Advocacy Group ‘Bros4Hillary’ Announces Partnership With Clinton Campaign

User

doyouevenvotebroBros4Hillary, a volunteer advocacy organization with over 29,000 members and followers across the country on various social media platforms, announced today it’s official partnership with Hillary for America, the campaign to elect Hillary Rodham Clinton to the White House in November’s presidential election.

According to the group’s executive board, they are now officially working with the campaign to implement a massive voter outreach effort across the United States which will see the group reaching out to it’s followers to make phone calls and register voters. The effort is accompanied with a catchy slogan, “Do You Even Vote, Bro?”

The group has worked directly with the campaign to go live with their own IWillVote page, sponsored by the Democratic National Committee, with hopes that they can tap into the Bros4Hillary follower base to register new voters. Voters can now go directly to www.iwillvote.com/bros4hillary.

“Beginning today, potential voters across the United States can register to vote or check their voter registration status on our own official IWillVote page,” said Bros4Hillary Political Director Alex Mohajer. According to Mohajer, the group has already been working hard to register new voters, particularly among swing states, with it’s “12DaysofHillary” campaign, which provides followers with daily informational tidbits on how to get involved in the campaign.

“We have a dedicated crew of volunteer designers and social media superstars we call the ‘Social Media Outreach Team,’ and they have been working hard to design and release daily memes,” said Bros4Hillary Director of Social Media Outreach Daniel Fusselman. The social media team is comprised of ordinary members with design skills, and many of these memes target specific swing states urging voters to register.

“Having our own landing page at IWillVote will be an infinitely helpful resource in that effort,” said Mohajer.

The Clinton Campaign will also now sponsor the “Official Bros4Hillary Call Team,” a group of phone-bankers who will come directly from the group but represent the Clinton campaign in making phone calls urging voter registration and turnout in the following weeks. “When our followers and users log in to the Hillary for America phone banking tool, they can start making calls as official members of Bros4Hillary,” Mohajer said.

“We already have many of our users phone-banking for Secretary Clinton,” added Fusselman. “To have the campaign acknowledge us by hosting us as an official leg of the campaign is fantastic but also just gives us a specific place to send our followers to get involved. It really concentrates our efforts.”

The group’s co-founders, Nelson Melegrito and Rance Collins, are surprised at the reach their group has had. “We started as Facebook group with just a few people,” Melegrito said. “To have it grow to have this kind of impact is surprising and an honor.”

“We are honored that the campaign reached out to us but also just to be of service. We are all in this to make sure she gets elected. We believe in her,” said Collins.

NBA star Lebron James tweeted his support of Hillary Clinton in the late hours of Sunday, October 2.

“But it’s a Monday!” You might be saying to yourself. “I have to work. I have a life. I have things to do. LOTS OF THINGS.”

That’s ok, our dear, busy Bros4Hillary readers. You can give Hillary your money. Donate to Hillary for America now. (Bros4Hillary doesn’t take a cent).

Or, another way to get involved for our busy bros, is to use your nifty cell phone to spit out some mad social media game. Tweet us a @bros4hillary! Did you catch Lebron James and his awesome twitter endorsement late last night? Spread the word! Share this article with your friends, and tweet #12DaysofHillary #3rdDayofHillary #StrongerTogether #ImWithHer and/or #Bros4Hillary.

On The Second Day of Hillary: Be Stronger Together

Day 2: Dedicate 1 hr per weekOctober 2nd, 2016 is the #2ndDayofHillary.

The #12DaysofHillary are officially underway, and yesterday we spread the word across the social media scape about the urgent need for campaign volunteers to MAKE CALLS.

On Day 2, we are asking our members to think of the enormous impact we could have if we banded together to make calls. One person making calls makes a little dent. 29,000 members and followers across our various social media platforms making calls makes an enormous and impactful splash.

So Bros: On the Second Day of Hillary, we are asking that from now until election day, that each and everyone of you dedicate one hour per week to elect Hillary Clinton.

Why? Because the proof is in the numbers:

13,000 members dedicating 1 hour per week to make calls equals 120,000 calls made for Hillary across the United States in ONE WEEK!

WOW!

No matter how you decide you will dedicate your one hour of weekly volunteering, just remember that today’s theme is about #StrengthInNumbers. If you alone make one hour of calls this week, the total net positive effect on the Hillary Clinton campaign is not that substantial. But when all of you put your minds together…you are #StrongerTogether. So reach out to your friends, family, and fellow Bros4Hillary members, and encourage them to join you on this effort!

