Share this with your grass roots advocates to show them how much power they CAN have. Remember that House Majority Leader U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor of VA was canned in a primary in 2014.
From The NY Times today:
“The uprising that beat Cantor was born of anger from voters like Randy Wingfield, 54, who owns a painting contracting business. He said he had written to Mr. Cantor several times asking for help and had not received a reply.”
That’s why voters dumped Cantor. Every member of Congress saw that event and it reinforced the basic rule: You want to get reelected you must keep your constituents happy, you must respond to them.
Building a committed energetic grass roots network requires persistent education and motivation delivered in different ways such as direct email, YouTube Video… even snail mail.
