The offices of the Clinton County Democratic Party here in Plattsburgh -- Owens' hometown -- were busy this afternoon, as young Democratic staffers were ready to begin a weekend of door-to-door canvassing operations. Staffers were preparing to distribute stacks of door-hanger GOTV cards that tout President Obama's endorsement of Owens, telling voters: "Those standing in the way of Change want you to say home on Tuesday -- don't let them win." . . .Please read the whole thing. I've got to run over to Hoffman's local campaign office to meet with sources and then make the trip to Lake Placid, so I'll be busy for a few hours. Expect updates here from Jimmie Bise, and also keep an eye out for 73Wire's Campaign Trail -- those guys are breaking exclusive after exclusive up here.
Memeorandum also has news from the Politico, WSYR-TV, And So it Goes in Shreveport, Weekly Standard, Left Coast Rebel and Conservatives4Palin.com.
Thanks to all those readers who have contributed to the Shoe Leather Fund to make this trip possible. If you could give a little extra, that would be nice. Coming through Tupper Lake about 1 a.m. this morning, I had a low-speed encounter with a deer crossing the road. (Speed limit in Tupper Lake is 40 mph and, for once, I was obeying the speed limit, which is bad luck.)
Frightening for me, but rather more unfortunate for the deer -- and it's a rental car. Although the damage was minor and superficial, you know how difficult (and potentially expensive) such things can be.
