    I received a window card in a Presidential election. I can only assume Trump and the RNC sent it to me because I am a registered Republican. However, going back to Ford\Carter, this is the first window card I've ever received from any candidate.

    Suffice to say, the card was unsolicited on my part. It does make me think there is teeth in Mr. Trump's unconventional campaigning.

    I'm just glad Hillary didn't send you one. :D

    I hope for the day that happens but it is not a realistic hope.

    A card advertising as candidate which can be placed in your front window.

    And now I'm getting e-mails from the Trump campaign asking for volunteers. Again, no other Republican candidate has asked me for dit. The GOP has just written me off.

    I was in the Springfield area last weekend, saw Trump signs EVERYWHERE. He appeared to be strong in that area.

    I've gotten several snail mails from him and yet to open the first one. Maybe I should take note. I email both senators and our rep fairly frequently so I'm on their mailing list.

    KY, you have to understand. I live in a solid Democratic part of California, Jackie Speir's district. The most I get from conservative groups (National GOP and the NRA) are requests for donations of money to be spent in other jurisdictions.

    I've gotten a couple of letter from Trump for President. I haven't opened them, though...
