Live Blogging: Conference call with Gov. Perry

Just dialed into the conference call, but only music plays with a recorded message reminding us that, "the conference will begin when the speaker arrives."

Still waiting. Music never changes. Same recording.

The music stopped, but because I was disconnected.

Just dialed back in. Same music. Still waiting. Same recording.

Still just hearing music and the same recording...

One can only wonder what's going on. Still the same music and recording. The conference call was scheduled to begin at 7:00pm this evening. Comment or send a msg to @kayvsrick on Twitter if you know more about what's going on?!?

Just got disconnected again. Dialing back in.

Had to dial the conference call number a couple of times to get through. Either they are having major technical difficulties or Governor Perry and guests aren't available yet.

Sources within the Perry camp advise us that the conference call is still on, but they are experiencing some technical difficulties. Meanwhile, same music and recording.

The conference call that was scheduled to begin at 7pm still hasn't started. Same music. Same recording.

Looks like the conference call has been postponed. Details to follow.

New tweet from @GovernorPerry confirms the call has been postponed:
@mslinda25 Conference call tonight with @mqsullivan postponed to another day..... looks like they had a major technical malfunction...
An email from Michael Quinn Sullivan at Empower Texans sheds further light about the technical problem:
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the conference call this evening had to be cancelled this evening due to technical difficulties on our vendor’s end.

We hope to reschedule the call shortly.

Again, I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

Respectfully Yours,
Michael Quinn Sullivan
& the Team

The email was sent from Mr. Sullivan at 7:40pm, but ended up in many people's spam/bulk mail folder.
