Five Days and Counting! We're coming down the final stretch!

By Ryan Crane, Fairness Fund Organizer

Just five days until the election! The tension and excitement is palpable as we learned more about how hard the opposition has been working. Burgmeier's campaign has been running TV ads and mailers, and the other two candidates are doing their part to engage as well.
Today we were preparing door hangers that will tell voters what precinct they can vote in on election day. And even though it rained virtually all day, we still had numerous volunteers step up and collect absentee ballots from folks who were procrastinating.
Dedication and hard-work seem to be the theme on the ground here, and it is inspiring to see how many Iowans are working for Mr. Hanson. I feel good to be part of what I'm sure will be the winning team.
But, like I said at the top, the opposition has seemed to come alive and is now finally working as hard as we are. And as many folks know, Republicans are known for turning out at the polls in large numbers. While we are excited and poised to do well, the next five days are probably the most important of the entire election. So please stay plugged in and help us win this!

PS - We're almost to $7,000 and the thermometer keeps moving up! Help us reach our goal of $10,000 by midnight tonight! Just click on the thermometer on the right!

  1. Hi Ryan, I'm a co-host of the Des Moines Drinking Liberally chapter. I know we're coming down to the final days before this special election. If there's anything I can ask my chapter to help you with, please get in touch. I'm putting together an email with this week's events to drum up support.