Volunteering is so important. Every person you call is another person who may not have heard from the campaign. You can do it from anywhere! The gym, the comforts of your own home, while working on your tan lines, and even in certain prisons.

Spread the word! Share this article with your friends, and tweet #12DaysofHillary #2ndDayofHillary #MakeCalls #StrongerTogether and #Bros4Hillary.

Stay tuned for The Third Day of Hillary, tomorrow!

On The First Day of Hillary: Make Calls

14494771_10209437598590249_6419343860768271373_n
October 1, 2016 is the First Day of Hillary. Pictured are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton perusing e-mails and making calls, B4H Executive Board members Alex Mohajer and Rance Collins (bottom left) and B4H members Alicia Tucker, Robert Carnival, and Guest (bottom right).

It’s October 1st, 2016.

You know what that means.

The #12DaysofHillary have officially arrived. Consider this your official Bros4Hillary “October Surprise!” October 1st shall forevermore be known as “The First Day of Hillary.”

Well, maybe not. But the first, most obvious, and most impactful way you can contribute to this campaign is to MAKE CALLS.

Many people feel timid about this time-tested and true campaign tool, known in political circles as “phonebanking.” Isn’t it awkward to call some stranger in some far off land and have a – gulp- conversation with them? Millennials in particular have shown in various studies that they are averse to that old-fashioned phone call stuff. But it is such an effective way to communicate with voters all over the country and the campaign has taken all of the anxiety and guess work out of the process. It’s easy. And all you need is a computer and a phone.

You don’t need to go to your local campaign office. You don’t even need to get into your car to help. All you need is access to a computer and a phone. It’s that easy.

So how do you do it?

  1. Go to: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/calls/
  2. Click “Start Calling.”
  3. You’ll be asked to login. You can use your Facebook account, or register a new account (it will only take a minute).
  4. Once you’re logged in, you are provided phone numbers and a script, and you’re ready to make calls!
  5. The site provides training if you need it, and always has help if you need it.

Volunteering is so important. Every person you call is another person who may not have heard from the campaign. You can do it from anywhere! The gym, the comforts of your own home, while working on your tan lines, and even in certain prisons.

Spread the word! Share this article with your friends, and tweet #12DaysofHillary #1stDayofHillary #MakeCalls and #Bros4Hillary.

Stay tuned for The Second Day of Hillary, tomorrow!

14440726_10209437598510247_3340300900284146718_nBros4Hillary’s massive “12 Days of Hillary” campaign kicks off tomorrow! For 12 consecutive days beginning October 1 and continuing through and including October 12, make sure to check in to our various social media pages for an exclusive look into how you can get more involved before this November’s presidential election.

7 Reasons Why Hillary Just Had The Best Day Ever

Bro4Hillary Guest Contributor Jason Murray

NEW YORK, NY – Wednesday September 28, 2016.

Not one for the history books, necessarily. And in terms of splashy moments, her commanding performance at the first Presidential debate on Monday will definitely be one people will remember.

But if I were a betting man, I would go out on a limb to make a pretty bold declaration: Today was arguably the best day of this campaign cycle both for Hillary Clinton and democrats.

The star wattage blazing across the country in support of top and down-ticket candidates was staggering. And the resulting effect on millennials and the working class could be just what this campaign needs. Let’s examine the evidence:

Wonder if FLOTUS caught this while in PA today? Bros4Hillary is currently in the middle of a massive swing state voter registration campaign.

1. Michelle Obama eviscerated Trump on the birther issue while campaigning for Hillary in Pennsylvania.  A hotly contested swing state. 

Not only that, but her moment about being confounded as to why anyone could say they are not inspired by Hillary was a show-stopper for the ages. An excerpt of Michelle’s comments while speaking today at La Salle University:

And here is what I absolutely know for sure — listen to this — right now we have an opportunity to elect one of the most qualified people who has ever endeavored to become president. Hillary — Hillary has been a lawyer, a law professor, first lady of Arkansas, first lady of the United States, a U.S. senator, secretary of state — do you hear me?

(APPLA– USE) See, that is why I am inspired by Hillary. I am inspired by her persistence and her consistency, by her heart and her guts. And I am inspired by her lifelong record of public service.

