Subject: On the ground
With just 16 days until the August 24 primary, it’s all hands on deck.
We know you have done so much already, but with so little time left, we can’t let up. I am telling you — what we do on the ground over the next week will be the difference between victory and defeat.
Our dedicated army of grassroots activists has been on the ground for months, but they need help to get the word out about Kendrick before next week’s primary. I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t so important. Will you join our team of volunteers?
Over the next 16 days, our volunteers are going to make over 120,000 phone calls and knock on over 65,000 doors. Together, they are making sure voters all across Florida know about the only real Democrat in this race — Kendrick Meek. They are also making sure voters know that Kendrick has been endorsed by papers all across Florida including the St. Petersburg Times, Palm Beach Post, Pensacola News Journal, Naples Daily News, and Sarasota Herald Tribune. The endorsements lauded Kendrick saying he has a “commitment to the state,” is “a loyal Democrat,” has a “grasp of the issues,” and “shares [Democrats’] ideas and beliefs.”
The bottom line is, the more undecided voters hear about Kendrick, the more they want to join our campaign. We need your help to reach these voters. But Florida is a big state, and we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. With tomorrow marking the start of Early Voting, the timing couldn’t be more critical.
Together, we can win on August 24, but you are part of our plan for victory. We can’t leave anything on the table.
P.S. Our field plan is just one part of our overall strategy. We have an aggressive TV buy planned, but we need to have the funding to implement it. It is critical we match our efforts on the ground with ads on the air. If you make a contribution today, not only will you help us raise critical funds, but you will also be automatically entered to win a chance to meet President Clinton at a private reception on August 16.
