    In my bluish county, Nelson, the Dems are very active and have been doing phone banking at least twice a week, and frequent canvassing events. We even opened a small campaign office that's open 6 days a week and staffed mostly by volunteers. We're also sending out handwritten letters to voters.

    Granted, this is a small county population-wise, but it's been a haven for DFHs for decades. Of course, we also have the Wintergreen crowd, but most of those are second homes.

    We're doing our best to keep Tom, who's done a great job in a challenging district. He's far more conservative than I am, but he'd have to be in order to have a chance around here. Nelson and Charlottesville are the bluest spots in a very large district.

    Here's hoping we Don't Get Hurt!
