Retired Gen. Wes Clark (former NATO Supreme Allied Commander of Europe) has emailed his rather substantial list, telling his supporters that “when one of our own is down, we have to have their back,” and urging them to contribute to Darcy Burner in the wake of her devastating house fire. He’s even set up a new Act Blue page for the purpose.
At this difficult time, Darcy needs to focus on her family as they work to get their lives back in order. That’s what she should be doing — what any of us would do after a similar tragedy.But in Darcy’s case, that means she can’t fundraise, she can’t campaign. And in an election as important and close as hers will be, every day she’s off the campaign trail puts her at a disadvantage. She needs our help.
[…] Darcy is in a tight race and represents one of our best pickup opportunities in the House. She’s going to be an advocate to bring our troops home from Iraq. She’s going to stand strong to fight warrantless wiretapping and protect the Constitution.We can’t let this tragedy stop us from adding Darcy’s voice to Congress. Though Darcy says she lost “just stuff,” she needs time with her family now.
Help me give Darcy the time she needs. Every donation provides Darcy with more time to put down the phone for fundraising and focus on her family. Contribute to Darcy’s campaign today!
