Update on AG race from FCRC + Veterans Day message from E.W. Jackson
From Fairfax County Republican Committee Chairman Jay McConville
November 10, 2013
Dear Team Fairfax:
With over 2 million votes cast, the Attorney General’s race is down to a margin of less than 100 votes. As of this morning, Mark Obenshain remains in the lead. This historically close race is far from over, however, as people who have cast a provisional ballot can still come in and plead their case to have their vote counted. In Fairfax County alone there are 492 such cases.
The FairfaxGOP surged mightily to help with the vote canvass, and I thank you all for your amazing response and support. At times we had TOO MANY VOLUNTEERS, which is a great problem to have. I know some were not able to participate, even though they made the effort, but think of it this way: Fairfax over-achieved and we did our job.
Now our job is GOTV. We must find the provisional voters who support Mark Obenshain and get them to the Government Center to plead their case. Can you help?
If you can go door-to-door over the next few days or assist at the Fairfax County Government Center identifying these provisional voters as they come to provide additional evidence to support their case, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And of course, it goes without saying, this extended campaign costs money. If you can help with a donation of any amount, please do.
You can donate here.
Thank you again for your great support and hard work. Let’s take this over the finish line with a Victory for Mark Obenshain as Virginia’s next Attorney General.
