"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Southwestern Swing: Dean visits Arizona and Texas this weekend

posted by annatopia at Wednesday, July 09, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Hello Arizona and Texas!!! Dr Dean is headed your way! We got an email from Brandon Cruickshank, a meetup host in Flagstaff, AZ. He wants everyone to know that this Saturday, July 12, Dean will be appearing at the Coconino County Democratic Party Annual Picnic at Fort Tuthill Park in Flagstaff. The event will be FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Brandon provides these details:

Fort Tuthill is across from the Highway 89A entrance to I-17. The event is free and starts at 11:15 am on Saturday, July 12. Food will be available for a small cost. The event is sponsored by the Coconino County Democratic Party and the Flagstaff Meeup for Dean. For more information, please send an email.

On Sunday, Dr Dean will be doing the Texas Two-Step. He'll visit Houston for two fundraisers, then head to Dallas for a fundraiser and a public rally. At this time, there is no information regarding a public rally in Houston, but if I get something I will certainly post it. Here's the Houston information:

Sunday, July 13th, 2003, Hosted by David Much and Leaders in the Gay/Lesbian Community
2414 Brentwood (off Kirby in River Oaks), Houston, Texas - 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
This fundraiser is open to the public at the following rates: Hosts:$500, Supporters:$250, Guest:$100

Sunday, July 13th, 2003, Hosted by Bernie and Phyllis Milstein
The Four Leaf Towers: 5110 San Felipe, Houston, Texas - 3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
This fundraiser is open to the public at the following rates: Hosts: $500, Supporter: $250, Guest: $100

And finally, the event that D/FW has been craving: The Big D Rally for Dean!

Meet and Rally with Gov. Howard Dean, M.D. Democrat For President
Sunday, July 13 @ 7 p.m. - Dallas City Hall Plaza, 1500 Marilla in downtown Dallas
Access Free • Public Invited ....but bring the checkbook or credit card to make a small donation! Signature petitions, Dean goodies, flyers, and special guests will be onsite. This event has been organised by the Dallas and Ft Worth Meetup groups, under the guidance of Dean for Texas.

There is also a private fundraiser being held in Dallas prior to the rally, but I haven't been given license to publicly print the information. If you want to attend the pre-rally fundraiser, get in touch with me and I'll hook you up with the details. The fees for the fundraiser are the same as Houston. Serious inquiries only, please.

As always, if you know of any upcoming events in your town, leave them in the comments section and I'll append this post.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
