Yesterday I challenged you, my readers, to help me reach a target of 34 new donors to Darcy Burner and Peter Goldmark via my Act Blue page by midnight Saturday, and the response so far has been both astounding and disappointing. Astounding, because in the past 24 hours we have raised an additional $2,865.00. Disappointing, because that money has come from only thirteen of you.
I’m now 21 donors shy of my goal of 200, with less than a day and a half to go, and all I’m asking from you is as little as $5.00 if that’s all you can afford. Every new donation is a sign of grassroots support, and helps the candidates raise money and attract independent expenditures during the crucial last weeks of the campaign. I wish money didn’t play such a crucial role in politics, but it does. So if you care about helping the Democrats take control of the House and bring accountability back to the other Washington, then please give now.
Thank you all for your tremendous support.
