Biggest Independent Social Media Campaign in History Will Also Directly Contact Conservatives in Target States 10 Times or More in Last 3 Weeks
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – ForAmerica Chairman Brent Bozell announced today that the social media powerhouse will contact (through Facebook posts, videos, emails, etc.) more than 7 million people in 9 battleground states from October 1st until Election Day. The push is aimed at motivating Americans to go to the polls and vote against the liberal agenda in Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Montana.
“We have spent more than two years building and educating the largest online conservative network. And that network is now educated and mobilized to make an impact. Through social media, ForAmerica will directly reach millions of independents and conservatives in target states and encourage them to bring their friends and family when they vote. Based on our engagement numbers, the conservative base is motivated as much or more than it was in the 2010 midterms. The intensity meter is off the charts,” said Bozell.
On Facebook alone, ForAmerica will directly contact conservatives in those 9 target states 10 times in the last three weeks leading up to November 6th. Additionally, ForAmerica will directly contact its own fans in those 9 target states an additional five times in the last three weeks of the campaign.
