Yesterday I talked with another Democratic candidate from a neighboring district. I love these conversations, because it gives me a chance to compare notes, share successes and commiserate on challenges.
Our talk turned to fundraising -- specifically, the incredible pressure on candidates to raise money every campaign finance reporting period (which vary from 1-3 months, depending on the time of year.)
The most recent reporting deadline was last night at 11:59pm. And we did great! We're still tallying up the numbers, which will be publicly reported next week, but we're very satisfied with our totals.
That said, the next reporting period begins today. Can you help me get off to a great start by making a contribution of $10, $20, $50 or $100 this week?
The more we raise now, the more flexibility we have in getting our message out -- snail mail, email, billboards, social media commercials, postcards, radio spots, yard signs, oh my! All of it takes an investment of campaign staff time and money.
And here's the most important part: getting a head start in our fundraising now frees up more of my time to get out in the district, talking directly with voters. There is so much I want to hear from them -- and your contribution (of any size) helps me do just that. So THANK YOU!
