I am writing this e-mail to see if you can help a true progressive West Virginia democrat Sure Thorn gets elected. I am not presently active with her campaign but plan to in the further; she is running unopposed in the primary. Sue is from Ohio County and was talked into running by party members and friend since she has been so politically active in the past and spent so much time in the last presidential election. She is running against republican congressman McKinley. He presently has $1.5 million in his war chest to Sue’s $54,000; Sue is fighting a grass roots uphill battle against the money machine of the right. I have talked to her on two occasions and each time I am more impressed with her views, on our last talk at the women’s democratic meeting in Ohio County Sue commented that she is not accepting any oil, gas or coal company money, but is for the works in these fields. Sue could use all the face time she can get in the media to help her beat McKinley. I have mention to Sue about contacting you, Ed Shultz, and Randy Rhoads to express her views on any topic you would like to ask (uncensored).I know that you will need to check this out to insure this is not another right wing nut case. If you can help please contact Sue Thorn or Myself (via E-mail). I hope you can help it has been a long time since I felt this strongly about a Candidate, I sure do not have the same feeling about Joe Minchin/Liebermann want-a-be.

Thom, you are always saying to get involved, so I did as you said. I can’t change the world, but wars are won one battle at a time, (Tag your it).

Thank You for your time

Paul Altman
