The Hump Day Report started during the primary election campaigns in 2008. Since I’m on the web nearly 24/7, I decided to track what was happening with the various candidates and send out email updates to a few friends and family. They sent it to their friends and family…and so on…and so on. My email list grew as I kept my peeps up-to-date on all things political – the good, the bad and the ugly. After the general election, I thought about stopping the HDR, but there was such a cry throughout the land, that I was persuaded to continue 😉 What you see now is the next level of the HDR, the HDR blog.
I dedicate this blog to my Mom, a true American patriot:

God Bless America – Pass This On- LET’S ROLL!
You’re in CA? You have my condolences, being a conservative. So sad because 20 years ago I would have been envious! Actually, CA is an awesome state, if only the politics weren’t so horrible. Thanks for visiting my blog. I always like to meet conservative bloggers!
Actually Freedom, I’m in HI……just as bad as CA if not worse!!!!
Hawaii! Who cares about politics? I AM envious 🙂
Oh, you have no idea! The politics here are more lopsided than I’ve ever seen. People think it’s paradise….maybe if you only come here for vacation.
I like your Blog. Sometimes I think I’m the only Republican in Irvine,CA
You’re not alone on the web, Sherry! Thanks for reading the HDR – let’s roll in 2012.
