Ralph Reed mobilizing evangelicals in Ohio
Conservative Christian activist Ralph Reed is marshalling his forces in Ohio as the battleground state takes center stage in final week of the presidential race.
The Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Atlanta-based organization Reed launched in 2009 to mobilize voters of faith around the country, is placing more than one million voter guides in 5,300 Ohio churches and plans to complete the effort on the final Sunday before Election Day.
Dropping literature in churches is just one element of a robust closing drive in Ohio to raise evangelical and Catholic awareness of the ‘cultural issues’ at stake in the campaign, Reed told CNN in a phone interview.
‘It’s a major push,’ Reed said of the Ohio effort. ‘We’re all in.’
Faith and Freedom ‘Strike Force’ volunteers and paid callers will unleash a get-out-the-vote phone blitz beginning Tuesday, a week before Election Day, he said.
