Here are some shots from the GOP Grass roots conference that I didn’t get a chance to get up this weekend.

I’ve already started my CPAC interview and will be uploading shortly.

My latest examiner piece talks about the most significant race of yesterday, it was NOT in Delaware:

Even so the state Republican party didn’t manage to run a candidate to oppose Martha Coakley for Attorney General this year, but a man named James McKenna decided to get involved, he visited tea party after tea party all over the state and launched a sticker campaign to get on the ballot for November.

Sticker campaigns are notoriously tough, A republican campaign in Massachusetts even doubly so.

Today less than an hour ago I was awakened by an excited call from a friend involved in the tea party. The first words out of the phone:

“Guess who is going to be on the ballot against Martha Coakley in November?”

Christine O’Donnell’s win is big, don’t get me wrong, but it was a symptom of the type of thing that put Jim McKenna on the November ballot in Massachusetts. Tea Party activists in small groups in city after city working hard to make a difference. Multiply this by the cities and towns throughout the state and country and you have what is coming down the pike.

This is the story that the media refuses to believe. They will believe it Nov 3rd.

Update: C’Mon Smitty you tweeted the AP story on it and not mine? Mea culpa on that, it was a different retweet, I take it back.

State Rep Candidate Ray Igou (9th Essex) at the Reading Tea Party 9/7/2010

he is an airline pilot by trade and another great example of a regular guy who decided to step up to make a difference. He not only talks sense, I look forward to seeing him at the statehouse.

This is why we will win and continue to win, we are inspiring not people looking for a career but people with lives and careers to step forward to lead. This guy has class and sense.
