With less than 3 weeks until Election Day, the Lisa Savage for Senate campaign has become a whirlwind of activity, and we wanted to update you with some exciting recent highlights!
But first, a quick request: today is the FEC reporting deadline for 3rd quarter fundraising, and we’re getting close to $170,000 - an all-time record for a Maine Green campaign.
If you missed Lisa's birthday on the weekend, there's still time to make a belated birthday gift to her campaign!
Everything we do is made possible by your support - and we are doing a lot! Some highlights:
We’re also hosting a social media action training and #LisaForME Twitter Storm before the debate on Thursday - join us to help spread Lisa’s message on social media!
We’ve had some amazing media coverage in the past couple of weeks (not to mention all the fantastic letters to the editor!). Lisa has been featured in the Portland Press Herald, the New Yorker, two interviews with Maine Public Broadcasting (here and here), and the popular progressive podcasts Amped Up and the Jimmy Dore Show. Lisa also earned an enthusiastic endorsement from Mainer calling her “the real deal”.
Speaking of endorsements, they’ve continued to roll in: Maine DSA, Demand Universal Healthcare (DUH!), Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights, singer-songwriter Nellie McKay, former San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Matt Gonzalez, South Portland City Councilor April Caricchio (our new Assistant Communications Director), and former Maine Green Independent Party member of the Maine State House Ralph Chapman, are just some of our many recent endorsers.
Our organizing team and volunteers have been working tirelessly to spread Lisa’s message and get out the vote, from talking with voters at farmer’s markets to rain-or-shine bannering on busy streets across the state. Meanwhile, volunteers both in Maine and from out-of-state are busy making calls, sending texts, and using digital tools to get out the vote.
You can join our volunteer team no matter where you live!
On top of all this frenzy of campaigning, we’ve released a new 30-second TV ad on Lisa’s support for a Green New Deal to fight the climate crisis and revive the economy by creating good green jobs.
With thousands of Mainers already voting early, we’ve launched an ambitious get-out-the-vote plan that includes energetic campaigning around the state and ad campaigns in local media to promote our message on Medicare for All and a Green New Deal - two issues that have resonated strongly among voters we’ve talked with.
Here’s the thing: to keep up the pace and finish as strong as we can, we need to raise over $6,000 a week between now and Election Day. We can do it, but we need your help.
As always, everything we do is thanks to support from people like you. Thanks for all you do to build this inspiring movement for people, planet, and peace!
