We can understand not liking Tom McClintock. In the several decades that he’s represented California (both Southern California and the 4th Congressional District) he has gloated about accomplishing as little as possible. That’s his political philosophy and he’s proud to do as little as possible.
However, this election will be a close one. In 2018, McClintock’s normal margin of victory evaporated. A close race can come down to a few thousand voters. That’s one or two people per precinct. That’s you, your spouse or partner, or your neighbor.
Every vote matters.
What to do
Voter turnout will be key in this election. Getting every eligible voter to cast a ballot will be key to removing a representative who works against his constituents.
In the coming weeks and months, we must all work to ensure that our family, friends and neighbors are all engaged in this election as much we are. That means taking every opportunity to stress the importance of voting. How do we do that? Simple things:
- Wear a button to start conversations
- Write a letter to the editor
- Call in to your local radio station
With non-voters being less engaged with news, it’s up to you to help spread information regarding this election. After all the facts are NOT with McClintock. During this COVID-19 pandemic, he has repeatedly voted against the best interests of our family, friends and neighbors. He has voted against the best interests of YOU.
Getting everyone to the polls will be key in removing an ineffective, unresponsive representative from office. Let’s make sure every eligible voter in CD4 casts a ballot and sends Tom McClintock packing once and for all.
