CLF field staff and 5,500 volunteers aim to make 500,000 voter contacts nationwide
WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today announced it will hold its fourth Super Saturday on September 29, 2018. The Super Saturday efforts will emphasize CLF’s unprecedented field program and will be supported by over 5,500 volunteers. Outreach activities will consist of door-to-door canvassing and phone banking to engage with voters in 40 field offices nationwide.
“In February of 2017, CLF launched a hyper-targeted and data-driven field program that has grown to 40 field offices nationwide and resulted in over 24 million voter contacts to date,” said Corry Bliss, CLF Executive Director. “With less than 40 days until Election Day, CLF is hosting its fourth Super Saturday, contacting 500,000 targeted voters in key congressional districts to inform them how their member of Congress is working for them. CLF’s unprecedented field program has proven to be a major factor this election cycle, and we will continue to increase our efforts as Election Day nears.”
This election cycle, CLF took the unprecedented step as a super PAC to implement a national field program focused on having ongoing conversations with voters about their top issues. Since February 2017, CLF has opened 40 field offices and made over 24 million voter contacts to date. Each office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.
CLF held its third Super Saturday on July 28, 2018, surpassing its goal of 400,000 voter contacts in more than 30 field offices nationwide.
