Tea Party Express Mobile Phone Bank Bus Successfully Embarks on 81-Day GOTV Campaign
Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express launched its newly debuted Mobile Phone Bank Bus this weekend on an 81-Day Get-Out-the-Vote campaign that aims at engaging and educating conservative voters in the November 6th election. The tour will stop in 23 states that are the key battlegrounds in the 2012 election.
Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “The enthusiasm we are seeing is overwhelming. It shows that the false narrative of the tea party’s demise is just wishful thinking from the left. Unlike in 2010 when the election was only driven by frustrated voters getting out to the polls, in 2012 we are seeing that those frustrated are now experience and motivated activists working to also get their neighbors and friends to the polls. This bus tour campaign will accomplish a grassroots-led phone-from-home program that will allow motivated tea party activists the opportunity to engage in the political process.”
The first part of the tour will focus on recruiting and organizing an army of grassroots activist that will commit to participate in an extensive phone-from-home program. As the election approaches, this program will be activated and will aim to make the millions of calls required to get tea party fiscal conservatives out to vote.
The Mobile Phone Center Bus will give local tea party volunteers an opportunity to utilize the state-of-the-art technology to make calls recruiting activists to get involved. The bus is equipped with 15 workstations, each with its own laptop and phone. The GOTV campaign will travel the nation from now until the election with the goal of reactivating the passion and excitement that was so powerful in 2010.
