> Washington Journal: Democrats (202) 585-3881
> Washington Journal: Republicans (202) 585-3880
> Washington Journal: Others (202) 585-3882
> According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 68% of

> 67% of Republicans and 64% of Democrats - but not
> Ms. Brown, the CPD, George Bush, or John Kerry.
> Please don't forget to challenge the CPD on Sunday

> Finally, the Badnarik campaign footed the lion's

> Badnarik campaign was more than willing to help out

> Several Green Party members were more than generous

> However, it was costly to fly several of us to New
