Hate to say...

...but the campaign cut the legs out. It's all up to the grassroots now.

Hint to grassroots leaders. Begin with the end in mind. Identify your nat del candidates now by going to fec.gov, downloading the donations to RP for your state, sort in descending order based on amounts donated and start calling.


lets get to the finish line and own the GOP!
