Michigan, Recall Rick Snyder, Rick Snyder — August 9, 2011 at 1:59 pm

FUNDRAISER: Daily Kos and Recall Rick Snyder need your help!


As I have reported before, Daily Kos is helping out with the Rick Snyder recall effort. They currently have a fundraising drive going to ensure that they are successful.

From June 20 to July 31, we pulled in an amazing 297,529 petition signatures in our campaign to recall Governor Rick Snyder. In July alone, more than 255,000 signatures were collected.

This was done by the over 5,000 amazing Michigan volunteers for Daily Kos and FireRickSnyder.org. We did it while making every penny count, gathering eight signatures for every dollar spent.

Looking forward, Michigan election law requires 806,522 petition signatures in order to force a recall election. The signatures must be gathered in 90 days, but when that 90-day period begins is up to us.

At our current pace, we need another 7,000 volunteers to pull this off. Finding the volunteers shouldn’t be a problem, but we do need a new volunteer management system to keep everyone active and organized.

We need $3,150 to afford this new volunteer management system. Please, chip in $3 to Daily Kos and Fire Rick Snyder. We need to kick Rick Snyder out of office.

Thanks for all you do,
Chris Bowers
Campaign Director, Daily Kos
