What a great day - and oh my goodness... the speakers were amazing! Everyone was welcome, everyone... I even sent a personal invite to Ayotte, Guinta and Bass - and you know, they never even opened them. This is the regard they hold for the women of NH.

Over the course of the day over 400 people came to the Rally - I'd say it was a great success - and thanks to all those who did come out. WIth family obligations and vacation week, and sports and meetings and the cold start to the day - what a great turnout!!!
