"In sum: if you're not in a swing state, get your butt to nearest one if you care who wins. Old school knife fighting's going to settle this." - Ben Domenech, Heartland Fellow
I think that tweet from Ben Domenech sums up the state of this race very well. This thing is close, and it's hand to hand combat the rest of the way.
A knife fight is described as a violent physical confrontation between two or more combatants. I'd say that pretty accurately describes the tone of this race right now. President Obama and Governor Romney don't like each other that much; and their visions for this country? Well, those two opposing visions despise each other.
It's precisely those competing visions that we must take to the doorsteps of voters in Oklahoma--and if you can commit the time--to the doorsteps of swing voters in a swing state.
Multiple busloads of Okie's traveled to Colorado this past weekend with American for Prosperity. They contacted over 12,000 voters in a state that is a statistical dead heat.
If you were hoping to make it to Colorado, don't worry, the State Republican Party will be taking a team to walk households from October 28th through November 1st, and it won't cost you a dime. Spots are going fast though, so if you are interested please contact our HQ ASAP and we can get you all the details.
The yard work and multiple kid events can wait...I need you helping our local candidates or jumping on a bus to a swing state. We have an old school knife fight on our hands and we can't afford to lose.
