"We had some visitors today come to our North Texas HRC Office to check out what we were doing. They didn't seem to like a room full of HRC volunteers, working away. They didn't like our yard sign so they decided to make some changes. [Shown at right.] But our North Texas Hillary team didn't get flustered; we used this as another source of motivation to work harder for Hillary. Best stated by FLMO, "When they go low, we go high."

"I am posting this photo to show our Hillary supporters, asking them to help us continue to build. If they come back, will you be there to show them Hillary has your support? If they send others to our office, will you be there to show them that our ground game is superior? With 32 days left until election, donate 2-3 hours a week, for the next 4 weeks, to work for what will determine the next 4 years of your life."

Come make calls and do data entry with us Saturday anytime from 10 am - 5 pm. RSVP here: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/events/view/N5N2YPABI4HTEFS2/
