CLF field staff and over 500 volunteers aim to make 100,000 voter contacts in key districts
WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, announced it will hold its first “Super Saturday” in 17 congressional districts nationwide on October 7. The efforts, led by CLF field staff and over 500 volunteers, will consist of door-to-door activity and phone calls to engage and build relationships with voters in key districts. CLF aims to make 100,000 voter contacts in a single day. View a map and list of CLF’s 17 field offices here.
“The fact that our team will personally contact 100,000 voters in one day, across 17 districts over a year out from the midterm elections, is a testament to CLF’s seriousness and commitment to protecting the House Republican majority in 2018,” said CLF Executive Director Corry Bliss. “With a data-driven field program, CLF is engaging voters early and often on the issues they care about most and sharing how their member of Congress is working on their behalf. By investing in data and a ground game, CLF has time to build real relationships and earn voters’ trust, both of which will pay dividends a year from now.”
CLF is the first super PAC to invest and launch a data-driven national field operation targeting congressional districts. Since February, CLF has been opening field offices and implementing unique, full-fledged campaigns with the goal of building relationships with voters in key districts across the country. Each field office is led by a full-time staffer and hundreds of volunteers and interns who door-knock and phone bank on a daily basis. To date, the field team has made over2.5 million voter contacts. CLF has pledged to raise and spend $100 million to protect the House Republican majority in the 2018 midterms.
