I enjoyed starting Saturday in Fort Payne, the county seat of DeKalb County. Ever since I was a youngster spending time at my grandfather’s house on Sand Mountain, I liked mornings up that way.
I spent time with – and had the opportunity to speak to – DeKalb County Republicans at Cattle Stampede Steakhouse. Time was limited, so I wasn’t able to entertain questions. I will be back there though on April 9th, and we should have time for that then.
I saw a few DeKalb County election officials that I know: Probate Judge Ronnie Osbourn and Donna Pate of the Board of Registrars.
The remainder of the morning and the afternoon was spent distributing campaign materials in Ider – atop Sand Mountain and where my mom grew up – and various counties: Cherokee, Clay, Coosa, Elmore.
It’s always good to see patriotism around and about.
