Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) Powered By People:
If you’ve signed up to a phone bank with us before, you know that we have a little secret surprise at the end of each shift.
After Beto and our Powered by People volunteers are finished calling thousands of Texans, we do a little random drawing, and two of our volunteers receive a special gift – homemade cookies from Beto himself!
Just last night, Beto baked fresh triple chocolate chip cookies for tonight’s phone bank. RSVP now to attend tonight’s phone bank and see if you’re one of our lucky volunteers! Not only could you potentially receive delicious cookies from Beto, but you’ll also be helping 7 amazing State House candidates connect with voters in their district.
In 2018, we watched as amazing Texas State House candidates lost their races by less than 500 votes. We can’t let that happen again. That’s why we need you at tonight’s phone bank, to reach as many voters in these State House districts as possible.
Can’t make tonight? No problem – we have a phone bank on Saturday that will help just as much. It’s our last voter registration phone bank before Texas’ October 5th deadline, and we’re trying to hit our goal of registering 100,000 voters. You can sign up for that here!
By committing to spend just 2.5 hours calling voters across Texas, you can do your part in making sure that what happened in 2018 doesn’t happen again. We can win these seats. We can register 100,000 new Democratic voters in Texas. We can win a Democratic majority in the State House. We just need your help.
Whether you’re signing up because you want some cookies or because you feel like now’s the time to step up and help save Texas (and the country), we’re excited to have you join us tonight or Saturday.
Thanks for doing your part,
