Seeing that our strategy for making the top two on June 5 is simply to get at least 16% of the vote and surpass the Republican turn-out we decided to get the word out to all Sanders voters and Greens that Andy is the North Coast’s Our Revolution endorsed Berniecrat in the race and Huffman was a Hillary Superdelegate who voted against Bernie at the Democratic convention. So we prepared this 2 1/2-minute pitch for a robo-call to 25,000 homes. It reached 80% of them.
Since 53% of the Democrats in CA-2 voting in the 2016 presidential primary voted for Bernie Sanders we used the voter roll to select every Democrat and Green who voted in that primary who lives in Marin County, about half the Democrats and Greens who voted in the 2016 presidential primary from CA-2.
We’re also fundraising over the next 48 hours to reach the rest of the district this weekend. With your help we can do that!
June 2, 2018 Update:
Today we also sent our pitch to the phones of most Humboldt County and Mendocino County Greens and Democrats who voted in the 2016 presidential primary!
Here is the recording and here is the text:
Hi. I’m Andy Caffrey and I’d like your vote to be our next Congressman.
The June 5th primary vote is about one thing: will a Republican or a Green Bernie Sanders Democrat make the November run-off against our incumbent who was a Hillary Clinton Superdelegate.
If you support Bernie’s political revolution then you want to support Andy Caffrey for House Representative now.
The BBC named me a World Historic Figure for launching the global anti-GMO movement.
I’ll stop Monsanto just like I stopped Advanced Genetic Sciences in the Bay Area in 1987.
In the 2012 Congressional election I was the only candidate warning that the Republicans are dismantling our democracy. (And too many Democrats are letting them get away with it).
Now the same corporate hacks who promised to dismantle the EPA, the Department of Energy, and almost every other presidential cabinet agency, are running and gutting them.
If, like me, you want to see Bernie elected president in 2020, then you know it’s vital to elect a Bernie-friendly Congress, so when he becomes president he can actually get something done. So you’ll want to vote for Andy Caffrey for Congress on Tuesday.
I’m the only candidate in our district who signed the Contract for American Renewal, a signed commitment from me to you and everyone else in our district. Within six months of taking office, I’ll introduce legislation to accomplish eleven things including
Medicare for all and a 10% increase in social security benefits
A $15 minimum wage and free tuition at our public colleges and universities
A 20% cut in military spending and an end to the war in Afghanistan but a massive infrastructure program here back home in northern California and the Bay Area.
An end to corporate personhood and dramatic action to fight the climate crisis as a national security threat.
So join the electoral revolution with your vote on Tuesday for me, Andy Caffrey.
Oh, and if you like Jared, he doesn’t need your vote until November. He’ll make the run-off.
Your vote will determine if a greener Sanders Democrat will also be in the race, or a Republican who thinks the world is 6,000 years old and calls abortion human vivisection.
Please visit my web site at AndyCaffrey.org for much more information on how we can build a New Green America and to make your contribution.
Thank you very much for your time and your vote! Together we canbuild thriving, healthy, secure communities and families here in District 2.” hope you like my proposal for a new national slogan: “We’re Americans! We take care of each other!”
I’m looking out for you.
