From battleground to battleground

Days until the election: 14

Day 3 of early vote

Today was another hectic one. I spent the morning training canvassers in a supporter’s garage/makeshift office…very odd. We were then ‘exported’ to a different region of the city to do some door knocking ourselves. The neighbourhood was very deprived and there were a fair number of terrifying snarling dogs and equally terrifying people. Often people would open their inner door and talk to you through the grating of the outer door. Pretty unnerving as you can’t see who you are speaking to!

Stuart arrived from the campaign in Ohio this evening so I drove on my own to pick him up from the airport – scary stuff! We then ventured into a big casino on the strip for dinner. Wow. I’ve never seen anything like it. Now he’s here we will try and do a few touristy things – my first since arriving here nearly a month ago!
