Final bus report

And a closing report from Young Republican Leslie Rutledge and the triumphant Huck-a-Bus riders -- that's Leslie at right in the photo with Jill Cox (left) and Yolanda Hugg:

We're back in the Rock recovering.  Yesterday was too crazy to send out emails...time was much better spent registering Huckabee supporters and poll-watching as it turned out.
 
I personally knew we were in good shape when the local folks were standing in the Huckabee barbeque line for over an hour just to be fed when they could have easily walked up to the Mitt or Brownback tents and been served immediately.  The line would have been in the neighboring state if Jennings would have cooked!
 
I believe Huckabee was the only top 4 candidate that did not bus any voters in to the Straw Poll.  We were the only bus and we couldn't vote!

We have pics from Mitt's and Brownback's "carnivals" they brought in to entice voters.
 
Sometimes, Max, genuine hard work and a great candidate just pay more than the dollar bill.
 
Will send you some more pics and commentary later if you like.
 
Need to get our bearings...and a shower...
 
Leslie Rutledge

USA Today figures Huck got the most bang for his buck in straw poll voting.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
