It's time for a wake-up call.
My name is Elizabeth Lauten and I want CNN to fly me to Tampa!
Four ninety-five. The beltway that separates those in D.C. from the people they represent...
I came to D.C. with a single mission -- to stand up for the people who live outside of this beltway. Back then, we were told hope and change was the answer to it all. But four years later, Obama has squeezed the hope out of all of us. This year, we change that.
I'm Elizabeth Lauten and I approved this message, because I want to go to Tampa and give the beltway crowd a wake-up call.

Side note: I want to go to Tampa because I have worked on every Presidential campaign since 2000. I want to go to Tampa because I work tirelessly within the Republican Party. I want to go to Tampa because I've volunteered in almost special election since 2007 (and paid my way to get around the country to do so). I want to go to Tampa because I was the Alexandria Young Republican Chair (the largest YR club in VA) for 3 yrs and during that time did all that I could help-elect Virginia Republicans. I want to go to Tampa because I've paid my own way through the '08 cycle to work in all the early primary states and later to work in a Victory Office for the last month of the McCain campaign. I want to go to Tampa because I don't complain when handed the hard work that's necessary to win. I want to go to Tampa because I bleed blood, sweat and politics.
