GOTV. Up until about 2 years ago, I would have thought it was something to do with television. For those of you how are regular readers, you know that GOTV means 'get out the vote'. This is one of the most important aspects of any campaign. Campaign staffs work for months to identify their 'pluses'--those voters who are going to vote for their candidate. Now, in the last 24+ hours, the staffs have to work doubly hard to turn those people out and do everything they can to make the 'minuses'--those who are going to vote for your opponent--stay home. I've seen rain dances and prayers for rain. I've seen prayers for sunshine and coordinated busing to polling places.
The bottom line is this. We need to do everything we can to turn Illinois Bush Red. If that happens, we will have a huge shot at picking up a couple seats in the State House and keeping Peter Fitzgerald's seat in Republican Hands.
Bottom line, is to get out and vote.
Who knows, maybe I'll be praying for rain tomorrow in DeKalb...
