SOME SEASONED POLITICIANS HAVE EXPRESSED INTEREST IN THE POST. DO YOU THINK YOU CAN COMPETE WITH THEM WHEN IT COMES TO FUNDRAISING AND POLITICKING? What I'm planning is a really vigorous grassroots campaign. You know, we had our first public event [two weeks ago] and there were almost 150 people there. And I have to say that I really was proud to be with them — all these activists and labor leaders and campaign experts were there to support this, to support my effort. We are ready to go, we're excited about the opportunity, we are going to have the money to compete — we raised $40,000 in three weeks in December with two-thirds of it from small donors. And we're going to have a strong Internet presence and a face-to-face networking plan — all the things you need to be competitive with those guys. It's an uphill battle, but it's one that people who are with me have won before.
