Next week, April 15th, is the deadline to turn in all petitions. Does anyone have some feedback as to which specific counties are lacking or need more work? I'm also wondering whether the Webb campaign has staffers coordinting petitions.

There's not much time left.


CDs v. Counties (Brian - 4/7/2006 8:29:31 AM)
I am not sure which specific counties need help, but I know the 9th and 6th congressional districts are usually always the most difficult to get signatures in and Webb needs help in both of them. 

This is by CD, not by County... (Lowell - 4/7/2006 9:03:42 AM)
CDs 4,5, 6, and 9 are the ones that need attention. If you live in any of those CD's, if you can collect 10, 20, or 50 signatures over the next few days, that would be awesome!  The petition form is available here and in the files section here.  Thanks.

PS  Please mail completed, notarized petitions to:

Jim Webb for U.S. Senate
1916 Wilson Blvd, Ste. 304
Arlington, VA 22201

PPS  You should be able to get petitions notarized at your bank for free.  I just did one yesterday at Wachovia.

In Blacksburg (CD-9) (Bubby - 4/7/2006 9:38:15 AM)
The response to the signature petition has been outstanding. In the neighborhoods, downtown; people are grabbing the petition. 

Many to most are not familiar with Jim Webb, but the key words, "he's a Democrat running against George Allen", seals the deal. People are livid.  "Worse than Nixon", was mentioned a few times by the older folks.

Lots of people want to know, "whats the difference between James Webb and George Allen?".  My standard response has been, "While George Allen was playing football in California, James Webb was getting his ass shot-off in Vietnam. He has a certain focus on the cost of war." 

It has been a great experience-knocking on doors and talking with folks.  Very inspiring to see your neighbors fired up and ready for change.  Something big is going on.  Get out there and check it out.
