Over 200 Young Republicans from around the nation came to Massachusetts to help in this race. They, along with other out of state activists, made over 75,000 phone calls and knocked on 8700 doors. The phone bank leader told those assembled at the Comfort Suites in Foxboro (where I stayed last night) that over 7500 people from around the country either came into Massachusetts or made phone calls from home.
The Young Republicans I talked to last night at the CBS Scene at Patriots Place said that they have never talked to more motivated voters. Rachel Hoff a Tufts Alumni and current DC Young Republican said one woman said, “Hello.. Hello.. Are you a real person? … You are!… I’ve been waiting to tell someone live that yes I am voting for Scott Brown. And so are the other 8 Democrats in my family. We’re sick and tired of this state. It’s time for a change!”
Are you “Fired up and Ready to Go?”
