You can watch the news for announcements of "Bus Tours" etc. by the
President or Kerry/Edwards (you'll actually find protesters in "Free
Speech zones" near the event as well, so you can find both kinds of
shirts at major events - we had some Bushies at the Kerry event in
Philly and at the Scranton event with Kerry, Edwards, and Ben Affleck).
If you google properly you can get a schedule of cities and dates. Once
you have that, call the LOCAL Republican party organization for that
city or county and ask them about tickets for the public.

Oh, but you are so wrong Grasshoppah...

I came to the Kerry Campaign from the Dean Campaign. HOWEVER, I ran as
a Republican for State Assembly in NJ's General Election last year. As
a result, although I'm actively supporting and working for Kerry
(non-photo work) I'm also still an Honorary NJ Delegate to the
Convention. (yes, it is causing some interesting situations in my
party... ;-) )

Not really..

They'll likely wear t-shirts at things like convention-viewing
parties.. Delegates won't generally be in t-shirts.. The free-speech
zones at the convention will have both kinds of shirts as well.. I know
part of the West-Side Highway was beings set aside for that use too..

Hmmm.. If you write me an outline offlist of what you are doing I might
be able to find you people on both sides of the aisle willing to do it..

Generally, a NYC Press Pass, without a sponsoring media outlet, is ONLY
available after you've already had press images published in pretty
main-stream media.

Want to find Republican t-shirts? Head to any taping of any Fox show..
The people outside their morning show, or at Hannity and Colmes for
example.. Also, try hanging around outside the offices of WABC Radio..
