I was driving home from a Bailey Barnstorm event in St. Clair County earlier this week listening to the Cubs game when Pat and Ron were talking about August.
For them and for major league ball players, they said, this is the time of the year when it really starts to feel like a long season.
I can feel that on the campaign trail.
Republican Day at the State Fair is a great landmark we can point to on the calendar when the days start to run together. We’re almost to Labor Day but not quite yet.
What Ron Coomer pointed out on that broadcast was that this is the time of year when ballplayers can really set themselves apart.
If you’re able to bring the energy and show up everyday, you can make big gains off of the people who can’t.
That’s our job right now. Keep showing up. Keep putting in the work every single day because this is when winners are made.
Our teams of volunteers are on the doors this weekend (even on the south side of Chicago 👀). I’m back on the road on Monday.
We know hard work. We’re Republicans. Let’s make up some ground on these Democrats in the dog days of summer.
