All systems GO for Ron Paul blimp

Backers of the Favorite Son have managed to raise $200K to launch the blimp. Now they want to raise $350K by Dec. 21 to keep it in the air through the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 8.

The plan for the "Ron Paul Blimp Tour" calls for the blimp to star in rallies in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday and in New York City on Wednesday and Thursday, before arriving in Boston on Friday after flying over Worcester. The blimp is to appear at a rally in Boston next Saturday, then play a key role in a fund-raising event the day after timed with the Boston Tea Party: Tea is to be dumped from the blimp into Boston Harbor. The first rally in New Hampshire is scheduled for Dec. 18.
