Stopped by the Hillary campaign headquarters here today

One woman was walking out - no one else was there.

It turns out that the entire office went to a fund raising event with Bill today! Since I haven't had time to contribute to the campaign I missed it.

Bill Clinton Raises Money In Tallahassee
By Lynn Hatter 2 hours ago

Tallahassee may be a lucrative stop for the Clintons. The campaigns biggest surrogate, former President Bill Clinton spoke to Democrats at the home of Florida Party chairwoman Allison Tant.

The fundraiser was closed to reporters and attendees were instructed not to record. Prices ranged from $500 per person to $2,700. That's the maximum campaign donation amount.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the event drew about 200 people including outgoing Tallahassee Representative Alan Williams and former representative Loranne Ausley, who is trying to get her old seat back. Mayor Andrew Gillum was also on-hand, hes campaigned for Hilary Clinton in other states.

Its the third time this year a Clinton has come to Tallahassee. The former President addressed a crowd at Florida A&M University in March. Chelsea Clinton held court with a group of supporters that same month.


Oh well, I won't be able to do anything with the campaign until June anyway. I just had a few minutes and was closer than ten miles. One MAJOR problem with their headquarters - the parking is ridiculous. There is no way I can get my Suburban in and out of the parking lot and there is no street parking. Unless I can convince my husband to drive 90 miles one way each week in the truck so I can use his Prius, I won't be able to volunteer.

Maybe after the convention the Democratic Party will get her a better location.

1. I'm just north of Tampa

And also missed out.

I hope to get more involved when we fully shift to GE mode!

4. A non-politcal group I'm active with is opening an exhibit next week

So I'm buried at least until then. During the month the exhibit will be up we've doing gallery talks and classes so that will keep our members busy and I have to herd the cats to keep things going. I'm hoping to get most of my responsibilities wound up by May 8 and get back into campaign HQ the next week.

I hate doing the calls. During the 2008 campaign I set our team up to do the calls off the computer from home since we were rural with no place to phone bank - and we had several members who were not mobile. Using the online call lists rather than the printed ones our team ran out of calls to make in our area before the end of election day. All the other teams used printed calling lists and no other team completed all the calls they wanted to make.

I did all the computer work for our 2008 team - walk lists, call lists, rides to polls, etc. As a result I ended up being team leader when the original one dropped out.

I couldn't do it in 2012 - I had both knees replaced and carpal tunnel surgery and just couldn't focus to handle the work. I went in and made the calls a couple of times, but I hate making calls, even if I'm pretty good at it. I'd be better doing it from my home phone without all the distraction of a phone bank but I still hate doing them.