No one in our lifetime has ever had as much experience and exposure to the presidency: not Barack, not Bill, as he would say, nobody, and yes, she happens to be a woman.”

2. Hillary and former-rival Bernie Sanders campaigned together in New Hampshire, and Bernie was passionate about it. This photo. My god, this photo!

Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton embraces her former rival Bernie Sanders while campaigning together in New Hampshire.

3. President Obama showed us all in Virginia tonight what it truly means to be Commander-in-Chief and how passionate, respectful, and loving a president must be to his (or her) military.

4. President Bill Clinton campaigned for Hillary in Ohio today. Bubba always delivers, and people underestimate how much Americans love their former presidents.

A tender moment between former President Bill Clinton and an adoring audience at Los Angeles Technical Trade College on April 3, 2016. This photo was snapped from the stage by B4H Political Director Alex Mohajer.

5. Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for Hillary in Pennsylvania yesterday.

6. Trump is really being held accountable today by the media for his incessant fat shaming of women, including Kim Kardashian.

7. Republicans went on CNN and told Don Lemon it’d be disastrous for Trump to bring up Bill Clinton’s discretions as president, given that most people feel sorry for Hillary for that very situation.

The tide of the election may be turning, but it is going to involve continued persistence and hard work to make sure this team effort pays off! All hands on deck!

 

14 Times Hillary Clinton Owned Donald Trump In The First Presidential Debate

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – The first debate of the 2016 presidential campaign aired across multiple networks last night live from Hofstra University in the great state of New York. While moderator Lester Holt received mixed reviews, and Donald Trump was decidedly the loser (CNN polls show that he lost by a landslide), all indications suggest that it was a ratings knock-out.

The long-awaited face-off between Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton and her Republican adversary, Donald Trump, was actually a star vehicle for Clinton. She was cool, calm, and collected, and succeeded in digging away at Mr. Trump’s nerves slowly and subtly throughout the presentation, and then kicked back and enjoyed the show as her opponent grew more and more agitated.

Eventually, she succeeded in baiting him, and the resulting implosion and temper tantrum were borderline incoherent. By debate’s end, she did her job: showing a mastery of policy, dismantling his ludicrous assertions, and showing just how easy it is to bait and provoke him, and how truly unstable his temperament actually is.

The debate was replete with take-downs and impressive zingers by Clinton, who demonstrated a mastery of knowledge, and frankly stagecraft. We decided to compile our favorite “gotcha” moments of the evening (at the official Bros4Hillary viewing Party at Revolver in West Hollywood, most of these moments elicited uproarious cheers and I’m-Not-Worthys from the audience).

Behold: 14 Times Hillary Clinton Owned Donald Trump during last night’s presidential debate.

1. “Donald. It’s good to be with you.”

Right off the bat, Clinton dug right underneath Trump’s skin. With a classic side-eye and the slightest hint of sarcasm, she addressed her opponent with a smarmy grin that she seemed to know would plant the seed of his growing annoyance with her. For a narcissist like Trump, it’s inevitable that he would begin pathologically dissecting just what she meant by that? Was it an insult? Did she just make him look foolish on national television? The slow-cooker begins.

2. “I Call It Trumped Up Trickle Down.”

Pre-planned and rehearsed zinger, but this line was not only effective, it was snazzy. Viewers at the Viewing Party chanted back “trumped up trickle down!” back at the the television set and giggled in delight. Canned or not, it was an effective pairing of Trump’s policies with failed Reagan-era economic policies that the Clinton camp is betting (wisely) will invalidate any semblance of an economic plan Trump might have for the American people.

3. “He started his business with $14 million dollars he borrowed from his father.”

If you look closely, you can see Donald wincing. Early on, Hillary took a direct one-two punch by aiming to minimize Donald’s success as a business man while simultaneously making him look like a spoiled, spoon-fed daddy’s boy. It wasn’t a huge moment, but the effect it had on the tenor of the overall debate is undeniable. This is the beginning of Donald’s overt agitation. And Hillary. Is. Loving it.

Plus, contrast the zinger with a compelling story about her own father who was a small business owner toiling over his fabric printing business, and she successfully aligned herself with the little guy.

4. “In fact, Donald is one of the people who rooted for the housing crisis. He said back in 2006, ‘Gee, I hope it does collapse because then I can go in and buy some and make some money.”

