Obama and Owens winning GOP support

I’m one of the many volunteers for Rep. Bill Owens who make calls on his behalf.

This is my third time and I enjoy it very much. The last two sets of calls that I have made were to some Republicans, and while most said no way for any Democrat, I got a few that are going Democrat, most for just Rep. Owens and not the president.

That all changed in my latest phone banking. The last person I talked to was a Republican, and he and his wife are with the Democratic Party all the way! Not just Rep. Owens but they want the Democrats to take back the House. He feels (like I do) that Obama deserves more time to fix our country, and he does. It shows that some Republicans are not happy with their candidate this year and want a change.

To the gentleman who was my last call for that night, it lifted my spirits big time to know that someone who is a registered Republican wants the Democrats to take over the House, especially after some Republicans wanted nothing to with the Democratic Party.
