Portland, Ore. – Seizing on recent endorsements including former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury and State Ways & Means Co-Chair Rep. Peter Buckley, the Yes on 80 campaign is launching its first ’8 for 80 ‘money bomb’ online fundraiser with the goal of raising eight-thousand dollars in a 36-hour online and phone fundraising blitz.
The ‘money bomb’ online fundraiser will start at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sep. 26 and run for 36 hours, until 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sep. 27.
All contributors who donate $20 or more will also be entered in a drawing to win great prizes.
“With Election Day six weeks away, polls show Oregonians evenly split with more than 20 percent of voters still undecided, which presents a great prospect for Measure 80,” said campaign spokesman Roy Kaufmann. “As average Americans continue to support Measure 80 with their contributions of $25, $50, or $100, we will be able to help educate Oregon voters on the need for replacing failed prohibition with sensible, effective marijuana regulation.”
