BATTLEGROUND STATE UPDATE: MICHIGAN
There sure has been a lot of talk about Michigan lately, mostly coming from Democrats who want to demotivate our volunteers as we enter the final stretch to a Romney presidency.
Let me make this clear…Mitt Romney is NOT pulling out of Michigan.
Just know this…The Romney-Ryan team is in Michigan to win.
The Michigan team is working around the clock in more than 20 offices statewide as you read this.
· Paul Ryan will be coming to Michigan on October 8th!
· The biggest rally of the Romney Michigan campaign just took place in Oakland County, where Mitt, Paul and Ann were met by more than 9,000 excited supporters.
· Tuesday, Jeb Bush drew an overflow crowd in Livonia campaigning for the Romney-Ryan ticket. And Chris Christie is on the way.
· Volunteer excitement is so great that we are ADDING NEW OFFICES in Michigan.
· Nearly ONE MILLION voter contacts already this cycle.
Simply put: Michigan is in play.
And, don’t take my word for it. The Democrats are getting worried.
· Vice President Biden has campaigned in Michigan three times in the last month.
· Jill Biden will be here campaigning during Super Saturday this weekend.
· Leading Democrats have been sounding the alarm that their team needs to get it in gear.
One, former Democratic Governor Jim Blanchard, told MLive: “I think it'll be a very close race…I hear too many people who are not either aware of what Obama has done or they're flirting with the idea of somebody new.”
The Romney/Ryan campaign is moving full speed ahead and we are counting on YOU to help put Michigan in the victory column.
You may have received a call from Paul Ryan last night asking for your help this Super Saturday. He and hundreds of volunteers have been reaching out across Michigan to sign up folks to walk door-to-door this Saturday.
With a few hours of work, you can help the Republican ticket and have a chance to meet Chris Christie! With 150 doors knocked on Saturday, you can qualify for a ticket to an upcoming reception with Governor Christie in Michigan.
You can be the difference in this election. The Romney-Ryan Victory ground program is in the middle of a national voter contact competition with other battleground states and your efforts will put us over the top.
Door-to-door programs are operating in every county, so just go to mi.tt/mobilizing to sign up for a shift!
On behalf of Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan, thank you so very much for all you do for the campaign.
Please, pass this on to your friends and families.
