Meet ALL The Carters!

I don't know if there ever was a Senate campaign like this one. What the Carter family is doing for Jack is truly awesome. This weekend the Carters will be fanning out all over Nevada. Maybe you'll get a chance to meet one, too! From a Carter press release:

Three generations of Carters will be in Nevada October 20 – 22, throwing their support behind Jack Carter, the Democratic nominee for United States Senate. The visit coincides with the start of early voting on Saturday, October 21.

Led by Jack and his parents – former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn – the family members will get their assignments at 10 a.m. Friday in Henderson. From there, they will fan out across Nevada. Family members will meet with voters in Carson City, Elko, Fallon, Fernley, Henderson, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Lovelock, Mesquite, Minden, Overton, Reno, Searchlight, Winnemucca, and Yerington.

“I’m excited that Mom and Dad, my two brothers and sister Amy will be among those who’ll be meeting folks across our great state, urging them to participate in the political process this fall,” Jack Carter says. “They will be helping me to spread the word that it’s time for change and that I will serve them as Nevada’s voice to Washington and not the other way around.”

Wow! I wish I could be there! Go out and meet the Carters and then help the campaign yourself by volunteering or contributing to Jack!
