Yesterday we kicked off a netroots fund drive for Bill Sherman, Democrat running for King County Prosecuting Attorney, and so far we’re kinda-sorta off to a pretty good start. We want to hit $5000 and 200 new donors by the end of the day Saturday, and while the $1770 we’ve raised thus far ain’t bad, it came from only 23 contributors.
We want to prove to the big donors that Sherman has the broad grassroots support necessary to win, so if you only have ten bucks to give, please give it now. And, as an extra incentive to put your money behind Sherman, the next $600 raised today will be matched dollar for dollar by Progressive Majority. Turn your $10 donation into $20. Turn your $25 donation into $50. (Etc, etc… you do the math.)
Republicans are counting on their huge, two-to-one money advantage to lead them to victory. It may sound like an odd argument, but the only way to prevent money from trumping values, is to give Sherman the money he needs to get his message out. So please give to Bill Sherman today.
