YOU & the making of the next US president

Your vote as a Delegate to 80-20's Endorsement Convention (EC)
may just decide who will be the next US president.
Here is why.

First: In 2000, 80-20 endorsed Gore getting 70% of the APA voters
in CA to go for Gore, and Bush lost CA by 12 points. In 2004, if 80-20
endorses the Dem. nominee again, CA will likely remain safely in the
Democrats' column. On the other hand, if 80-20 will endorse Bush,
Bush will probably need to make up 4 points ONLY in order to win CA.
California will become a hotly contested state! If Bush wins CA's 55
electoral votes, the race for the White House will be over for the

Second: YOU can be one of the less than 100 Delegates to 80-20's
EC, if you are a dues-paying member, run for a Delegate position and win.
Whom 80-20 will endorse is decided by those Delegates.

Once, you become a Delegate to 80-20's EC, your one vote in the
EC will probably have more impact on the making of our next
president than sum of 50,000 votes cast by other citizens
Phenomenal responsibility !

So please carefully consider whether you want to be a Delegate. See
Article 7 of 80-20's Bylaws which describes its endorsement procedure. It is a very fair and open
process aiming to serve the best interests of the APA community.
80-20 will call for candidates to run for Delegates soon.
