NY23: Hanging with Jeremy and Tony; Can You Volunteer for Hoffman Campaign?

Just in case anyone didn't see the video I shot Friday in the Plattsburgh, N.Y., office of the Doug Hoffman campaign, I've now posted it in the Hot Air Greenroom. And here's a photo of Hoffman volunteers Jeremy Kain and Tony Maglione chilling out after Friday's meeting:

These two guys are buddies from Plattsburgh -- they know each other from attending St. Peter's Church -- and when Tony held a Hoffman fund-raiser at his house in September, Jeremy was one of the guys he invited. So now these two average citizens are at Ground Zero in a campaign of national significance.

When I arrived at the Hoffman headquarters in Saranac Lake earlier Friday, I was frankly surprised that the office wasn't swarming with College Republican volunteers and Tea Party activists from across the country. There were about a half-dozen people in the office. Phones were ringing off the hook, people were walking in to ask where they could get yard signs, and there was an obvious need for more volunteers to help out with the campaign.

The Hoffman campaign is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people to get involved in an election that could make a huge national impact. Maybe you're a college student. Maybe you're a retiree. Maybe you're just an ordinary working American who's tired of watching the GOP Establishment run roughshod over the conservative grassroots.

The message is simple: The Hoffman campaign needs you. If you can take a few days off work to go help out in NY23, they'll find something for you to do -- answering phones, distributing yard signs, canvassing precincts, whatever. Just contact the Hoffman campaign and tell them you want to come help. Here's that video one more time:
