FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Democratic Community voted to support efforts to elect Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Democratic Candidates for U.S. Senators from Georgia, at Sunday’s monthly meeting.
“Our fellow Democrats are rushing to help Georgia,” said Michael Hugo, Chair of the FDC.
Michael Ansara from Fair Fight, founded by 2018 gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and Jeff Blum from Working America were special guests at the meeting. Both Ansara and Blum spoke about their efforts and ways Democrats from around the country can get involved to elect Ossoff and Warnock and take control of the U.S. Senate.
There are many ways for Democrats to get involved:
- Working for America seeks volunteers for phone banking and texting (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfHfMJz6Z5KViqpDLRRbmuIlS1CRReYRoBvuVIPLBlvJ39_Wg/viewform)
- Together for 2020 (https://togetherfor2020.org/)
- Phone bank and text with Fair Fight (https://fairfight.com/join-our-fight/)
Members unanimously voted to donate $500 to both Working America and Fair Fight.
Ossoff and Warnock are facing a runoff election with current Republican U.S. Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Georgia election laws require a candidate to gain a majority of the vote to win, and automatically prompt a second contest between the top two vote-getters if no one does.
The special election in Georgia is January 5, 2021.
