ReDefeat Bush Campaign to Launch National Voter Registration Drive on March 2nd
 

WASHINGTON - March 1 - WHAT: ReDefeatBush.com, a new federal PAC, will launch its campaign to register one million new Democrats nationwide on Super Tuesday 3/2 with an event in Washington, D.C. Volunteers will gather in the first Tuesday Night Democratic Club to phone and write unregistered residents of Wilkes-Barre, Penn. After the voter contact activities, participants will watch the primary returns on television.

WHEN: Beginning at 6 p.m. EST, March 2, 2004

WHERE: Spy Lounge, 2406 18th Street, NW, Washington, D.C., near the intersection of Belmont Rd. in Adams Morgan.

ReDefeatBush.com will launch its drive to register one million new Democrats with its first Tuesday Night Democratic Club. Volunteers will call and write to people not currently registered to vote in Wilkes-Barre, Penn., and register them to vote in time for the April 27th Pennsylvania Democratic primary. Following the voter contact activities, participants will watch primary returns on television and celebrate Democratic unity.

ReDefeatBush.com raises the money to create its non-voter list and finance its operations through the sale of ReDefeatBush merchandise including buttons, bumper stickers, T-shirts, lawn signs, posters, and condoms, all available online at http://redefeatbush.com/store

"We can have a major impact on the outcome by helping to channel volunteer enthusiasm into politically effective activities," said founder David Lytel. Lytel is a former Internet adviser in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in the first Clinton Administration, where he oversaw the construction and operation of the award-winning White House Web site. The ReDefeatBush campaign is a Federally-registered political action committee called the Committee to ReDefeat the President. Its goal is to engage 20,000 volunteers to register 50 new Democrats each by the close of voter registration in October. Tuesday Night Democratic Clubs are also being organized in Maryland, Virginia and other sites nationwide.
