Senator John Kerry (D – MA): “To be truthful with you, I’m not sure why…”

Monday, October 30th, 2006

The GOTW Road Team caught up with 2004 Presidential Candidate John Kerry in California at a campaign event; the Senator didn’t know why we vote on Tuesdays (check the video for what he thought), but did have some strong opinions about Election Day Registration and other access issues.

P.S. from the Team: I know we’ve been talking to Democrats for the last couple entries, but we’re out to ask anyone we can find. Stay tuned as we look for answers to “Why Tuesday” from Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and Vegetarians – and that’s just for starters.
