How to win a day with McCain, trip to convention

Someone with a video camera and Republican leanings could win a trip to the Republican National Convention and a day on the campaign trail with Sen. John McCain.

(Although if the winner is from here, it wouldn’t be all that much of a trip, as the convention will be held in St. Paul from Sept. 1-4. Still, it would be cool to have access to the presidential candidate.)

Friday is the deadline for the contest, which calls for a video that’s two minutes long or less, explaining: “Why you are a Republican in 2008.”

(Democrats might argue that it won’t take anywhere near two minutes for that!)

Five finalists will be selected and the public will vote for the winner.

To upload your video, visit the official 2008 Republican National Convention YouTube page.
