Bernie has said, “If we win in Iowa and New Hampshire, it opens up for us a path toward victory.” We need to win Iowa. And we're planning this trip for North Carolina volunteers who want to go to Iowa to make it happen.
While we may not have Super PAC money, we have the people power to make it happen and help mobilize voters to get out to the caucus. We believe bringing a large, visible group of volunteers from across our country to Iowa the weekend before the caucus could make a huge impact on voter turnout to the caucus. Every revolution in history has had a watershed moment; Iowa is ours.
We will be heading to Iowa Thursday, January 28th after work & returning to North Carolina in two groups, one on Monday, February 1st and another late on Tuesday, February 2, the day after the caucus. The trip should cost about $250.00 per person with food, transportation and accommodations included and there are 13 people from North Carolina committed to going. There are a few vans lined up to get everyone out to Iowa and to use for shuttling Iowans to and from caucus. We've also got a house rented with enough space for all of us to stay in.
Together, we will create the moment that will define our movement, so grab your snow boots and Bernie gear and let’s go to Iowa!
