Hello Party and Club leaders,
I have good news and I have bad news; The good news is the weather is
cooling down and more volunteers are starting to get engaged in the
block walking efforts. The bad news is that Republicans are way behind
the democrats in this effort. More bad news is that the statewide races
are way too close for us to sit on the sidelines any longer.
In case you haven’t heard or seen the polls, Beto is 7 points behind
Gov. Abbott, the AG race show the Democrat tied with Ken Paxton, The
Lt. Gov race shows the Democrat within 1 or 2 points from Dan Patrick,
The Railroad commissioners race for Wayne Christian and the democrat is
a 44%-40%. are you comfortable with numbers? I am not. Even though we
are in a RED area of the State, it’s our job to make sure we have high
voter turnout to counteract the liberal votes in the Metropolitan areas.
I am telling you firsthand that we have Republican (Huffines & West)
voters that are saying they’re not going to vote because they don’t
support Gov. Abbott. we all know that thinking only helps Beto and the
other socialist. More good news is….. I have a way that EVERYONE can
help. If you are a precinct Chair for your county, it’s your duty to
work your precincts. We need Voter registration drives set up and more
importantly, doors knocked on to have a face-to-face conversation with
targeted voters. Team Abbott is reaching out to Swing, Independent ,
undecided, and soft Democrat voters. We cannot do this without your

you can go out weeknights at 4–8p is prime time to catch folks’ home,
Saturday mornings are the best, 10a-1p and even Sundays at a 2–6-time
frame. I cannot sound the alarm any louder than right now. I will set
up an account for you on the Advantage mobile app and assign whatever
area you request. If you want to organize groups to go together, even
better. I can set up zoom trainings to get everyone trained on the app.
If you are not able to walk, maybe you can drive volunteers around, or
be a host for a group to meet at your house and walk in your
neighborhood. No county is too rural to knock on doors. I know I’ve
walked every one of them. Time is wasting, I’m ready to sign you up and
get you out the door. Please email me at Randerson@gregabbott.com or
call 678.977.1833 and I will send you everything you need. Thank you
for taking on the role of a leader in SD1 and your counties, now it’s
time for Leaders to LEAD!
