12. I met the Gov this past Monday, and had a chance to speak to her briefly.
We talked about DeVos, and she agreed there is no lack of info to choose from to discredit him. It is a matter of timing and choosing what info to share. Like someone mentioned, she doesn't have the war chest that DeVos has, so she has to carefully time her ads, etc. so that he doesn't have time to respond. One really interesting thing she said was that she has spoken to people who actually are not aware that DeVos is a Republican! That floored me, but it just goes to show how little people know about him. That should change soon.
She told the group of volunteers to relax, that they did have a plan for the campaign, and things would get started soon.
She is really depending on the volunteers to get the word out, and really work hard to help get her re-elected. So volunteer and recruit everyone you can think of! Contribute to her campaign, if you are able. Even if it is a small sum, it all adds up.
She stressed the point that her success goes deeper than just the governorship. If she loses, that pushes Michigan that much closer to turning red (Rep. governor, legislature, Sec. of State), and that is something the Repugs would definitely like to happen before '08.
She said to look for visits from all the '08 Repug presidential wannabes between now and November.
My impression of her is a very warm, personable, intelligent, and sincere lady. I plan to work my tail off for her, and I hope many, many others do as well. I think most of the local campaign offices are open now, so check out her website, and volunteer!
I'm glad Kerry is going to be with her this Sunday. I would love to meet him!
