The past two weeks for the campaign have been absolutely phenomenal. We’ve been a part of many events, voter meetings, speaking engagements, and much more. As such, it’s become more difficult to blog consistently. Because of this blogging break, I wanted to update you on the recent news from our Campaign HQ on 21st Avenue South.
First off, we were shown great support with the Steve Gill “Gill Report” poll of TN-05 voters over the past 48 hours. At the end of the poll, we were blessed to win the poll with 31% of the total vote. Although unscientific, it shows a great deal of support for our campaign for the People. As we move closer to the GOP Primary election (Early voting July 16-31) on August 5th, we need to continue to build support, and results like these confirm that our message is resonating in the district.
Second, we are truly encouraged by the outpouring of support from folks that are ready for a Conservative Voice from this district, and consistently are reminded of the task at hand. We continue to see signs of a changing district ideologically. Many contributors/volunteers/supporters to our campaign are former contributors to current Rep. Jim Cooper. The disappointment and anger regarding the direction of America are remarkable in many ways.
As we move closer to the GOP Primary, please help us spread the word about our efforts in the Fifth District. We have Yard Signs in 3 sizes for use. We will continue hitting the neighborhoods in the district these next few weeks. If you wish to offer some time, let us know by email or phone. Bumper stickers for cars are a great option as well.
Finally, many of you have been supportive, and for that I am truly grateful. As we close out the second quarter at midnight, we will begin preparing our financial disclosures. If you have the means to do so, we ask that you consider making a contribution to our efforts. You do can so by clicking here. Any and all amounts (up to $2,400 per election) are accepted and truly appreciated. If that is not possible at this point, we hope you will consider doing so later this summer.
So, a small update, but an update nonetheless. As we continue to move forward, please keep the campaign, the staff and volunteers, and my family in your prayers.
