Petition Drive for Jamie Radtke
January 14, 8:30 a.m.
Several weeks ago, the Richmond TEA Party endorsed its very own Jamie Radtke for US Senate. An endorsement, however, will not get her on the ballot. The rules for the Senate race require that each candidate file petitions with 10,000 validated signatures in order to be on the Republican primary ballot on June 12. The rules require that candidates could not begin gathering those signatures until January 1 and that they must be submitted by March 23. As you can see, a lot of work must be done over the next ten-plus weeks. Jamie would certainly appreciate the assistance of anyone able and willing to gather these signatures.
The first petition signing event occurred last Saturday, but it was just a start! The need is for RTP’ers to show up in mass to assist Jamie in gathering much needed signatures as well as educating the likely primary Republican voters who are to be contacted by all volunteers in this effort.
To make it easy and very convenient for us, Jamie and her staff have compiled pre-printed lists of local neighborhoods with maps/addresses of the designated homes to contact. And, the list can be completed over a four or five day period. A list can may include from ten to twenty addresses to be contacted.
Thank you and hope to see you tomorrow at Radtke for Senate headquarters!
