Great news: the Lisa Savage for US Senate team absolutely blew past our ballot drive goal yesterday, with nearly 100 volunteers collecting over 9,000 signatures in a single day!
That means our campaign can now focus on reaching a million voters in Maine with our message of people, planet, and peace over profit - starting today. But after two hard months of putting everything we’ve got into getting on the ballot, we need your help.
While we were forced by circumstances to take an independent route to the ballot, our commitment to the Green Party and its transformative vision is as strong as ever.
Our volunteers heard loud and clear that Maine voters are eager to have a senator who is not beholden to corporate interests or corporate-funded parties.
Mainers want a new politics, the kind of positive, forward-thinking, innovative campaign made possible by ranked choice voting, where you can vote your hopes, not your fears.
In small towns and large, our campaign team got a warm reception. Voters are beginning to understand the new politics ranked choice voting makes possible.
Our message: do you want a senator who works for you? Or do you want a senator who works for party bosses, Wall Street banks, war profiteers, and fossil fuel companies? Do you want a senator who’s committed to Medicare for All? Or do you want a senator who wants to keep a pay-or-die system that bankrupts people when they get sick?
We’re asking people to vote for the candidate who most closely aligns with their values. Rank Lisa #1 - you can still rank a ‘safe’ choice as your #2 or #3 choice. People get it - and they’re excited for the new kind of politics that we’re offering.
Yesterday was the first big test for our campaign - and we passed it with flying colors by pulling in over 9,000 signatures in a single day.
Next comes the real challenge: building our capacity to reach the thousands upon thousands of voters we need to win this election and change the course of US politics forever.
Thank you so much for all you do to build our movement for the greater good.
