Lt. Govs Mandela Barnes (D. WI) & Garlin Gilchrist (D. MI) Help PCCC's GOTV Efforts In Wisconsin

2 min read

Received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee:

We’ve seen HUGE and GROWING energy in our weekly PCCC phone banks with the Biden campaign. Last week, we had over 500 volunteers calling voters!!

Tonight we are thrilled to be joined by two top progressive rising stars — the Lieutenant Governors of key battleground states: Wisconsin’s Mandela Barnes and Michigan’s Garlin Gilchrist. You won’t want to miss this!

Can you join us TONIGHT to GOTV — GET OUT THE VOTE — making calls to Wisconsin voters at 7pm ET?

We don’t need to remind you how close states like Wisconsin were in 2016.

Elizabeth Warren tells PCCC members, “This is the time to reach down deep and do whatever we can to make sure we win. We’ve got to leave nothing in the locker room.”

Since August, we’ve made hundreds of thousands of calls with the Biden campaign highlighting bold progressive positions like expanding Social Security, cancelling student debt, and bold action on climate. We’ve heard from progressive champions in the Senate and House like Elizabeth Warren, Pramila Jayapal, Ed Markey, and Ayanna Pressley.

Garlin and Mandela both have deep organizing backgrounds. Garlin was a progressive blogger, worked at MoveOn, and served as Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology for the city of Detroit. Mandela organized in many Wisconsin and national organizations. He attended our PCCC candidate training as he ran for Lieutenant Governor!

Can you help us get out the vote in Wisconsin and win big in 2020??

YES! I will make calls tonight to voters tonight at 7pm with Mandela Barnes and Garlin Gilchrist!

NO. I can’t make it tonight but I can provide a grassroots donation to help progressives win — and ensure a Democratic victory.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.
