I had the pleasure of welcoming a room full of political tourists to Watertown tonight.
They were with the Susan B. Anthony List, a group of pro-lifers in town to help with the candidacy of Doug Hoffman for Congress. Former US Rep. Marilyn Musgrave was there and spoke about the need to work diligently in the coming days handing out literature and waving signs near polling places.
Its a fervent group, happy over the withdrawl of Diedre Scozzafava from the race, but realizing their goal of a more conservative country hinges on winning Tuesday.
Like with any group there is varying degrees of true believers.....but most seemed like your neighbors just trying to make a difference and preserve an America they love. Hard to argue with that.
The common theme among the varied groups supporting Hoffman is not abortion, gay marriage, or even card check.
The issue is fiscal restraint and deficits. The notion that we are now talking about trillions of dollars like it was nothing. These folks realize that fiscal sanity is what will ensure life as we know it.
I was glad I went. Wonder what hotel ACORN is staying at?
