The RedState Army

We haven’t talked a lot about the RedState Army in a good while. The Cap and Trade vote made me realize how useful it is. We aggressively called Congress and were able to push a few people back from the yes category. Same with the Supplemental Appropriations Act, where we were able to keep all the GOP in the “no” camp until it reached 218 votes.

Sure, both measures went on to pass, but we were able to make it difficult for the Democrats. And it is more and more important that we grow the ranks of the RedState Army as the healthcare fight picks up.

Below the fold, I’ve got the updated numbers by state. We have a total file of 15,554. We have enough information on 7,319 to target them by state. We’ve only added 1,000 people in the past few months without me aggressively pushing this.

Let’s get on the ball and see what we can do to increase the numbers.

We should be able to get up to 200 in Colorado. 300 should be easily doable in Illinois. Texas can get to 600.

Likewise, below the fold, I’ve got the state by state numbers. See how many people in your state are members and see if you can increase that number. We need your help.
