Big news from the campaign!
As we race towards the finish line to get Matthew Hoh’s campaign for people, planet, and peace on the ballot for US Senate, we have some good news to share:
We’re within striking distance of getting the signatures we need to take this campaign to the next level - IF we can raise enough funds to pay our petitioners without running out of money.
Fortunately a number of generous supporters have agreed to match up to $9,000 of donations - that means everything you give Matthew Hoh for Senate up to $9,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
As you read this, our team of petitioners is hard at work talking to thousands of people to get the 14,000 signatures we need for ballot access.
We’re proud that our campaign offers fair wages to our petitioners because we value their hard work. And that makes it possible for them to put in the many hours needed to overcome the high bar North Carolina has set to get on the ballot.
Matthew Hoh’s campaign already means so much to so many people.We’ve been talking to a lot of folks and finding a real hunger for a new kind of politics that isn’t corrupted by big money, for an end to endless war, a real Green New Deal, quality healthcare for all and an end to debilitating student and medical debt, living wages and workers’ rights, an end to the destructive drug war, racial justice, and so much more that the political establishment refuses to give us.
But to reach all the people who've been left behind by politics as usual, our campaign will need to rapidly shift into high gear when we get on the ballot - and that means we need money not just to pay our petitioners, but also to hire staff and invest in the tools we need to get Matthew’s message out to every voter in North Carolina.
We’ve already come so far thanks to your support - and now that we have supporters ready to match up to $9,000 of your donations, we have a golden opportunity to take this campaign to a whole new level.
Thank you so much for your generous support - it means a lot to us all.
The Matthew Hoh for Senate team
PS: Tuesday May 17 is the last day to gather signatures and we need your help! At this point every single signature could be the one that means the difference between getting Matthew Hoh for Senate on the ballot or falling just short - and we can't let that happen.
