Our paperwork has been accepted for Alan Keyes to be an official write-in candidate for President of the United States in Texas. Hip-hip-hooray!

The required number of electors is 34, but we got 49, so we can have plenty of back-up in case any of our signatures is not accepted.

Marvin Sprouse, state chairman, met workers for lunch and then participants went together to the Secretary of State's office to turn the forms in, complete with signs and funny hats. The folks at the SOS office got in on the merriment, even furnishing some of the hats.

Most of our thanks go to Marvin, who literally drove all over the state to get signatures. Also to Nancy Goettman of San Antonio and all the other local grassroots workers, for their assistance.
