We had a very hardworking staff, but in particular, we had AMAZING vols who came in even when they were sick to make phonecalls. Jeff said awhile back that the vols for the campaign were the heart and soul of the campaign.
Thanks! Jeff is heading to HQ in just a minute to rally the troops for the last night before the election. It's amazing to see all the volunteers show up to canvass in this crazy weather we're having. It's truly inspiring!
If we can turn out the vote, we're gonna win this thing!
Merkley definitely has the momentum in the race for the Oregon Senate seat. But, that just means we're going to be hit even harder by the rightwing attack machine. Merkley is getting hit with a ton of robocalls, and the rightwing groups are spending millions airing attack ads. We're going to have to work doubly hard to counter these smear tactics and make sure our message gets out to voters.
If there are any MYDD readers who live in Oregon, please consider volunteering for Merkley. We have 10,000 volunteer shifts we need to fill. Please help us elect Jeff if you have some extra time. Thanks!
This is so wonderful for Merkley! Smith has been airing misleading ads featuring Obama. Now, that Obama aired this ad, there will be no question in the minds of Oregonians who Obama supports for Senate.
Al Gore is loved by folks in the NW (like me!), last time he came to Oregon, his event sold out really fast. We're holding this Friday's event at the Oregon Convention Center, so there should be enough room for everybody.
