Our Country Deserves Better in Michigan
Hello everyone -- Joe Wierzbicki of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee here. I wanted to let you know that I've confirmed with our media buyers that our television ad campaign to defeat Barack Obama in Michigan officially begins TODAY (Monday, October in Michigan. (You can see some of the ads we are running here: http://www.ourcountrydeservesbetter.com/ads/index.html )
The ad buy will be several hundred thousand dollars - and could go even higher. We are working very hard to secure as much funding as possible for this campaign to "Save Michigan" from falling into the Obama column on Election Day.
The ads we are placing begin running today in the Upper Peninsula and the northern part of the Lower Peninsula. In the next day or two the ads will also start running throughout the rest of the Lower Peninsula as well.
NINE PRO-McCAIN/PALIN RALLIES TO COME LATER THIS WEEK!
In conjunction with our TV ad campaign, we will also be bringing our "Stop Obama Tour" to Michigan, crossing both the Upper and Lower Peninsulas from this Thursday - Saturday. We'll conduct NINE rallies supporting the McCain/Palin ticket throughout the state, and we really need your help to get the word out and help us generate nice big crowds for these events... we're going to get as much media coverage for this effort as possible.
We've got a lot of work to do here in Michigan, but victory is still within our reach. With the decision by the Obama campaign to pull staff and dollars out of Michigan (we don't know how much, because they wisely won't admit to the extent of their retreat), we have a window of opportunity to turn the race around in favor of the McCain/Palin ticket.
Here is the information on our upcoming rallies in Michigan: http://www.ourcountrydeservesbetter.com/nationaltour/index.html
Please, I can't underscore enough how important it is for you to help us get the word out to all the GOP and conservative activists in the state. Please call our pro-McCain talk radio hosts and get them to help out in this effort.
Now let's go fight the good fight and win this state for Senator McCain and Governor Palin!

P.S. I grew up here in Michigan, born in Livonia. My family lived in Novi before moving to Brighton where I attended Hornung Elementary and Maltby Middle School. My family then moved to California, but my sister stayed back to graduate from Michigan State University (a rivalry we joked about since I was always a U of M Wolverines fan!). The Chairman of the Our Country Deserves Better Committee, Howard Kaloogian, is also a Michigan native and he still works with Hillsdale College. Our committee is determined to do all we can to turn this state "red" on November 4th, and we look forward to working with you hand-in-hand
