Robert E. Fisher,MSW

It's time to talk about unseating Democratic Incumbents. Below are some winning strategies:

1. Run a candidate with name recognition. For example, coaxing Kweisi Mfume to run against Steny Hoyer, and Cindy Sheehan to run against Nancy Pelosi,would be ideal. The National Lawyers Guild of Detroit & Michigan Chapter should run a candidate to unseat John Conyers, Jr.

No matter how powerful incumbents may be "inside the Beltway," their achilles' heel is in their Congressional Districts, where they can be attacked.

Coax potential candidates to run by suggesting that dedicated volunteers, such as, "Code Pink" would canvass precincts. The key term is "dedicated volunteers."

2. Do not outsource canvassers and phone bank workers!

3. Understand the value of phone banks on election day. You win by getting people to the polls, who ordinarily would stay at home.
