I know nobody is reading this posts anymore, but I have a question: What can the National LP do for us state parties? Or more to the point, what CAN'T they do?

I was under the impression that LPN is very restrictive by law as to how they can help the state parties. Specifically, they cannot give us much (if any) financial assistance.

So, how do the other parties do it? Example (from the St. Louis Post-Distpatch):

Quote:
In the final stretch, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved at least $52 million to run TV ads in more than 60 districts, nearly all held by their own party. The National Republican Campaign Committee has set aside $35 million in airtime in 55 races, and officials say more is on the way.


This appears, to me at least, that both national parties are throwing lots of money to the states. How can THEY do it but WE can't? What am I missing?

What is missing is evidence that Alabama is an actual political party and not just a club. The LPN helps several states who have candiates on the ballot and have a decent organization and active members. I wouldn't give us a nickel until we developed a plan and made it work. As I have said many times, it is not a political party if nobody ever gets elected to anything.
