High energy in Harrisburg, Johnstown, West Chester
On Saturday, Pennsylvania Republicans joined thousands of volunteers around the country to make hundreds of thousands of voter contacts in an effort coined “Super Saturday.”
CENTRAL PA: Harrisburg
In Dauphin County today, an energized group of volunteers were joined by Governor Tom Corbett and Lt. Governor Jim Cawley who stressed just how important Victory operations and our early voter contact efforts are to electing Governor Romney and Republicans up and down the ballot this November.
They also reflected on their 2010 campaign and the big role these volunteer efforts played in their race. Governor Corbett emphasized the importance of direct voter contact and noted that he “spent three pairs of shoes on my first race.”
After thanking the crowd who came to hear them speak and volunteer, Governor Corbett and Lt. Governor Cawley both sat down to make voter contacts of their own in support of Governor Romney. CBS 21 was able to follow some of our volunteers and get a first-hand look at our voter outreach operation.
WESTERN PA: Johnstown
Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason and Congressional candidate Keith Rothfus (PA-12) were on hand in Cambria County today to officially open the Victory Office and welcome volunteers before they went out to hit the pavement.
Chairman Gleason is a longtime veteran of Pennsylvania politics and led the highly successful Victory operation in 2010, resulting in sweeping wins for Republicans in the Keystone State. Gleason said that “enthusiasm and support is on our side and Mitt Romney will lead us to victory in Pennsylvania.”
Keith Rothfus looks forward to bringing new leadership focused on creating jobs to Cambria County and the 12th congressional district. As an NRCC Young Gun, Rothfus will be working hard with Victory’s grassroots volunteers to win this critical race.
SOUTHEAST PA: West Chester
U.S. Congressman Jim Gerlach (PA-6) and U.S. Congressman Pat Meehan (PA-7) spoke to volunteers in Chester County during lunch after taking a break from what was a hot morning knocking on doors in Pennsylvania today.
Congressman Gerlach looks forward to working with Victory and our volunteers to turn out the vote for Governor Romney and to bringing new leadership to Washington, D.C. Congressman Meehan, like many members of Congress, will work with Victory’s grassroots operations to meet voters in his new district. Both Congressmen thanked the volunteers for their hard work, “sweat” and dedication to getting out the vote for Republican candidates in November.
