A Few Words From Congressman Allen West
I am in Washington this week, but I look forward to getting back for the August break and spending time meeting with small business owners, visiting senior centers, speaking to various community groups, and hopefully even getting in some time knocking on doors to speak to voters.
It’s hard to believe, but the November election is only 97 days away, and the Republican primary is only 13 days away!
As you know, the Republican primary is on August 14. Much like two years ago, Democrats have recruited a liberal to run against me in the Republican primary, and predictably, the local left-wing editorial boards have jumped on the band wagon. The primary is an opportunity to deliver a decisive victory and send a message to the liberals about our organizational strength. We can’t afford to be complacent. In the next two weeks there is a lot of work to do.
Help Us Get Out the Vote
Our campaign needs your help making calls and knocking on doors to remind our supporters to vote on August 14. If you can spare an hour or two between now and August 14 to make calls or knock on doors as part of our grassroots army, sign up here.
Can’t make it to the polls on August 14? Don’t worry. Early voting begins this Saturday, August 4 and continues through Saturday, August 11. Any registered voter can vote early for any reason. Visit our Early Voting page for more information.
Not in town between now and the primary? You can vote by mail, but the Supervisor of Elections must receive your absentee ballot request by 5pm on August 8. Visit our Absentee Voting page for more information.
You have probably seen campaign signs popping up in yards and in front of businesses up and down the Treasure Coast. If you live in the 18th District, email GoWest@AllenWestforCongress.com to request a sign.
If you have a pickup truck and would like to deliver large signs, we can use your assistance on our sign distribution team. Email GoWest@AllenWestforCongress.com and we will get you involved.
Thank you for continued assistance. Because of you, our fundraising numbers continue to place us among the top nationally and we have the resources to counter the lies, distortion and smears already coming from my likely Democrat opponent, his left-wing Super PAC allies and his buddies in the liberal media. Please remember to remind your family, friends and coworkers to vote in the Republican Primary on August 14. The polls are open from 7:00am to 7:00pm. I look forward to seeing you around the district this month.
Thank you for standing with me and our campaign!
Steadfast and Loyal,
LTC Allen B. West, USA, Ret.
Member of Congress
