Flight over Denver

Good morning from Denver. We had a successful trip to Fort Collins, Colorado yesterday. In next Tuesday’s episode of the vlog we’ll look at how County Clerk & Recorder Scott Doyle has worked to increase voter turnout there, and how his Vote Center model does (and doesn’t) transfer effectively to other locales.

It’s 7:23AM here and Tom and I are off to Iowa. Hoping to catch up later today with a few candidates that haven’t yet answered the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, including Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul and Fred Thompson, who are all scheduled to be in Iowa tonight. If you can provide any help getting access to them or other candidates that will be in Iowa this weekend, e-mail me at jacob-at-whytuesday-dot-org.
