Your Turn!

Now it’s your turn!

People powered politics is this year’s kryptonite for incumbents. People powered means you. These campaigns not only appreciate and use volunteers, but volunteers are in fact the driving force of their organizations. We have already seen two first time candidates defeat incumbents, Ned Lamont and now Jamie Raskin crushed MD State Senate President Pro Tempore Ida Ruben by what appears will be 30 points.

Now it’s Virginia’s turn, Team Hurst, using people powered politics has already won a tough primary forAndrew Hurst but we’re going after the top of the food chain of the corrupt GOP Congress, Mr. Tom “I’m not really a moderate” Davis himself. But we need your help.

In case you haven’t heard, we’re coordinating with the Webb campaign up north in the 11th district so that Jim can focus more on Southern Virginia were he’s able to turn Republicans over to our side. So we need to do double the work now.

Below you will find the info that you need to help us take back the House, one District at a time.

In Prince William County here is a message from one of our organizers.

We will be doing phone banks tonight at the Dale City headquarters between 5-9 tonight, as we do every Monday and Wednesday nights. The Dale City Headquarters is here:

4326 Dale Blvd., Suite 6
Woodbridge, VA 22193
This is on the second floor in the strip mall next to Pitkin's Hardware right after the intersection with Minneville Rd. And you don't have to show up at 5:00 and stay the full 4 hours, just come when you can and give a couple hours of your time tonight or next week.
We also are going door-to-door on Saturday from 11:00 - 2:00 and Sunday from 11:00 – 3:00 in the Occoquan District. We are meeting at:
