Florida & Nevada and an update on the Super Brochure mailingsSubmitted by RP Super Brochure on Sat, 01/07/2012 - 11:20
Everyone, lets figure out our next move with the Super Brochure project. But first, here is a recap on what I saw in Iowa:
We received endless phone calls from Iowans who received the Super Brochure who were so moved by what Ron Paul stood for that many of these new converts had us mail cases of brochures to Iowa so they could hand them out.
I cannot list all the names, but there were many, many thanks to all of us who mailed out the Super Brochures to Iowa voters. They said it made a huge difference in getting more people to vote for Ron Paul.
It was a clear from everyone whom I spoke with that the Super Brochure made an immense difference in votes for Ron Paul. I personally met and spoke with many who were not yet a part of the Ron Paul family who received the brochure and it caused them to vote for Ron Paul.
The Super Brochures were also being handed out at every Ron Paul appearance that I went to. (I went to all of them) At one Iowa high school appearance, the students were lined up holding the Super Brochures which Ron Paul was autographing for them.
It became very clear, we have all made a gigantic change for liberty and to help Ron Paul get elected.
SO, WHERE ARE WE TODAY:
We have finished mailing all the Super Brochures to South Carolina. Next up are Florida and Nevada.
Florida is a winner-take-all state in terms of delegates, but here is what may happen: If Ron Paul gets second in Florida, it will remain winner take all. If he were to come in first (seriously doubt this) then the GOP would make it a proportional allocation of delegates to undermine a Paul win.
Is Florida important enough to finish mailing the brochures to...? Yes, but it will be a big challenge unless people with more money come in to help us.
If we want to mail Florida, we have to finish it in 10 days. It would be a big challenge to complete 728,000 households in that period of time. So the question is: Do we try to finish Florida or should we put our focus into Nevada, which has just 182,000 households, which will be easier for us to finish and potentially win.
Since the Super Brochure appeals more to independent minded people, we would like to focus future brochure mailings on independents in upcoming states with open primaries / caucuses.
Would all of you weigh in and so we can all make a wise decision on state priority and how to proceed.
