The Gabrielle Giffords’ CD8 campaign for Congress cranked up an impromptu gathering at Tucson’s Hotel Congress yesterday afternoon.
It was strictly an after work drop-in sort of gathering, but it was well enough organized to actually interview fifty volunteers to work the campaign. That was in addition to the more traditional volunteer cards filled in and left with the campaign.
I was not in attendance myself, but the gnomes who watch such things for me reported a large crowd, with people constantly coming and going, nominating petitions being turned in and a substantial amount of money raised.
How much? The gnomes failed me there, but the “suggested donation” was ten bucks and apparently some folks donated a lot more than that.
