IAHF List: Speaker of the House Tom DeLay has called a mandatory GOP meeting for tomorrow (Wed) 9am as Bush is running scared on CAFTA and we MUST KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!!!
As you can see, although there are 50 more congressmen in the "no, leaning no" column than there are in the "yes, leaning yes" column, we can't get complacent because there are 138 in the "undecided, declined to answer, and no response" categories, and thats a lot of people, more than enough for Bush to win if he swings enough of them over, and with a special GOP meeting planned for tomorrow am at which Bush will speak and "call in his markers" as he goes into last ditch arm twisting mode, we've got our work cut out for us.
Below you'll see the TOLL FREE #s, and the lists of people to KEY ON as well as phone script, also info re the web based radio show I'll be on tomorrow from 2-3 Pacific time, 3-4 mountain, 4-5 central, 5-6 Eastern
