The recent Sportsmen for McCain rally was a success. It was attended by a few hundred people, which I think was pretty good for an event in a remote part of Berks County and which didnâ€™t feature either of the candidates.
The following video is of Aaron Hobbs, the National Director of Sportsmen for McCain, speaking to a crowd that was certainly orders of magnitude larger than AHSA, which is alluded to in his speech.
My basic message is: donâ€™t believe the media polls. Obama spent his weekend in Philadelphia while McCain was sending surrogates to the southeastern part of the state. That tells me that both McCain and Obamaâ€™s internal polling is showing the race as a dead heat, and that Obamaâ€™s polling is telling him his support in Philadelphia needs to be higher. Donâ€™t give up â€” this is still winnable. Pennsylvania will be a key state in this election.
This wonâ€™t be our last event. Weâ€™ve got a table for yet another gun show up in Allentown. We really need to bolster NRA endorsed candidates, now including John McCain. There will be no break until Barack Obama is a distant memory.
