Fred Needs Volunteers in South Carolina

  • After the successful deployment of Thompson's Troops into Iowa, the time has come to deploy volunteer forces, from all across the country, into South Carolina. Thompson's Troops helped us finish strong in Iowa and with your help we will win in South Carolina!
  • Make History with Fred Thompson
    As we head into the final 2 weeks before South Carolina's primary, the campaign is asking for the help of its strong grassroots organization to propel Fred across the finish line on January 19th. This campaign began as a grassroots attempt to bring Fred Thompson into the race, and this campaign will continue to work with those same grassroots activists to ensure a strong performance on January 19th in South Carolina.
  • Commit to Travel to South Carolina
    In the final two weeks before the primary, we are asking you to commit your time and resources to the South Carolina primary. We need volunteers who are willing to:
  • Recruit supporters at local events
  • Help mobilize and turn out our Fred supporters in the final days and hours before the primary
  • Make phone calls
  • Go door-to-door
  • The campaign is looking for volunteers who are willing to pay their own way (travel, lodging, and food expenses). If you can commit to this we will work with you to:
  • Fly into a specific location
  • Help locate affordable accommodations
  • Train and explain the tasks you will perform while in South Carolina
  • Have a great time
  • Time Frame
    We need volunteers anytime between January 8th and January 19th. Any amount of time you can commit will benefit the organization, but we will especially need help in the final 72 hours before the primary, which is Saturday January 19th.
  • Financial Commitment
    Volunteers can help the campaign out in a number of different ways when traveling to South Carolina and we appreciate all your help. It is important that campaign finance limits and restrictions are followed when a volunteer is using their resources when traveling on behalf of the Friends of Fred Thompson Campaign. If you have any questions or concerns, please click on this link (FEC Volunteer Rules) to read a full explanation of rules and regulations.
