With Massachusetts voters going to the polls on Tuesday, the race for the Senate seat once held by Ted Kennedy has devolved into a quagmire for once-confident Democrats. This state, one of the most Democratic in the nation, has become a national battleground as Republican Scott Brown has built a strong coalition behind his Senate candidacy, boasting overwhelming support from Republicans and Independents, as well as many rank-and-file labor union members and Democrats.
National observers have declared the race a toss-up and many polls are showing Brown creeping into the lead in recent days, in spite of a late barrage of vicious and personal attacks by Democrats.
While the Obama team made a last-minute decision to try to salvage the situation with a flurry of last-minute appearances by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton (seeing the Clintons having to come bail Obama’s agenda out is rather ironic), they’re not the only ones rushing to this fight. Numerous South Carolina Republicans are engaging in all-out efforts to support Brown’s surging campaign efforts, including :
The campaigns of Nikki Haley and Alan Wilson, as well as State Rep. Shannon Erickson and Congressman Joe Wilson, have sent numerous emails to their supporters, telling them how to donate and join the Brown campaign’s Call-From-Home program.
Numerous county GOP chairs, including Lin Bennett from Charleston County, Moye Graham from Clarendon County, and Glenn McCall from York County, who have been organizing phone banks and recruiting home callers.
Lt. Governor Andre Bauer, who traveled to Massachusetts to campaign for Brown on the ground.
Even if you can't make it there to help in person, the Call-From-Home campaign is a great way YOU can sign up to join these efforts. Go to www.brownforussenate.com and sign up to get your targeted calling list.
It's Mass Hysteria and there's still time to do your part.
