I hope he doesn't mind, but this post from the blogger Spank That Donkey is too good not to be read by members of this community. I think he is dead-on that McDonnell's kick-off tour is a great opportunity for us to get out and show him and the rest of the state that the Grassroots supports Jeff Frederick.
Would it be possible to print up fliers for each location and hand them out at events? Or perhaps we could all wear green as a symbol of our grassroots support for Chairman Frederick. This is a valuable opportunity to show our support from all corners of the state.

McDonnell Kick Off!
DateThursday, March 26, 2009 at 12:17AM
The McDonnell campaign will be kicking off their campaign this Saturday. They will be holding rallies in Northern Va, Richmond and Hampton Roads. What a great opportunity for those of us who are working to uphold the overwhelming election of our State Chairman, Jeff Frederick.
It will provide us the chance to express to Bob McDonnell(Robert@bobmcdonnell.com) theconcern for his election as Governor we all have if Jeff Frederick is removed as Chairman. If you are able to attend any of the rallies please do so. And while there communicate to the others who are there the concerns for Bob McDonnell(Robert@bobmcdonnell.com) that we have.
And by all means if you have a chance to speak to the candidate himself, or his staff, let them know that we, the Grassroots, who worked so hard for his election as Attorney General are having a hard time getting motivated for his campaign. That when we finally elected a chairman at our last convention who we knew would listen to the Grassroots our motivation was at an all time high.
But due to the antics of the State Central Committee and others who did not support Jeff Frederick at the convention, and have not since he was elected, our motivation for his candidacy for Governor and for the Republican Party is at its lowest level in years.
We want this situation settled. We want to be focused on sweeping all three statewide offices this November and to hold on to our majority in the House of Delegates. We want to see Conservative Republicans elected or re-elected in our local elections. We also want Jeff Frederick's election as our Party Chairman to be allowed to stand. We believe this can happened if Bob McDonnell will listen to the voices of those he will need to be elected Governor this November.
If you can be at any of the rallies this Saturday, please go to show your support for Bob McDonnell and for Jeff Frederick. If you are unable to attend telephone or email Bob McDonnell(Robert@bobmcdonnell.com) and express to him and to his staff the concerns that you have regarding him being elected this November if Jeff Frederick is removed as Chairman.
