MESSAGE FROM STEVE DASBACH, Jo's Campaign Manager:
It’s hard to comprehend just how fast-paced a Presidential campaign is once you’ve won the nomination.
In the 48 hours after Jo won the nomination, over 5,000 new supporters signed up, including over 1,000 new volunteers, and over 600 new donors. All unsolicited.We had to expand our communications team from one … to two … to three … to four in less than a week to keep up with the explosion of interest. Jo is doing four to seven appearances or interviews per day, six days a week -- including local newspapers, radio, and TV, plus national outlets like the Washington Post, NPR’s Weekend Edition, and John Stossel.
Meanwhile, social media is growing like crazy. Jo’s Facebook following has grown from 2,000 people to over 66,600 in just two weeks! Twitter has grown from 1,500 to over 32,200! Two articles on Fox News and CNN have referenced our social media posts, as well as countless smaller media sources. Our social media effort has reached 5 million people! And we've had over 1 million shares, reactions, or comments! Virtually all of which are enthusiastic about Jo’s campaign! Our social media director has set up facebook pages in every state and is managing a 160+ volunteer army promoting the Jorgensen/Cohen ticket.
And those aren’t the only volunteers. More than 2,000 volunteers have already signed up, unsolicited, with more joining daily. If you volunteered and haven’t heard from us yet, send an email to [email protected] and our volunteer coordinator will hook you up. Volunteering is a great way to help spread Jo’s principled and practical message.
But donations are just as important. We've raised more than $130,000 since the convention. That's a great start, but we must accelerate. Our goal is to raise more money than the Johnson campaign. And put far more resources than any previous Libertarian campaign into direct voter outreach by keeping our overhead low. This is how we grow our base of support, start showing up in polls, and get into the debates. Please consider sending the most generous donation you can today! You can donate by clicking here.
Thank you. Now, let's find all those bystander libertarians and disaffected voters.
