Letter Writing

The letter writing could be effective to reach people who won't listen to personal conversation, and those who aren't in situations to begin a personal conversation. These hand-written letters may encourage people to find out more about the message.

Ron Paul, a Write-In Candidate

A note in support of Dr. Paul.

While the presidential campaigns are sending out reams of colorful fliers and slick brochures, some residents in Iowa and New Hampshire were surprised to discover the neat cursive handwriting of Janice Kramer on an envelope in their mailbox.

In a move reminiscent of former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean's 2003 grassroots letter-writing campaign to Iowans, Kramer -- a registered nurse from Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin, just across the Iowa border -- is one of scores of people who have been mailing handwritten letters to Iowans on behalf of Ron Paul.

Writing on the front and back of a piece of notebook paper in light blue ball-point pen, Kramer told one prospective caucus-goer that she has been married 36 years, has 11 children, and is convinced that Paul would make the best president. "Please consider voting for Dr. Paul at your Republican caucus on January 3, 2008," Kramer wrote.
