Newly elected Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele plans an "off the hook" public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party's principles to "urban-suburban hip-hop settings."
Apparently T Mac the O-G (I like that for a couple of reasons) has decided buying that straw poll was a good investment, because now....he's loadin' up the buses, kinda like his candidate's campaign said they were gonna do for the Rules and Bylaws meeting that settled the issue of Michigan and Florida. Didn't go too well for them, as I recall....
More than 20 North Carolinians will be on the bus to Washington.
A group of Hillary Clinton supporters plans to leave on a chartered bus at 2 a.m. to rally outside the Rules & Bylaws Committee deciding the fate of delegates from Michigan and Florida tomorrow morning.
Garner resident Almedia Cruz, a Clinton volunteer who organized the caravan, said the idea came from local supporters, though the national campaign found them a nicer bus after it got wind of the trip. The new bus, which seats 55, is normally used for sports teams.
The bus will make two stops to pick up more supporters along Interstate 95. Separate buses from Charlotte and Greensboro organized by backers there are also heading to D.C. tonight.
Supporters will pay $25 to cover the cost of gas and a driver. They're bringing their own signs and T-shirts and plan to come up with some chants during the five-hour drive.
"We haven't been given any instructions at all," Cruz said. "This is not being organized by the campaign. It was organized by our people here."
I guess we get treated to this tactic again at Shad Planking...for whatever good they'll think it'll do....
