Elections are all about numbers – more specifically, they’re about people, money and time. How many people you can get involved, how much money you can raise, and how much time is left to convince voters to support you. And one thing’s for sure – you can’t get more time.
But, while Governor Christie may have a huge fundraising advantage over Barbara Buono, there’s one way to overcome it:
Slowly but surely, and against the odds, people power absolutely can close the gap between Christie and Buono, in spite of the barrage of negative television advertising paid for by Christie’s rightwing friends, and the millions of our taxpayer dollars spent on Christie’s self-promotion.
We’re definitely not where we want to be yet. But, the polls are tightening, and we need to keep that momentum going in the home stretch! (Selfish plug: it sure would help our down-ballot candidates!)
That’s why I was so excited to hear about plans for a Progressive Day of Action tomorrow, Saturday, September 28th, when democrats from around the state are joining together to help Senator Buono continue closing that gap.

If you’ve been working hard all along, tomorrow will have extra people for extra fun! If you haven’t had a chance to volunteer, now is the perfect time to get involved!
