Just got a phone call from Joe Wilson.
Yes, THAT Joe Wilson. The congressman who yelled "You lie" - the yell heard 'round the world.
He is actually a long-time friend. (More about our friendship of several decades HERE.)
Joe called to remind me that he had been reprimanded before, or perhaps chastised is a better word.
Joe is the one who made the nominating speech for me at our county's political convention. He did a great job.
Thanks to Joe and hundreds of other brave, energetic volunteers, we pulled through and won the election.
