Don't know if there is anything I can do in my end of the world, however I wish you good luck and best wishes in your quest!

A bit of thread necromancy here but I was looking around and wanted an update.

So how is the campaign going?

Quick Update:   

1.  I have visited over 4600 doors in my district, and more on on the schedule
2.  I have been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business
3.  Yard signs are going up everywhere
4.  I have a fundraiser next week, sponsored by Congressman Mike Coffman

Lots of other fun stuff is on the way!   


Thanks for asking Coil.

November 2nd.   I suspect you can Google to find the total vote tallies.   

Thanks all, for the interest in this race.   I will refrain from politicing on these forums.  But, I am doing something I told myself I would be doing with my life since I was 18...oh so many years ago!   It is nice to share what is going on with my friends here on the forums.

Hey All,

Just to update.  Despite great effort, wonderful volunteers, and words of encouragement from all over our efforts came up short of victory. 

I was humbled by the well wishes received during the campaign from the folks that I consider friends, and virtual neighbors. 

We have learned a lot, and now we begin the process of filling in the calendar between now and 2012.  This has been a huge learning experience, and is a dream I have had for years, to make whatever corner of the world I can a better place.

Tomorrow, I lock myself in the basement with a case of Mtn. Dew and get caught up on all the painting projects I have been putting off!

I applaud you - not only for the effort to make a difference but also for the courage to put yourself out on that proverbial limb

It takes a lot to do what you did. Sorry to hear the results. Good luck in all future endeavors.

Got get'em!!  I wish you the best.  I'll echo Coil's stern gaze at Dave, even if I agree with him.  We can discuss politics at your house Dave, if I have whisky in my coffee.

Let's all try to keep it dice and pewter gang.

I second anything that involves whiskey and Dave's house.
