Our State Senate candidate is winning over Trump voters. Here's how:

Last edited Sat Oct 13, 2018, 07:08 PM - Edit history (1)

Today I drove for our D State Senate candidate so she could knock doors. She's challenging the incumbent who is an R woman who never knocked doors because she is well known in the area, her husband used to hold the seat, and they have a well known local business. Also, it has been a solid R district for 20 years.

This time we are neck and neck according to our polling and have the R's scared shitless. How? Because our candidate, a local city councilwoman, has been knocking doors since last winter (up to about 4000 door knocks just by herself and much of this is in rural areas with houses far apart), has been listening to voter concerns, and has been talking the bread and butter issues BIGTIME with healthcare, property tax burdens, and good high paying jobs being the largest issues.

She has had SO many Trump voters tell her they are voting for her and some have even said they are voting a straight Dem ticket.

First, many are disallusioned with Trump and sick of the circus. Next, their big issues are, again, healthcare, needing to reduce regressive property taxes, and jobs/income in this largely rural district.

It is about the bread and butter issues with healthcare front and center.
It is about tons of grassroots work.
It is about LISTENING.
It is about SHOWING UP!

She is fighting SO hard and hope we can win. Will be close, but she has a good chance.

1. That has been will always be how we Dems win back our State and

 

National offices. As a kid I remember a Guy by the name Warren Knowles driving up our mile long drive way in last October,just to introduce himself to my Parents and explain his policies and asked for their votes. And he became Governor of Wisconsin that year. Everyone that we knew,talked about how a Guy who bothered to take time to go farm to farm and introduce himself and asked for their votes.

6. Healthcare is a BIG deal.

I'm a healthcare voter. That's why I'm so happy it is on our platform and so many candidates are talking about it.

7. Yup. Probably the number one issue this cycle, along with jobs/wages and education.
