Statement from UNITE HERE on projected midterm canvassing numbers —
“We decided to throw down in the 2022 midterms because we knew the stakes were too high. We had no choice but to invest our ground game in critically close swing states where we had recent success in securing wins for Democrats — Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.
“We’re up against Trump Republican candidates set to strip the rights of working-class people like the majority Black, Brown, and immigrant hospitality workers that UNITE HERE represents — and that represent a majority of UNITE HERE’s canvassers in the field.
“UNITE HERE isn’t a union to back down from a fight — no matter how big the fight. That’s why we’re knocking on 2.7 million doors across the key swing states of Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia for the 2022 midterms.
- NV: 1,000,000 doors
- AZ: 750,000 doors
- PA: 950,000 doors
- GA: 17,000 doors
“We are WORKERS TO THE FRONT, and we are over 1,200 canvassers strong across four key battleground states — and until the minute that polls close, we will be out there mobilizing voters for the pro-worker Democrats in our fight against fascism. Si se puede!”
