Reports from the Field/Battleground Updates - The Kerry Campaign in Wisconsin

William, Scott and I are heading to Wisconsin to help Kerry win the Presidency and take this country back from the special interests. This will be our daily Blog. It is my intention to file reports on our activities every single day from 10/17/04 – 11/03/04. This will be our “Report from the Field”, if you will. Here you can find out what kind of exciting activities we are up to in Wisconsin. You can also get our take on how the campaign is fairing in this great state.

The Scott Seltzer Report

Friday - went to an Edwards rally. It was awesome. About 2000 people. Jon Bonjovi sang and introduced John Edwards. Edwards hit on all cylinders. He emphasized that no other nation would have veto prosperously the U.S. The students were happy to hear about tax credits for higher education. And of course,"Hope Is On The Way" with "A Fresh Start".

My personal favorite comment came when Edwards discussed the 3 debates. During the 2nd debate, Bush asked the moderator "Is my time up, yet?". Edward assured us all, that on Tuesday, our answer will be "Yes George. You’re all done!"

2 highlights from the afternoon door to door:

1. Knocking on a door with lost a member activist a beautiful Chocolate Labrador barked and waged his tail in the living room window. We know the person was home as the activist saw him enter the house. As I looked in the window (from the porch) I strained to focus (over 40 year old eyes) on a peculiar objection the couch. I turned to the activist and said"We're leaving now." She said "But, I haven’t talked to him, yet." (She’s very determined). I replied "I may be a gun owner but I'm not talking to someone with a rifle (with scope) leaning on the couch."

2. Talking to a fellow Catholic (who's still mad at CLintom over Monica), the subject of Abortion came up. She asked me how in good conscience I could vote Democrat. I told her that the Democratic Party does not advertise for abortion. It advocates for the right to choose. Abortion decisions should be between a woman, significant other, Doctor, and whoever she chooses to call God.
