Received this e-mail yesterday from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party:
Through Pennsylvania’s first ever Vote By Mail campaign, PA Dems are building a HUGE advantage that could make all the difference this fall. To date, more than 850,000 Democrats have signed up to vote from home—relative to just 400,000 Republicans.
Our 450,000+ ballot advantage has state Republicans on edge and has drawn attention from Reuters, who attributed the gap to Trump’s Vote By Mail conspiracy theories. They give him too much credit, though.
Our early mail-in ballot dominance is built entirely on Democratic organizing and enthusiasm!
“STATEWIDE, DEMOCRATS HAVE SENT TEXTS TO OVER A MILLION SUPPORTERS, LOGGED 500,000 CALLS, AND HOSTED OVER 1,200 ATTENDEES IN ONLINE TRAINING SESSIONS, ACCORDING TO THE STATE PARTY.” —REUTERS
PA Dems volunteers, partners, and candidates have already engaged millions of Pennsylvanians to get out the vote. And the work we’re all doing now will give our candidates a big head start in November.
That lead could vanish in an instant, though. Now that Republicans have seen our success, they’re certain to strike back in a major way, and Team Trump has nearly unlimited resources with which to do so.
