Many of you are asking me online and in line at my book tour stops what's next for Huck PAC. Sarah and the team have been working hard on the next phase of development and I wanted to tell you about some of it today.
First, during Saxby Chambliss' runoff campaign we saw that Huck PAC supporters were able to make a real difference on the ground. With over 4,000 calls made in a period of days by a few hundred volunteers we made a real difference turning out the vote for Senator Chambliss. Moving forward we want to build on this effort and grow it nationally.
In the coming days we will form a National Volunteer Team for Huck PAC Our goal is to identify volunteers nationwide, organize into local groups and then assist Huck PAC endorsed candidates.
We will also begin asking for volunteers to serve as group leaders willing to take a leadership role in their community. These leaders will setup events, distribute literature, make calls, knock on doors and much more. Our goal is to have at least one Huck PAC group leader in every county in the nation by the end of 2009.
This is one part of our plans but is a very important part. We want to make a difference locally in the races of the candidates we are supporting (as we did with Saxby) and we believe having a volunteer team in place will make a big difference. I will blog about much more very soon.
Moving the cause forward into the New Year!
