When we launched the NH Rebellion in January 2014 with our first frigid walk across New Hampshire, 96% of people supported our #FightBigMoney cause but only 9% believed it could be achieved.
Two years later, that first daring act has inspired thousands of citizens to Walk the Talk all across the state, Ask the Question of every presidential candidate, and Pledge to Fight Big Money. According to the latest poll, 39% of the public now believes real reform is possible – a remarkable four-fold gain.
On Primary Weekend, February 5-7, hundreds of voters will gather at “political ground zero" in downtown Manchester for the first-ever We the People Convention to #FightBigMoney. The heated tent convention will feature artists and activists, politicians and pundits, marches and demonstrations to set the agenda for the 2016 election. If the presidential candidates wish to earn our votes, they will be there too.
We have come a long way together these last two years – 30,000 miles to be precise. What better way to conclude the NH Primary than by going to where the action is and ensuring the presidential candidates commit to #FightBigMoney at the We the People tent convention?!
