Republicans are taking a strong debate performance by Mitt Romney into the weekend, trying to contact 2 million voters in a get-out-the-vote effort they’re calling “Super Saturday.”
Among the highlights of the all-day effort was Romney’s wife, Ann, making a surprise visit to a call center in Orlando, Fla., where she posed for pictures, signed campaigned posters and made calls to prospective voters.
“We appreciate all the work you’re doing, all the help you’re giving us,” said Romney, who brought pizzas for the volunteers making calls. “Are you getting a lot of feedback about the debate on the calls?”
This is one of just several Romney/RNC Victory Super Saturdays this election cycle in which volunteers make calls and campaign on the streets. Republicans said they hope this weekend to make contact with at least 35 million potential voters.
