"Yes," he said. "There were about 40 people there. I arrived just as Tabitha was finishing speaking, so they asked me to speak. I just introduced myself and said where the district is and who I'm running against. I didn't talk about the issues."

He nodded. "I just have to get them to vote."

"Are those any good?" I asked.
"Nope," he said.
