A few notes

With the Independence Party convention now 2 and a half weeks away things are starting to happen fast. Tonight Peter Hutchinson hosted about 150 young people delivering a great speech encouraging them to take ownership of this election and his campaign. In the process he collected a few more dollars, a few more volunteers, and a few more delegates to the June 24th convention.

Big news Peter Hutchinson’s team is set. As I've mentioned a few times in the past Peter Hutchinson has been working to put together a highly respected team to run as his running mate, Attorney General, State Auditor, and Secretary of State. In the past those races have been distant afterthoughts for the party, that will change this time around.

The race for Senate is heating up as both Robert Fitzgerald and Jim Haviland are working the delegates. I will be looking for a something from the Haviland campaign this Saturday at the CD 7 convention in Fergus Falls to convince me this race isn't Fitzgerald’s to lose.

Also great Stanley Cup finals game one going on right now as the Carolina Hurricanes have rallied from three goals down to tie the Edmonton Oilers at three in the 3rd period. I'll have to leave it at that for now as I have to catch the end of this game.
