A very good day

I've got CSPAN on right now, and for the first time in a very long time, it's not depressing and frustrating to watch. A Democratic Senate has just been sworn in. A Democratic house has been sworn in. After receiving a huge standing ovation, and then a long roll call vote, Nancy Pelosi has just been sworn in as Speaker of the House. Now we can begin some real progress.

Today is the day where the new congresspeople bring all of their families to the chamber. After the roll call vote, they showed a row of kids, and there was a little girl who had her leg up on a seat. Well, the little boy next to her didn't like that, and repeatedly shoved her leg to get her to move. It was cute and funny.

The children are now being invited up to touch the Speaker of the House's gavel. It's nice to be able to write that with no double meaning.

Before the session started, they showed Harry Mitchell. He was looking around the chamber with this huge grin on his face. Congrats, Harry, you deserve it.

Today is a very good day.

PS: Dick Cheney is apparently still alive. Who would have guessed?

What a night

Nationally, the Democrats have taken over the House, and still might take the Senate. We might not know that for a couple of days. Or weeks.

In Arizona, Janet Napolitano won the governor race in an expected landslide.

It looks like Arizona has become the first state to vote against a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. It's pretty close, but as of now it isn't going to pass. It's still not allowed by state law, but at least it won't be part of the constitution.

We also voted to increase the minimum wage.

And against animal cruelty.

And as it stands in our US Congress races, we now have 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans, a switch of 2 seats to the Democrats.

With 98.4% of the precincts reporting (but with some absentee ballots still out there), Harry Mitchell is leading over JD Hayworth, 51.8% to 44.7%. I have some photos from the Harry Mitchell party to post, but I'm too tired right now.

Living in a purple state is so much better than living in a red state.

Voter suppression, harassing phone calls in Arizona against Harry Mitchell

I received this in my email earlier today.

Dear Friends,

We have just received word about a dirty tactic being used against our campaign.

There have been several reports that someone is barraging homes in the 5th Congressional District with repeated recorded phone calls that give the appearance of being from the Harry Mitchell campaign. These calls happen late at night and occur several times in a row. The intent is to appear as if Harry is the one repeatedly disturbing these voters.

Let me say for the record that these calls are NOT coming from us.

Although we do not know for sure, we believe these calls are part of the Hayworth campaign's efforts to suppress Democratic and Independent turnout by making people so angry about the number of recorded calls they're receiving that they simply don't vote. Furthermore, these calls make voters angry at Harry because they think he is the one responsible for them. It is a dirty trick, and we want to make sure you're aware of it.

What You Should Do if You Receive These Calls

If you receive these calls, we request that you do the following:

1. If you receive the call(s) on voice mail, don't erase it. Write a transcript of the call or share the recording with us.

2. If you pick-up the phone and receive one of these calls, don't hang-up. Take notes of what the call says, paying special attention to the disclaimer at the end
of the call.

3. If you have caller ID, take a picture of the information you receive or write it down.

4. If it is a live call, hit "*69" on your keypad to record the source.

5. Contact us as quickly as possible at 480-755-3343 or email us at info@harry2006.com.

6. Warn your friends and neighbors about these calls, and assure them that the calls are not coming from the Harry Mitchell campaign.

With your help, we can capture the information we need to take proper legal action against these imposters.

In the meantime, I'll apologize on behalf of Hayworth since something tells me he never will.

That's because after 12 years in Congress, the best J.D. Hayworth can do is pull cheap political stunts and run sleazy, false, negative TV ads. He has nothing else to offer. And that's exactly why we need a change.

As our most trusted volunteers and supporters, thank you for all the support you have given to this campaign since the very beginning. We could not have come this far without you, and we cherish your friendship and support. That's why we thought it was so important to make sure you knew about these calls right away and could help us set the record straight.

And that's why, with your continued hard work and support, Harry Mitchell is going to be the next Member of Congress from Arizona's 5th District!

Campaign Manager

That makes me sick. Hopefully it makes you sick too. Harry Mitchell is a good man and he doesn't deserve this. We need change in this country. Make sure you vote tomorrow. If you live in Arizona, Harry Mitchell and Jim Pederson deserve your vote. Elsewhere, there are some good Democrats running as well.

And when you are out there voting, keep an eye out for anything shady that is going on. Daily Kos has some good information about what to do if this happens.

Mitchell for Congress

I just made my first ever political donation.

Harry Mitchell for Congress

His race against J.D. Hayworth has turned into a statistical dead heat. I wanted to finally feel like I had done something this election year. I also requested a sign to put up in my window. I don't know how many people would actually see it, since I doubt many people look at my window, but oh well. I'll just be glad to be doing something to get Foghorn Leghorn out of office after he put those despicable notes up on his signs that basically implied that Harry Mitchell was going around stealing campaign signs.

In case anyone else wants to request a sign, you can go here.
