55,559 Doors

Over the weekend, volunteers set out to knock on 48,000 doors for the future 48th governor of Texas, Wendy Davis. It was an admittedly ambitious goal -- and we destroyed it.

At 152 Canvass Kickoff events across Texas, we knocked on 55,559 doors to build support for Wendy.

This is a really big deal, but it's still a seven-month uphill battle to Election Day. We have to keep this up if we want to stay in the race.

Pitch in $5.50 or more to build on this incredible progress and show the GOP how grassroots organizing is done.

Let's talk about goals for a second.

Two weeks ago, the Texas GOP was hyping their "Super Saturday" -- a statewide canvassing effort. They said they would knock on more than 60,000 doors, and called us out by name:

I guess they didn't have as much support as they thought, because here's the email they sent out later:

They fell 50,000 doors short. While enthusiasm is waning for Republicans, it's never been higher for us. That same week, we set a goal of 100,000 phone calls for Wendy -- and made 145,287.

The GOP is no longer the only game in Texas. We're proving every day that our grassroots volunteers are a force to be reckoned with. We set our sights high, and we're successful. This is a feeling we ought to get used to.

Are you ready to carry this momentum through November?
