The straw poll results have been announced, Allen West has finished speaking, most of the bloggers are off to the bars… CPAC 2011 is over and winding down.
We’ve had an extraordinary time here at the convention. We met a lot Romney fans, got acquainted with a number of our readers, had great discussions with all sorts of conservatives, and did a number of interviews with various media and blogs. We’ve also made some good connections that will help us in promoting our site, as well as networked with other pro-Romneyites that will help us in promoting Romney.
It doesn’t hurt that we probably sold a few of our shirts along the way (since most of us were sporting them through the halls.)
We want to give a big thanks to those who support us by reading our content, sharing links on Facebook and Twitter, and leaving comments on our posts. But the biggest thanks of this evening goes to those who donated to help us get here because our trip would not have happened otherwise. We still have some costs to make up and would still appreciate any purchases from our store to assist in bearing the financial burdens of the site.
Also (before I forget), thanks to Ross, David, Luke, Aaron, Jeff, and the many others who made the trip here to support Romney in the straw poll and listen to the great speakers of the conference. It is fun and enjoyable, but still a sacrifice of funds and time away from family and work.
This is going to be a fun and interesting year in politics as the GOP primary shifts into gear – starting in 3..2..1…
