Supporters of gubernatorial candidate Margaret Anderson Kelliher rallied today outside DFL party headquarters in St. Paul to launch a big get-out-the-vote effort.
Campaign volunteers are planning to make nearly 300-thousand phone calls in the coming days and knock on more than 30-thousand doors on behalf of Kelliher, who has the DFL party endorsement. She’s in a tight August 10th primary contest against Mark Dayton and Matt Entenza. During the rally, Kelliher said she’s counting on the strength of the DFL’s grassroots organization.
“When we win on Tuesday it won’t be because of the ads we put up on TV,” Kleliher said. “It won’t be because of how many pieces of mail we sent out. No, it will be because of the hard work of people, because of the people power.”
All three candidates will be traveling throughout the state in the coming days.
