More exciting news from the Lisa Savage for US Senate campaign: we just made history by becoming the first Green campaign in Maine to raise over $100,000 in grassroots donations!
This milestone caps off an amazing month where Lisa was invited to two televised debates, endorsed by a former Democratic rival, and doubled the size of her campaign team with new staffers and hard-working volunteers. On top of that, Lisa’s webinar series “The Way Forward” is rapidly approaching 10,000 views!
Lisa’s name recognition and support are clearly growing across Maine, but to really make her a contender we need to keep building momentum up until the first debate on September 11 and beyond.
Will you contribute today to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 before the debate so we can get Lisa’s message out and build the grassroots support she needs to win?
As the only candidate in this historic ranked-choice voting race supporting broadly popular causes like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, ending endless wars, and getting big money out of politics, Lisa Savage can win this election if we get her message out to enough voters.
We have big plans to do just that, including hiring more staff in the field and advertising on radio and local media where we can get the most bang for our buck.
Lisa has attracted excellent media coverage, particularly a recent uptick in supportive letters to the editor, but the big-money establishment candidates are still getting the lion’s share of free media. To show the media and the voters that Lisa is a contender, we need to start running ads.
At the same time, our volunteer team is growing so quickly that we can barely keep up! We have folks across the state making calls, putting up campaign signs, waving banners, and safely tabling at farmer’s markets to spread the word about Lisa.
If we can hire more field staff, it will greatly increase our capacity to organize the grassroots volunteer force we need to beat the big-money candidates with people power.
To fund our outreach plan, here’s what we need to raise by the first debate:
$1000 for 300 #RankLisaFirst campaign signs
$1300 for prime-time radio ads
$2000 for 1 month of ad space in 8 local newspapers
$2700 to hire a field staffer to organize volunteers
$3000 for TV ads during debate week
Please pitch in whatever you can now to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 by the first debate, so we can lay the groundwork to power Lisa to an upset victory!
Thank you for everything you do to help build this inspiring movement for people, planet, and peace.
With incredible supporters like you, we can win this race and make history!
