9:29 p.m. Very jealous of Ace’s air card right now

9:40 p.m. Went through the crowd and talked to Joe Malone. He believes there will be no problem getting national GOP money to support local candidates for statewide office. He didn’t pad the answer.

10:04 p.m. I’m still shocked it was only 5 pts.

10:39 p.m. He just said his daughters are both available, a bunch of heads at NOW just blew up.

10:43 p.m. Thanked John McCain (also was gracious to Kerry, and the President) should thank the Other McCain too

10:46 p.m. “When they’re in trouble in Massachusetts, they’re in trouble everywhere.” Democrats should be afraid very afraid.
