If the only thing you knew about the John Culberson campaign came from the political pundits, you’d probably think that his campaign was a lost cause. Fortunately, the grassroots workers in Harris County don’t depend on the political pundits for their information.
Culberson’s opponent in CD-7 sent this fundraising email to her list:
That sounds like a lot of phone calls, right? Lots of energy, right? Well, maybe for a Harris County Democrat but for a Harris County Republican? Not so much.
I bet you didn’t know that grassroot Republicans in Harris County have already made nearly twice the number of phone calls for the Culberson campaign? Yes, nearly 200,000 and they are ratcheting that up daily. Even more important, they have already knocked on more than 83,000 doors.
I reached out to the Culberson campaign’s Communications Director, Catherine Kelly, to ask her about the grassroots activity in CD-7. Here is what she had to say:
Republicans know the key to a winning campaign is a strong grassroots operation, not by one-off campaign stops by extreme liberals like Cory Booker or $14,000 in donations from Nancy Pelosi. Enthusiasm in Houston is sky high for Congressman Culberson, which is evident because our volunteers have made twice as many phone calls as the Fletcher campaign and knocked on more doors than any other Republican campaign in the state with the exception of Governor Abbott’s campaign.
The next time you hear some political pundit spouting off about the energy coming from the Democrats in Harris County, remind them that Republicans have been doing this hard work for years and this year is no different. The enthusiasm level for Republicans in Harris County is very high, regardless of what political pundits say.
And, in case you missed it, the latest New York Times poll has Culberson up by 3. Just so you know.
Update: Might as well include the latest John Culberson campaign video which was release shortly after this was published.
