We are now in the final stretch of the election race, and as the candidates ramp up their campaign schedules, ONE members across the country are ramping up their efforts to engage them on the issue of eradicating extreme poverty and preventable disease.
In Fort Worth, Texas, Congressional District Leader Ciara O’Modhrain got the opportunity to meet Senate Candidate Ted Cruz at an early morning rally. After talking to staffers about ONE and our issues, she had the honor of meeting with candidate Cruz before he left for another event across town.
This comes on the heels of a very successful delivery of hundreds of ONE Vote postcards and letters to the campaign headquarters of both candidates. So while we don’t know who is going to win the Senate seat on November 6th, we do know this: the victor will go into office knowing all about ONE and the importance of protecting life-saving aid programs!