Democratic preside (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
Say what?! (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)

It’s not so much the quote, which is damning in and of itself. It’s Donald’s shocking response:

“It’s called business, by the way.” 

Wow.

5. “Well, Donald, I know you live in your own reality, but those are not the facts.”

After Donald rudely badgered Clinton and tried to blame her for and attribute quotes about the Trans Pacific Partnership to her that simply were not true (or fact-checkers suggest- a stretch), Clinton basically called Trump a crazy dumpster person.

Zing!

6. (Literally laughing right in Donald’s face) “I have a feeling that by the end of this evening I’m gonna be blamed for everything that’s ever happened.”

Followed up almost immediately by:

7. Why not? Yeah. Why not? Just join the debate by saying more crazy things.

Wooooo, you go girl!

8. “[Trump really started] his political activity based on this racist lie that our first black president was not an American citizen…He has a long record of engaging in racist behavior, and the birther lie was a very hurtful one. Barack Obama is a man of great dignity. And I could tell how much it bothered him and annoyed him that this was being touted and used against him.”

A somber moment, matched with a valiant defense of President Barack Obama’s integrity.

We are now getting into unchartered territory in American politics and decorum. A major party candidate blatantly calling their opponent a racist might not usually be received well. Here, it is well-deserved.

9. “I think that Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. And you know what? Yes I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be President. And I think that’s a good thing.”

14494748_10154576056602010_2198178143474138640_n

10. “Well at least I have a plan to fight ISIS.”

Delivered with a wink and a smile. PWNED.

11. “Why won’t he release his tax returns? … First, maybe he’s not as rich as he says he is. Second, maybe he’s not as charitable as he claims to be. Or maybe he doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’s paid nothing in federal taxes.”

Trump’s response? “That makes me smart.”

It writes itself.

12. THIS.

14492464_10100782294223034_1922157172829024006_n

After Donald weakly deflects a question wherein he is forced to face his own comments criticizing Clinton’s appearance, he goes after her stamina. She answers perfectly and shuts him right down.

13. And we can’t choose between these two for our favorite moments of the night. Is it Hillary’s brilliant last second TKO about Miss America pageant contestant Alicia Machado, or is the shimmy shimmy and the “Whew!” heard around the world? You decide.

For Immediate Release: Pro-Hillary Clinton advocacy group Bros4Hillary announces massive ’12 Days of Hillary’ voter outreach campaign

img_0548.jpgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – The pro-Hillary Clinton volunteer and advocacy organization Bros4Hillary announced Thursday its “12 Days of Hillary” campaign: a comprehensive voter outreach effort to register new voters in closely contested battleground states and increase overall voter participation before the November presidential election.

The 12-day campaign begins October 1 with daily posts across various social media platforms educating voters on ways to get involved, like how to phone bank. In anticipation of the campaign, Bros4Hillary has been advocating new voter registration and educating potential voters on registration deadlines in targeted battleground states.

“Obviously, voter turnout is crucial in every state,” said Bros4Hillary Political Director Alex Mohajer. “But what we have seen is that we will need definitive wins in traditional swing states in order to ensure an electoral victory. So we are targeting those specific states with a social media blitz. We think it’s important to say, ‘Hey Michiganders, we need you specifically to register and get to the polls.”

The organization has over 25,000 followers and members across several social media platforms, and knows they have the potential to reach an exponentially larger audience by making their content “go viral.”

“With so many people watching this very controversial election, consumption of social media feels like it is at an all time high,” said Director of Social Media Outreach, Daniel Fusselman. “People are using Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to get their news, share their opinions, and vent their outrage. People are sharing our content.”

Fusselman and Mohajer have been working with the group’s social media outreach team, comprised of members with an expansive social media audience and a demonstrated ability to reach and engage them, to strategize and develop viral-worthy content and maximize support for Clinton.

“Time and time again our members have risen to the challenge. They had an outsized impact during the primary. Our members’ energy and dedication is what makes this group so special.” Fusselman said.

Mohajer added, “Bros4Hillary’s wide and diverse membership will again be making a large difference on the social media conversation and ultimately in polls and votes.”

Priscilla Wagner, a member of the group’s social media outreach team, agrees. “When our members get excited about things, big things happen,” Wagner said.

“These folks are all volunteers. But they are pros. And they have been working so hard,” Fusselman said. “Some of them have their own vast social media networks and hundreds of thousands of followers at their disposal. It’s really invaluable.”
