The Last 8 Weeks of the Campaign
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The last 8 weeks of the 2006 campaign season are upon us. To me it does not seem like a year has already passed since I formally announced my intention to run for Governor of Alabama. So many wonderful things have happened and I have met so many new and wonderful people traveling the great state of Alabama. I guess it’s true that time flies when you are having fun. A very big part of me wishes that there were still another year at least before the election.
Despite not attaining ballot access I have not been ignored by the media in this election. The following is a list of articles and news coverage I have received in this election.
Campaign Appearances & Speeches
First Campaign Speech in Wetumpka
Speech to National Conference of Black Mayors in Selma
Candiate Forum at Annual PTA Convention
Speakers Corner Birmingham
Thursday Night Happy Hour in Roanoke
Media Coverage (Video) - There has been a great deal more televised media coverage than what is presented below, however, I have not been able to record or otherwise acquire copies of every piece.

There has been additional coverage by newspapers, TV and radio that is not available online but this list shows that I have had a major impact and that the media is very interested in my campaign and my ideas for Alabama. I have a number of other major events coming up in the month of October.
Oct. 10, 2006 - Speaking at the Sunrise Roatry Club on Highland Ave in Birmingham
Oct. 12, 2006 - Speaking at Auburn University
Oct. 14, 2006 - Speaking at a Prison Reform Rally in Montgomery
Oct. 24, 2006 - Univeristy of Alabama Birmingham Gubernatorial Debates
Oct. 29, 2006 - Speaking to University of Montevallo Progressive Alliance
Oct. 30, 2006 - Alabama Gubernatorial Debates in Montgomery. I have been completely excluded from participation so I will be setting up my laptop and video camera in the parking lot and answering the questions in Real Time over the internet. Thanks to modern technology it will really be impossible to exclude me completely.
Oct. 31, 2006 - Since I was excluded from participation in the debates the #1 Talk Radio Station in Alabama is giving me two hours on their morning show which reaches all of North and Central Alabama and has a very large audience. They do not like Riley or Baxley and this opportunity could give me a large boost at the polls on Nov. 7.
There will likely be a number of events and engagements in September as well. Many times I get last minute invites. I know that I am being profiled in the Opelika-Auburn News sometime before the election and I am also being profiled in General Surgery News on my stances on healthcare.
I have also found someone willing to make an in-kind contribution in the form of campaign ads which will stream from my website. These will be along the lines of "Celebrity Death Match...South Park" and will hold no punches when it comes to the other candidates in this race. I need your financial help to ensure there is enough bandwidth on the website for these ads as well as to air them on television if finances permit.
I hope that all of you who have made contributions, financial or otherwise, are proud of your candidate and the things that I have been able to accomplish with your support. Please consider making another contribution to this campaign and help me make the most of the remaining opportunities still ahead in this election.
If you would rather mail your contribution you may mail it to:

I'll see you on the campaign trail.
