Well, this is my 1st diary in almost 3 years.
And it may not be a great one, but I needed to get this message out.
This week, Organizing for America held two phonebanks for Martha Coakley here in East Texas. Typically, we have been phone banking on behalf of health care reform -- however, our focus is on Massachussetts!
We held our first phone bank of the week on Tuesday in Marshall, Texas. For those of you unfamiliar with East Texas, Marshall is the hometown of Bill Moyers and the home area of Lady Bird Johnson
Our second phone bank was held on Thursday in Longview, Texas
In all, we made 304 calls to Massachussetts to get out the vote for Martha Coakley through these two phone banks.
So what's my point?
Well, East Texas may be know for many things, but being a Democratic hotbed is not one of them.
Yes, East Texas is a very conservative Republican area.
My congressman is Louis Gohmert, who is as bad as it gets.
But we continue to fight. We fight for health care reform.
And now, we are fighting to make sure that the Massachussetts Senate Seat remains in Democratic hands
We will have folks here in East Texas calling from home through election day.
So if we can organize here in East Texas for Martha Coakley, as conservative Republican as it gets, then we can organize anywhere!
So let's get the vote out folks!
Let's make Martha Coakley the next US Senator from Massachussetts
