DCCC Announces Fall Kickoff Campaign

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today announced their Fall Kickoff week in August to recruit thousands of volunteers and knock on hundreds of thousands of doors across the country to remind voters of the choice in this election between moving America forward or letting the Republicans bring back the exact same agenda of former President Bush. 

 

The Fall Kickoff will begin on August 21st with House Meetings throughout the week, where volunteers and neighbors come together for face-to-face discussions about what is at stake in this election and build an energized base of volunteers from the ground up.  On August 28th, the DCCC will sponsor a Nationwide Day of Action where volunteers will knock on more than 200,000 doors in some of the most competitive districts across the country.

 

"The DCCC Fall Kickoff will energize volunteers and voters across the country so we can keep America moving forward, not go back to the failed Bush economic policies of the past," said DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen.  "The DCCC is committed to reaching more people in districts across the country than ever before to talk to their neighbors at  doors and by phone about this election and to highlight the choice voters have at the polls.  Our Fall Kickoff will ensure we have a large and energized base of trained volunteers to communicate Democrats’ message and get out the vote, which is critical to our success in November."

 

The battle tested DCCC voter contact program has started earlier than ever before and is using new technologies and data-driven analysis to support our Frontline members and candidates.  The DCCC tested the effectiveness and improved its enhanced voter contact programs with each of the special election victories in NY-20, NY-23, and our 8-point victory in PA-12.  Working with State Parties across the country, field staff have been recruiting and training volunteers for the fall elections.  In turn, those volunteers are knocking on doors and making phone calls, talking to their friends and families about the importance of continuing to move the country forward.
