Help Ron Paul Win South Dakota (Urgent Request)Submitted by Skyorbit on Sun, 04/08/2012 - 22:07
Update New Daily Paul Thread here
Hi. My name is Tracy Saboe. Most of you i think know me. I was very active in the 2008 Campaign. Current Polling has Ron Paul actually leading in SD, so it's just a matter of getting boots on the ground to make sure his supporters show up.
Right now, we have an urgent request. We're need to raise funds to send mailers to the various 3rd parties in South Dakota (all of which are closely alined with Ron Paul's positions.) The Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party, and the Reform Party.
We're just going to mail them out ourselves so we have a chip-in set up. We're only needing about $2,000 for this. And then, after we get this project done, we're going to be sending mailers to Republicans in low population density counties. In total for everything we're probably needing about $20,000, but for now, this is the most urgent because it's more time sensitive and these are much easier converts.
We did this 4 years ago, and I personally know of many people who changed their registration specifically to vote for ron Paul as a result. This time, with him actually having a possibility of winning with a brokered convention, I believe it'll be even more effective.
Please donate whatever you can.
We've been able to cut some expenses and get a bulk rate, so we've been able to cut our expenses down to about $1,300 instead.
I also had a very generous donor mail me a check for $250, so with that, we only need about $300 more to go and we'll have this completed.
We're stuffing envelopes Sunday. If anybody wants to donate anything more to help us cover costs it would be greatly appreciated.
In addition to this we've bought booths at several events around the state, and I just made an ad buy in our Local TidBits for $200, so we're trying to recoup costs from other projects as well.
UpDate II: We've gotten these out. We ate about $300 of the cost ourselves. Now we're moving on to phase two: Mailers to rural Republicans.
