issues in their favor. The third party locally here tends to be Libertarian, although there are a few Green Party candidates at the local level.

What I may do is join specific campaigns, rather than party activism. But not necessarily a Dem. candidate.
