This was a better result than a few years later when a Constitution Party member in NJ was running for congress. Mind you, that the CP claims to be the nation's third largest party. I contributed $50, and as with Mr.Bertram received a gracious letter of thanks. However, this letter was more despondent. The letter said, "Thank you for the contribution (he also sent some campaign lit and a dvd), surprisingly though you are the only person who has sent a contribution so far."
This was three months from election day.
Congratulations to Harry Bertram for making the ballot and the A3P's effort. A special thanks goes out to the young man who Jamie Kelso has mentioned as the spearhead of the siganature drive.
A donation of $150 each to the A3P and Bertram for Governor is accompanying this post. Make us proud in October Harry!
