Today we launched a campaign called “I’m comMITTed” (read the important introductory post here.) As part of this campaign we want to highlight the experiences that many of you are having while you are make phone calls, post signs, volunteer at campaign offices, etc.

We want to hear your story! Each day we will highlight a different Romney supporter and post their story on our blog. Tell us how you’ve been helping, any interesting experiences you’ve had, and of course send us your pictures and videos.

Persons whose story we select to feature will win a free t-shirt and sticker from our store! Send those submissions to contact@mittromneycentral.com. Be sure to include your name (we will only publish your first name), your city and state, and put “guest submission” in subject line. Please note: we may edit submissions for grammar, spelling, and length.

A local campaign office in Virginia

Today’s submission comes from the Commonwealth of Virginia! Since we hadn’t requested any submissions yet I asked my in-laws if they would tell a bit of their recent trip to the local campaign office. Here they are:

My husband and I hooked up with a GOTV group in Northern Virginia last weekend. We were a little scared at first as this was our first time being involved in politics and our first time door knocking. But we feel like the future of our country is at stake in this election.

What a great experience! First of all, we felt like we were finally making a difference. Even though we live fairly close to DC in a mostly blue area, the people we met were generally receptive. The best news – of the people we canvassed, Romney had a huge lead over Obama despite what the polls may say.

We are excited to try it again this weekend!

We’re comMITTed!

I went out knocking on doors with a gentleman from Texas who had traveled to Virginia to help recruit the undecided voters. He said, “Texas is in the bag, but you guys in Virginia need some help. So I’m here.” All of the doors we knocked were either pro-Romney or were truly undecided – in which case we left a pamphlet. It was a non-threatening approach, but it told me a lot about the percentage of undecided voters who are really in favor of Romney.

One interesting episode. As we walked down the street, a man was literally running towards us from behind. When he got to us, I noticed that he had an “Our Lady of Sorrows” T-shirt. He was a former FBI agent who said he was disappointed that only his wife got to express her opinions when we knocked on their door. He said he has mailed a letter to EVERY Catholic Bishop in the United States, telling them that every Priest should be telling their parishioners to vote for Romney. I asked him, as a former Justice department employee, to tell me how he feels about Eric Holder. Well, he got red-in-the-face and then explained to me in very clear language that he felt Holder is a disgrace to the Department.

My afternoon was a small sample, but it was very encouraging to me.
