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.

Scott's Report - Thus Far...

Scott's Report - Thus Far...Monday - arrived approx. 11:30 a.m. Checked in and went to my first planning meeting. Met Russ Clemens, Staff from Buffalo. Discussed the week's agenda with him and 2 (lost time) members. Left @1:15 to do lit drops. Went to "coordinated hq" for new assignment. Instructed to do lit drop for Brad Pfaff (State Senate) in the suburbs. After 6:00 p.m.did house calls till about 9:00. Tuesday - 10;00 a.m. more lit drop all day. 5:00 p.m.more house calls.Wednesday - more lit drop but for Pfaff only. This isa big race because of the Tax Payer Bill of Rights (TABOR) issue. This issue is much like the Paycheck Deception issue in California. Public employees atall levels could be greatly (negatively) impacted. I debated a staunch republican on the sidewalk in front of an undecided. The repub. was a retired hospital administrator. The biggest debate was health care. He bragged how someone he knew in England had to wait 5 weeks for a hip transplant. I told him it will be atotal of 6 weeks I have to wait to get the lump removed from from right thumb. I then asked about the 44 million who do not have and can not afford healthcare. He said no one can be refused treatment. I asked who pays the bill? He said "we do". I calmly said "Exactly". SO if we're paying now why not paythat money in in form of taxes to cover people?". Arrogantly, he said "and you'd trust the government torun it?" I answered "Not this administration!" The undecided man said "You got that right!" The republican went back into his house; with no further comment.

P.M. voter ID/housecall. Only thrown off 1 doorstep. Thursday - finished lit drop from Tuesday and got new assignment (neighborhood). 3:00 to 5:30 labor voter ID. 6:45-10:00 stategy meeting for Edwards visit.
