DCCC Announces Mobilizing for Change: A National Day of Action
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced today it was sponsoring Mobilize for Change: A National Day of Action on July 26, 2008 - marking 100 days until Election Day. Mobilize for Change: A National Day of Action will boost House Democratic campaigns' efforts to recruit additional volunteers to phone bank and canvass congressional districts across the country. The House campaign that has the most volunteers will win a fundraising email sent on their behalf to our 3 million person strong list.
"Mobilize for Change: A National Day of Action is an exciting way for campaigns to boost their volunteer base," said DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen. "The DCCC is committed to reaching voters across the country with our message of change and has begun contacting voters earlier than ever before. By starting earlier, Democrats are reaching voters that are not yet being fully bombarded by political messages, which we know from our three special election wins is critical to our success."
The scope and effectiveness of the DCCC's voter contract program this cycle is unprecedented for House campaigns. The DCCC's 2008 voter contact programs began in November 2007 and have already resulted in more than two million voter contacts (door knocks and phone calls). The DCCC tested the effectiveness and improved its enhanced voter contact programs with each of the special elections Democrats won in IL-14, LA-06, and MS-01. The programs are on track to do more than 13 million voter contacts for the cycle in more than 50 districts.
The winner of the Mobilize for Change: A National Day of Action contest will be announced next week.
