How many times have we heard that Texans are independent and determined to stay that way? It’s never been more true than it is now.
In an incredibly inspiring story, Texas talk show host Michael Berry is heading an effort to bring more than 1000 of his listeners across the country to Florida to help win the state for Mitt Romney. Florida’s 29 electoral votes may be the key to winning the election on November 6. The listeners will meet in Texas, caravan from there at their own expense, and pick up other listeners along the way.
Berry broadcasts from Houston, and the caravan is leaving there on October 28 and will arrive in Pensacola that same night. For the next week the volunteers will drive vans to help local Florida voters get to the polling places.
“I just threw the idea out there, and listeners across the country responded with an overwhelming willingness to do it. I was half kidding, because the logistics of such a trip are a nightmare. But we brought in 50 listeners to volunteer to coordinate this, and what they’ve done is nothing short of amazing.”
This is the itinerary from their website:
October 28, 2012

The estimated cost for the trip is:
$10 (required) registration fee (includes Win Florida 2012 lanyard for identification)
$125* (optional) for van (roundtrip + transportation during stay in Pensacola)
$675** single occupancy
$475** double occupancy
* vans depart from Houston only
