Last week, Grand Old Partisan, with a busload o' Republican activists, campaigned in New York state. Volunteers knocked on doors in Orange and Dutchess counties in support of U.S. Representative Nan Haywood. Support for the Republican ticket was strong, and many people expressed their gratitide for Haywood's firm opposition to Obamacare.
Among the highlights of the trip was marching along with Rep. Haywood in a picturesque, small-town parade. The evening before, she stopped by the local campaign HQ to thank the volunteers.
