Arlington, VA – Ahead of Election Day, Concerned Veterans for America’s “Get Out the Vets” (GOTVets) and express candidate advocacy efforts have already reached over 4 million veterans and military family members across the country. The group has made over 4 million phone calls and knocked on roughly 150,000 doors so far this year, asking Patriots to get out and vote on November 8th.
CVA is active in sixteen states this election cycle, mobilizing a grassroots volunteer army of thousands to encourage veterans and military families to vote on Election Day. In Pennsylvania, Florida, and Nevada, CVA is expressly advocating on behalf of Senator Toomey (R-PA), Senator Rubio (R-FL), and Rep. Heck (R-NV) – three strong champions of VA reform – respectively.
Concerned Veterans for America Executive Director Mark Lucas issued the following statement:
“There are 21 million veterans in the U.S. who sacrificed for our right to vote. On Election Day, we want veterans, military families, and Patriotic citizens alike to honor that sacrifice at the ballot box. Between a broken Department of Veterans Affairs and a skyrocketing debt threatening national security, there’s just too much on the line for the veterans community to sit this election out. CVA has worked tirelessly to inspire millions of people to get out and vote, and we will continue to mobilize our grassroots army through November 8th.”
CVA has utilized a strategic combination of phone calls, door knocks, mail pieces and digital ads for both their GOTVets and express advocacy efforts.
On the express advocacy side, the group made six-figure investments in Pennsylvania, Florida, and Nevada on behalf of Toomey, Rubio, and Heck.
