Hat Tip to M2 who brought this to my attention this morning.
got this in email:
This morning we were forwarded a post put out by the Associated Press that announces a planned statewide bus tour for Harry Reid that kicks off today!
The Reid campaign did not announce this bus tour to its list, it does not link to any tour information on the homepage, and we’ve found it nearly impossible to identify specific tour stop information. Is this what we should expect from a sitting Senator who claims to represent the people of Nevada?
What this suggests to us is that Harry Reid knows he’s being beat down in the polls, he knows he has to get out across the state and start meeting with constituents, but he’s doing so in a calculated way so as to avoid meeting Nevadans who might ask tough questions.
Our team, now based in Las Vegas, will be following the campaign tour bus beginning tomorrow morning, and we plan to trail the bus for the entire tour. You’ll be able to follow the updates on the Nevada News Platoon blog.
Harry Reid sets out on Nevada bus tour
Embattled Nevada Senator Harry Reid appears to be in a position that now demands he take his campaign on the road. A report put out by the Associated Press notes that Harry Reid will embark on a statewide tour that begins Monday morning.
On Monday, the politically vulnerable Democratic majority leader of the Senate plans to hit the road from his hometown of Searchlight for a three-day bus tour of the state he has represented in the Senate since 1986.
I’ve contacted activists and tea partiers across the state to try and piece together the events scheduled for the tour, and the following is the best I’ve been able to find so far.
Monday, April 5th, 2010
-Tour kickoff at the Searchlight Nugget, 8:45 AM @ 100 N Highway 95
-Tour stops to follow are in Pahrump and Boulder City, but I have not been able to confirm times or locations
-Monday ends with a Barbecue at Lorenzi Park in Las Vegas @ 3:30 to 6:00 PM.
Tuesday, April 6th, 2010
-Tour starts in Minden, then to Carson City Fallon and Fernley, ending in Reno with a Barbecue at UNR (Fitzgerald Student Services Lawn) @ 3:00 to 6:00 PM
-I’m unable to confirm times and locations for the other stops, but I’m working on it.
Wednesday, April 7th, 2010
-Lovelock, Winnemucca, Blue Mountain and Elko
-No information on times or locations
To date, the Reid campaign has not published the information on their website, nor have they sent out email updates that include the relevant information.
The only way I was able to find the information is through event pages set up on Obama’s “Organizing for America” website and a Google search that reveals hidden RSVP pages on the Harry Reid campaign website.
We plan on following the bus tour through Nevada this week, and we’ll file updates/reports here on the Nevada News Platoon.
You can run away, Harry ole boy
