I sent this email out early this morning in my new capacity as Maryland Delegate Chair for the Huckabee for President campaign. I have been working for the last two weeks to fill out our delegate and alternate delegate slate here in Maryland and, with the exception of a few holes at alternate, was able to get a great group of candidates together. Last Friday, I joined a number of Huckabee volunteers and one staff person at a hospitality suite at the MDGOP state convention. We were the only campaign with a suite and the next morning, on the convention floor, we outstickered the other guys. Small victories but victories nonetheless. If you are interested in helping the Huckabee campaign here in Maryland, please send me an email. Also, the campaign needs help getting signatures in Virginia to get Governor Huckabee on the ballot there. If you are interested, I can put you in touch with the campaign staff. They are paying $1 per signature.
Here's the email:
This email is going out to all the Huckabee supporters in Maryland that I have had contact with in the past two weeks, including every person that has filed for delegate or alternate delegate to the national convention.
First, I just want to express deep appreciation for everyone who went to Annapolis, Hagerstown, or Salisbury to place their names on the ballot. Thank you for taking the time to do that. We have an outstanding slate of candidates in every district.
I am also excited to have the Republican Minority Whip of the House of Delegates Chris Shank, Delegate Tony McConkey, and former State Senator andSecretary of Human Resources Christopher McCabe on our slate. These three stepped up to the plate to stand with us when many other elected officials had endorsed other campaigns.
There are a number of other elected and former elected officials that have expressed interest in endorsing Governor Huckabee as well, so stay tuned.
Finally, for our delegates and alternates, I just want to clear up any confusion. The campaign has a list of who you are, so they will be submitting the paperwork to put Governor Huckabee's name next to yours on the ballot. The campaign has until December 13th to do so.
A lot of people have been contacting me with great ideas about how to campaign for Governor Huckabee, hold events, and raise money. Keep those ideas coming! However, please understand that we may need to check to be sure that the campaign is okay with our activity on certain things, but having sign wavings, outreach at community events, etc. is definitely something that we should try to do.
I will be in touch again soon, and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me.
Thank you again!
