If you haven’t already contributed money to Darcy Burner and Peter Goldmark, now is your absolutely, positively last chance to do it. The candidates will take a close look at their cash-on-hand this weekend, and book their final media buys. Today is your last and best chance to make a difference in these two very important races.
The Republicans are now spending millions of dollars on two seats they never thought they’d have to seriously defend, and it would be a shame if Darcy and Peter missed out on the Democratic wave because they were outspent during the final week of the campaign. (That’s exactly what happened to Dave Ross two years ago.) It is time to dig deep down into our pockets and give until it hurts.
So here’s our target, and I know it’s ambitious, but I also know that we can do it. 317 readers have already given $25,424.38 via HA’s Act Blue page. Over the next 24 hours, I want you to help us hit the $30,000 mark.
This is perhaps the most important congressional election in a generation, so I am asking all of you to give as much as you can. A single reader could bring us most of the way towards our target simply by making the maximum $2,100 donation to each candidate, and surely, at least a few of my readers can afford this. I myself have worked my way into debt over the past year, rejecting paying work so that I could devote myself fully towards political activism, and yet I have just put another $200.00 on my credit card, split between Darcy and Peter. My hope is that a dozen or more of you will follow my lead with donations of equal or greater value.
This will be looked back on as an historic election, the one in which netroots activists truly started to reshape the political landscape. Please join me in making history. Please give what you can today.
