Thank You

Thanks to all of you who voted to entrust Nick with the Republican nomination to take on Dave Obey in November (for Nick's remarks last night you can click here). Also a big thanks goes out to all of our volunteers who walked in parades, put out yard signs and talked to friends and neighbors about Nick's campaign.

Nick is already hard at work to win this race. He has already issued a challenge to Dave Obey and Mike Miles to debate six times in the next 8 weeks.

But Nick needs your help to get the job done.

To sign up to volunteer, e-mail the campaign at or call us at (715) 254-9290.

Nick also needs contributions to pay for the expenses of campaign commercials, mail, yard signs and more. To contribute securely online with your credit card, you can click here. Or you can send a check to:

9-11 Remembered

Nick sent out this release today.

“Five years ago today we awoke to a nightmare,” said Reid. “I was on the ground in Washington that day, and saw first hand the evil, and destruction that our enemies seek to inflict. At the same time, I also witnessed the courage and resolve of our first responders and the men and women of our armed forces as they met this new challenge.”

“Our government’s most basic obligation is to protect the American people from future attacks. Because of our resolve, we have not been attacked here at home since that horrid day. This is a credit to our brave soldiers serving abroad, and our administration and law enforcement agencies here at home. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their steadfastness and courage in the job they have done.”

“Our work is not yet finished, however. Our side has to be successful 100% of the time, and the enemy only needs to be successful once to bring horror and death to our shores. We have been safe here at home up to this point because we have taken the fight to the enemy. Now in part because of our success, some are calling for us to retreat in Iraq and other battlefields in the War on Terror. I believe this would be a grave mistake. General John Abizaid said recently that if we cut and run in Iraq the terrorists will follow us home. We cannot afford this, we must make sure that we fight and win in Iraq and every battlefield in this war.”

Nick Endorsed by Journal Sentinel

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says "Reid the stonger pick."

Here's the key excerpt:

Reid, of Rice Lake, would be better able to navigate Congress, given his work for Ryun and three years as a legislative link for the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation. He recalls watching Congress debate such issues as President Bush's tax cuts and the No Child Left Behind bill.

That experience with the inner workings of Congress makes Reid the better pick.

Beth's Weekend Review

A note from Beth Reid...

Nick, the girls and I had an encouraging weekend as we talked with people at the Superior Dragonboat Festival, Burnett Co. Fair and parade, Price Co. Fair, and the Cumberland Rutabaga Festival and parade. We appreciate so much the hours many of you have put in to bring hope to the 7th District. We continuously receive excited responses as people here realize they may actually have real representation come this November.
