Senator Coburn, media coverage of election campaigns often makes it appear that there's only one person who matters, and that's the candidate himself. But really there are a lot of people who make a difference in a campaign. Can you explain the impact you felt from your supporters at the grassroots level?
I would not be a U.S. senator today had it not been for the grassroots effort that we had. And it was actually given to us-we tried to develop it, but we had so many people involved at the grassroots level. And we actually won our campaign based on what we did at grassroots. We did it. We were outspent three to one, Mike, in terms of dollars and media and everything else. But we had grassroots volunteers that were just energized and believed in what we were talking about. And they made the difference. I'm a U.S. senator today because of that.
Now I know that one of the groups that was there helping was HSLDA's Generation Joshua. And they were able to get some homeschoolers to come help you. Can you tell us how that group impacted your campaign?
They were our grassroots. They were the key. Generation Joshua was the most successful thing I've ever seen in politics, and my hope is that it'll continue.
I would encourage any teenager that would like to be involved in this GenJ program that Dr. Coburn has talked about, to go to generationjoshua.org. You'll find it an exciting program. Thanks so much.
