Special Thanks to our Victory 08 Team

November 5, 2008

NC05 wishes that the circumstances were better this morning than they were last night. We know that you all worked very hard to make the turnout high and the election strong. In some counties, republicans won strong and turned out in amazing numbers. We experienced upsets in Alleghany, Surry, and Yadkin. We had narrow misses in Alexander and Ashe. It appears that Congresswoman Foxx actually increased her margin of victory in most counties over 2006 and some over 2004. We believe this is not only a testament to her hard work and conservative values, but also to the many of you who made phone calls, placed signs, sent emails. The 72 Hour Plan workedin our district, and it is all because of you. Special thanks to Thomas Coley and Kevin Turner who organized volunteers and lead the campaigns to GOTV. Without these fellas, many of our local parties would have been overwhelmed. While we do not have all the numbers it looks like even Pat McCrory won in all of our counties save one. In a difficult election year, the volunteers of the fifth district played well. Congratulations to Sarah Stevens, Darrell McCormick, Bill McGee, and Dale Folwell. We hope we see Dan Soucek back in 2010. Mark Hollo’s narrow loss is hard to swallow, and we congratulate him on a strong campaign. Dan Barrett, our esteemed leader fought an uphill battle, and he is to be commended.

As we move forward, North Carolina will no doubt see “change” as the nation does. The change we fear will not be for the better. As Republicans, we must continue to fight for conservative principles both morally and fiscally. County parties must begin to work more together and help each other lead. Our message needs to reach those of our younger generation, and education through technology is our only hope. We have a gap to bridge and a message to re-tune, but we will return. Municipal elections are only a year away, and theirs no time like the present.

Special Request to Make “Keep Your Money” Phone Calls Tonight

October 29, 2008

Several months ago, Senator Obama broke his own promise to the American people to participate in public financing alongside John McCain. Tonight, Senator Obama will use the money he has raised from breaking that promise to air a 30 minute informercial.

We have no doubt his words will be eloquent, but we do not believe he will tell you the truth. His teleprompter will say that he will cut taxes for 95% of Americans, but the unscripted truth is that he will take and redistribute your hard earned money (i.e. “spread the wealth around”).

To spread the truth during this 30 minute commercial, we are asking everyone to make “keep your money” calls to voters. Our goal is to make thousands of phone calls during that the thirty minute time period so that we can deliver the truth about Obama’s plans to “spread the wealth around.”

Please join us in this effort. You can help in one of two ways:

Go volunteer at your Local Victory Office
Use our Voter2Voter Phone Bank to make calls from home

We only have 7 days left to stop Senator Obama from spreading the wealth around. Take action today!

Watauga Victory Volunteer Meets Palin

October 29, 2008

Chris Wright second from left holds a "Country First" sign a the Sarah Palin event in Asheville last Sunday.

Watauga County Volunteer Chris Wright has been making calls for months now at the Boone Victory 2008 office.  Coordinator Kevin Turner says he’s been their pretty much non-stop.  So much so, that NCGOP chose Chris to meet VP candidate Gov. Sarah Palin on Sunday in Asheville.  Suffering from some arm injuries, Wright was undeterred.  Even though Gov. Palin was delayed several hours the crowd and Wright were ecstatic to meet her. “What a thrill”, he said. “Hard work really does pay off.”
