The People Trump Trump: Details for this weekend. Let’s Do It.

10.27 endorsersIt is almost over. Links to lot’s of actions & to motivate you:  a riveting video of a voter excoriating a GOP Congressman for his vote against ACA, about the voter’s wife and kids with pre-existing conditions & about his promise for payback Nov 6. Inspiring.

Final Weekend Events!  Let’s Do It!!! Blue!

Retake Our Democracy volunteers have completed hundreds, possibly thousands of calls and knocked on hundreds of doors….for Xochitl, for Abbas Akhil, for Stephanie, for Steve and for the entire Democratic ticket. We are all running on fumes, ready for this to be over, but let’s end with a bang, not a whimper. There are so many races that will be decided narrowly enough that your time and the time of 1-2 of your friends could be the difference.

This is our last call for volunteers so please look this over as there are ways to help Abbas, Xochitl, Stephanie and the ticket, there is a rally at Meow Wolf tonight at 6pm Martin, Ben Ray, Michelle, and Maggie. Get pumped tonight; be active Saturday and Sunday and Sunday.

Tuesday morning, I’ll send out the complete National and Statewide scorecard so you can figure out exactly what the results mean. I had intended to send it sooner, but I have included the most recent polling data and the polls are changing each day.

Abbas Akhil (HD 20):  This could be the most important House race in 2018. Let’s elect a climate scientist who also believes in science. Can’t canvass, they need drivers; can’t drive, they need callers.  Let’s Do It.  First a note from Neri, Abbas’ campaign manager. It should inspire you:

“Hi Friends—I’m managing Abbas’ campaign and I want to tell you where things stand and why your help these final few days matters. We expect turnout to be around ~ 63% or 11,100. There are 19,306 registered voters in HD20 (39% Dem, 35% Republican and 26% Declined to State or DTS).

In 2016, turnout was 13,033 (41% Dem, 39% Republican and 20% DTS). Right now, as of yesterday, 6,877 voters have voted (45% Dem, 39% Republican and 15% DTS).  With your help we’ve had thousands of conversations with voters and have identified hundreds of hundreds of voters who say they are voting for Abbas.

I can make a case for why it looks promising going into Tuesday’s election—and, of course we start with a terrific candidate. We’ve also had a lot of support—people vouching for Abbas, contributing, and working on the campaign. Our communication program and mailers have been solid. But we need to finish strong because the margin will be razor thin. If you’ve got a few hours this weekend, please spend it with us. Help us as we push those final few voters to go vote and vote for Abbas.

See below for how to help – come by tomorrow to canvass with the Mayor @ 9am. Email me to let me know if we can expect you. 

On behalf our team, THANK YOU.  Neri, Marit, Doug, Cara

The list is good through Sunday and you can bet there will be another list on Sunday. Let’s Do It.

Call for Stephanie.  If you go to SGR’s campaign site and go to Volunteer and sign up, Sharon will contact you and give you the link and phone bank code. Once you’ve got that, the rest is easy. Click here for times, dates and actions (canvass/phone banking). 

Xochitl Torres Small.  Opportunities to canvass for Xochitl in Los Lunas, Las Cruces, and Grants and a link to call from home.

Xochitl’s campaign has gone over the numbers and they say that if we turn out Las Cruces, we win. Canvassing is the most effective way to turn out votes and Las Cruces is the single most effective place for us to canvass. So we’re chartering a bus to take volunteers from Albuquerque to Las Cruces on Sat, Nov 3.
It’s a charter bus with WiFi, restrooms, power outlets, and A/C, and there will be training and Q&A on the bus, so even first-time volunteers will get everything they need to volunteer comfortably and confidently. And we’ll make sure everyone has a partner for their canvass.You should expect to leave Albuquerque at 8am and return by 10pm. Tickets for the bus are available here: . The times currently on the ticket page are temporary placeholders and will be updated shortly.  This bus will sell out soon. Tickets are $5.

More Canvassing for Xochitl and the entire Democratic Ticket.

I often include video to illustrate a point. Today, we are tired. Our brains know we can’t rest, but our spirit is pretty much pooped. Geoff Ginter, a certified medical assistant from Pine Beach and whose wife had cancer, took to the microphone to angrily confront Congressman MacArthur at a Willingoboro, N.J. town hall meeting. MacArthur is credited as reviving the Republican health care bill.
This guy goes on for about 10 minutes. Standing 3 feet from e starts sort of slow but man he builds to a point where the audience is standing and cheering him on. He ends by making a promise to get his Congressman out of office for his vote on ACA. Geoff’s anger is focused on healthcare, but we each have our own anger weather it is refugees, tax cuts, social security, college costs, indigenous rights, or just the moral bankruptcy of this regime. This guy does it right. Very worth a few minutes. He will inspire you.
