GOTV

I dropped by the Mejias HQ this morning, and things are buzzing. They have over a dozen people doing phones and lit counts. They didn't need any help on the phones! The polls are within one point, which is remarkable against an opponent (Pete King) who generally wins by a 2 or 3 to 1 margin. Mejias has taken in more money this cycle than King. And since it's so close, get-out-the-vote efforts will be key tomorrow. King has no apparent ground support. He has a campaign office that's nothing but a closed storefront on Rt. 109.

I was hoping against hope when we started this thing, but Mejias has a real chance of winning this. I'll be out at 5 AM tomorrow, putting up signs and handing out lit 100 feet from the polls. This is the first time I've done this much for a candidate, and I am crediting my own work for the shift in polls.

I like those racist flyers they're handing out, too.
