Last week, Quinnipiac release a poll showing the gubernatorial race between Ken Cuccinelli and Terry McAuliffe to be extremely close, with Cuccinelli currently leading 40 percent to 38 percent. While it’s still extremely early, many believe this will be a very close race. Although Terry McAuliffe has had so little involvement in Virginia politics that he couldn’t name the positions in the Virginia governor’s Cabinet, we know he’ll be able to raise a ton of cash from outside Virginia. To beat him, we’ll need to remind voters one at a time through true grassroots organizing that Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate with the deep understanding of Virginia government and the policies best suited to create jobs that Virginia needs and expects in its governors.
This means that we need your help in our grassroots activities — which will be plentiful over the course of 2013 — to win in 2013.
If you have some time, come out and help us this week and over the coming weeks in our grassroots efforts. Also, just a reminder, that the deadline to sign up as a delegate to the 2013 RPV State Convention from Alexandria is this Thursday, April 4, so please be sure to get your delegate forms in on time.
This Saturday, April 5, join the Cuccinelli for Governor campaign and Republicans from around the 8th District for a phone bank in support of the campaign. This will be a fun way to spend some time with fellow Republicans and to lay the groundwork for the fall campaign by beginning the early work of contacting voters on behalf of Ken Cuccinelli. This is very important work — while Terry McAuliffe is running around the country trying to raise money from wealthy liberals, we’ll be doing true grassroots work and preparing the ground for the fall election.
The Cuccinelli campaign sees the 8th District as being important to do well in for a statewide victory, and so is starting early with this special 8th District phone bank. Let’s show the Cuccinelli campaign that the 8th District is ready to fight for victory!
The phone bank will be held this Saturday, April 5, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the Arlington County Republican Committee headquarters, 405 S. Glebe Road, in Arlington (map). There will be refreshments. Please join Republicans from all over the 8th District for this event! To RSVP or with questions, contact Erika Dyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also see the man himself, Ken Cuccinelli, at the Fairfax County GOP headquarters, 4246 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax (map), on Saturday morning at 10:30 am as they launch their Neighborhood Knock program. You can go see our next governor, go door knocking, then come to the phone bank!
