COVID-19 Candidate Advisory
In an abundance of extreme caution, we are advising all Republican candidates currently campaigning for the 2020 election to suspend all in-person canvassing efforts and postpone large gatherings, such as rallies, meet ups and fundraisers.
This advisory is not something we take lightly. During this unprecedented time, the health and well-being of the communities we hope to represent need to be put ahead of all other priorities at this time.
In the meantime we encourage all of our candidates to:
- Take all necessary precautions to keep themselves and their families safe.
- Follow all guidelines put forth by the CDC and other government agencies.
- If possible, check in on your elderly neighbors.
- If healthy (and allowed depending on area), inquire with your local city/town agencies and non-profits to see if you might be of assistance in a volunteer capacity.
We appreciate all of the hard work and commitment to our cause you have given to this point. We certainly encourage all to continue to communicate with voters during this time utilizing the press, the telephone and digital tools such as; social media, email and your websites.
We are currently strategizing on ways we can help during this uncertain time. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
