IOWA : DETAILS FROM KERRY CAMP IN IOWA

Dear Friends:

My name is Eric Stern and I work for the Iowa Democratic Party in Davenport, Iowa. In the most important Election Day of my lifetime, John Kerry and George Bush are running dead even here in Iowa (see article).

Volunteers from Illinois have been knocking doors and calling voters with us every step of the way. As a result, we are poised to win Iowa for John Kerry.

However, President Bush was in Davenport on Monday and
he is expected to get a bounce in the polls here after his visit.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE SURE IOWA GOES
BLUE FOR JOHN KERRY!

Wisconsin Saturday Travel

Buses leave every Saturday morning until Election Day from downtown Chicago and Evanston for a day of canvassing in Wisconsin. Right now, Wisconsin is one of the top three battleground states. WI is a must-win state and the state will largely turn on how many ground troops either campaign turns out.

The WI trips will be sanctioned through the Democratic campaign, Wisconsin Victory 2004. The buses will be paid for by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Unity Fund.

Our grassroots organization is dedicated to bringing a Kerry Victory in Wisconsin, a key battleground state in this election. A lot is depending on us!!!

Want to go ahead and sign-up for a weekend? Register on the JK Volunteer Center and leave the following information in the RSVP.

1) Where you want to meet the bus in Evanston or Chicago.
2) If you are willing to drive if needed and take other volunteers.
3) Your cellular phone for the organizer.
4) Your e-mail address.

Help Raise funds for Wisconsin Bus Trips

We need your help to help raise funds for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Unity Fund in order to put hundreds of volunteers on the ground every single weekend until election day. Break out the house parties!

Please even if you cannot travel to Wisconsin, you can be a part of this great task we have been challenged with accomplishing. Please consider holding a house party to raise funds to help IllinoisforKerry volunteers travel to Wisconsin. Don't worry you will not be alone if you need someone to walk you through the process. Set a date, get the word out and contact Sharon Sikes to help. Sharon can help with speakers, handouts, supplies and more. Contact Sharon Sikes.

Just want to donate to the effort without throwing a house party? You can contact Sharon for the donation form.
