Washington, D.C. – Following Hillary Clinton’s big wins on Super Tuesday, today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Victory Fund and Priorities USA Action announced a direct mail campaign in support of Hillary Clinton for president and targets Democratic primary voters in Florida and North Carolina, encouraging them to take advantage of early vote options in their states. The $274,000 campaign targets 565,000 households.
This is the first independent expenditure by LCV Victory Fund this cycle, and follows a previous digital campaign by LCV in support of Hillary in January.
Early voting can play a significant role in elections. For example this week in Texas, the largest Super Tuesday state, 1.1 million people voted early out of 4.2 million total votes cast.
The mailer calls on voters to “Join me in Building on the Progress We’ve Made Under President Obama,” directly quoting Hillary. It details her stated positions on issues such as the ongoing water crisis in Flint as well as raising incomes, reducing gun violence, protecting the Affordable Care Act, and fighting racial injustice.
“Early-voting is a critical way to encourage voter participation, and open up the democratic process to communities too-often excluded,” said LCVVF National Campaigns Director Clay Schroers. “We are also excited to continue sharing our message about Hillary, who has committed to building a campaign that will build upon and expand the progress made under President Obama. On a whole host of issues that Democratic voters care deeply about she has outlined a bold vision for our future. This includes her continued outspoken leadership on bringing attention to the ongoing water crisis in Flint, and highlighting the critical importance of environmental justice for vulnerable communities across the country.”
