Midnight Special - NC to DC

Any North Carolina Hillary supporters out there? Well, sign up and get on the bus that's leaving Greensboro at Midnight Friday, making a pickup stop near the Raleigh Airport and heading on up to Washington for Saturday morning's DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting.
E-mail Ruth Owens to reserve a seat: firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the number going, the cost will be around $50. The return trip will have you back home about 8 p.m. Saturday.
Of course your reason for going is to tell the DNC to "count all the votes" but meeting Ruth should be worth the trip. A private citizen with no connection to the campaign, Ruth has used her own money to reserve the bus, spent after work hours calling and e-mailing friends and friends of friends to put this little project together. A virtual dynamo, this woman campaigned for Hillary in Rockingham County (borders Greensboro) and with her fellow volunteers put it in the win column for their candidate.
Who says one person can't make a difference? They do it every day in many ways. So climb aboard the Midnight Special, meet other Hillary Democrats and give Ruth some mojo for citizen activism. Then tell the DNC to COUNT ALL THE VOTES!
