Kissell Campaign Welcomes Ambassador Joe Wilson to Charlotte

There is exciting news coming out of Charlotte for the Kissell campaign. Young Professionals for Kissell with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Congressman John Spratt (D-SC) will be hosting Ambassador Joe Wilson at a fundraising event in Charlotte on September 22, 2007. Ambassador Wilson is a symbol to many of us of the courage it takes to tell the truth and stand for what is right regardless of the cost.

DCCC: Kissell, Kissell He's Our Man!

Put a fork in Robin Hayes. He's done.

On a conference call with supporters and 8th District Dem party officials, Rep, Chris Van Hollen committed DCCC support to Larry Kissell and according to pollster Marc Silverman of Anzalone Liszt:

Hayes is facing an electorate that is as dangerous to his political career as it was in 2006, if not worse.

Got that fork ready?

Roll Call Paying Attention to Larry Kissell

Who here remembers the 2006 election cycle? Remember how we did everything humanly possible to get press attention for Larry Kissell? The campaign worked their hearts out, volunteers worked their hearts out and those of us on the web wrote our poor little fingers to the bone and all the corporate media could talk about was the damned goat.

Enter Roll Call.

In December 2006 they had this to say:

Don't Count on DCCC to help Larry Kissell

A few days ago, Larry Kissell wrote a diary on DailyKos titled No Confidence in Politics as Usual. Tucked away in that diary was this little morsel:

The Washington folks seemed shocked that we recently polled and it showed my opponent is in big trouble and the district agrees with me that we've had enough.

That's right. There's a poll. Unfortunately, I can't get my hands on it, but what I've heard so far is that Robin Hayes is in more trouble than he's ever been in and Larry Kissell hasn't lost momentum. From what I hear - and I promise to produce the poll if it is ever released - on the uninformed poll question, the two candidates (Kissell v. Hayes) are neck and neck.

Rep. Artur Davis Endorses Larry Kissell for Congress in '08

Congressman Artur Davis has announced his endorsement of Larry Kissell in North Carolina's 8th Congressional District.

After spending time with Larry Kissell and the people of North Carolina the weekend of March 23rd, the top recruiter for the ’08 congressional campaign cycle appreciated why Kissell came within 400 votes of becoming the next congressman for North Carolina’s 8th District.

“When you experience the enthusiasm that still exists for this humble and capable man,” said U.S. Representative Artur Davis,” you feel even more positive about what he accomplished in 2006 and what he will achieve in 2008.”

“Larry Kissell will be the next congressman for North Carolina's 8th District,” Davis said.

I had the pleasure of meeting Congressman Davis when he visited Charlotte last year to offer support for Larry and enjoyed seeing him again this past weekend. This is what I had to say when Rep. Davis and Rep. Watt both rallied a crowd of Kissell supporters last year.

Kissell Slide Show Fun

I'm cross-posting this from The Southern Dem. I am not putting it on the front page until I'm sure everyone can view it. It is a Quicktime movie and I posted it on the blog space that my iMac account gives me for free. Maybe I'll just host videos there if this works. I wish Quicktime had a bigger screen. Features that work on my mac are icky in Quicktime. Below is the post:


This is my first attempt at a video/slide show with my new software. Enjoy! Click on the picture and it will take you to the page where I saved the slide show. I'm not ready for YouTube Primetime, yet. Thanks for watching and any feedback would be helpful. I recognize a lot of issues, but don't yet know how to fix them. I'm working on it, though.
