The Campaign for David Smith(L) Tx CD2 has now just reached their goal of knocking on 200,000 doors. “Even if we haven’t gotten all the votes, we at least educated the people,” says Smith. “I’ve been at this for two long years”.
Smith’s opponent, Ted Poe, is the 11th ranked housemember. This will be an interesting race to watch, as there is no democrat running for the District 2 Congressional Seat.
Both Smith and I have been running down the Texas roads, speaking at each other’s engagements. This has enabled us to reach a wide array of audiences, as well as cut down on excessive campaign expenses. We also travelled to New York City to speak at Libertyfest, the benefit for 9/11 first responders. Both Smith and I have run our campaigns on shoestring budgets, getting donations from only citizens, no corporations. We have proven that major campaigns don’t need huge financial expenditures, something that we hope tells our opponents something-as well as the voters.
