Jan 31, 2024

Key Quotes:

  • “That’s what [American Bridge] did in the last election. And it really was kind of that ‘secret sauce’ — which really isn’t a secret — we find real people in the communities we’re targeting — people whose stories mirror those of the voters we seek to persuade. We ask them to tell their stories, we put that on the air.”
  • “What we’ve done is really build a juggernaut relational organizing program, boots on the ground. Already, we’ve recruited 731 prospective storytellers, interviewed 472 of them. Spoken to an OB-GYN doctor, who shared her personal abortion story and relayed the panic her patients feel about Trump getting back into the White House, or journeyman electrician who talked about Trump’s disdain for her career and community.”
  • “At the end of the day, people vote on what they’re familiar with, hopefully, what their interests are. They trust their friends and neighbors, so that’s the direction Bridge will be going.”
  • “When President Trump says, ‘Oh we shouldn’t do anything because it’ll take it away as an election issue,’ how many folks are willing to walk lock-step with him? … Where’s the leadership among other Republicans to say, ‘You know what, we could do better.’”
  • “Republicans took a just beating in the 2022 midterms. And part of that was the candidates, part of that was President Trump, part of that was all of the sudden wanting to take away a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. And [Republicans] forget all of that.”
