Tueaday 10/30 Call to Action

One week left! Pour yourself a big bowl of Get-Out-The-Vote today and get to work. Remember when Afton’s own Jessie Diggins won gold in cross country skiing at the winter Olympics? Remember how hard she pushed herself because the race was so close? I want you to keep that in your mind over the next seven days. Be like Jessie Diggins. Here’s a clip to remind you of how awesome she is. https://youtu.be/fgJ1OyLoZog
From Schooley on Twitter: Eventually we will look back and either say, “The corruption was so blatant how did anybody think he’d get away with it?” or “The corruption was so blatant how did he get away with it?” Kind of depends on next Tuesday.
Here’s what you can do to get Democrats a win at the polls next Tuesday in order of importance.
Door Knock and Phone Bank
Campaigns are combining forces in a big push to Get Out The Vote. Minnesota’s DFL is coordinating door knocking and phone banking events throughout Minnesota. Sign up here for as many times as you can handle.
Or check out this page to be part of the last big push. https://thelastweekend.org/?source=MN02
You can also go to a candidates website and sign up to volunteer there. Are you lucky enough to be well represented in a safe district? Consider giving your time to Tina Smith, Keith Ellison, Julie Blaha, or Steve Simon.
