Mark Harris' campaign: http://www.dailykos.com/...
Unfortunately, Mark Harris did not win his campaign for Congress last year and his opponent, State Senator Glenn Grothman became a member of Congress and resigned his State Senate Seat. That is where we are today. Tomorrow, three Republicans will fight for the right to contest the seat on the Republican ticket. All of them support the same positions and thus, voters will only have a choice of three puppets of Charles and David Koch. The winner will be just another cog in Walker's machine of utter destruction he has set upon our beautiful state. But what if it did not have to be this way? What if we fought a local grassroots campaign that took advantage of a low turnout race and a probable lethargic campaign on behalf of the Republican candidate? What if we energized our base? What if we turned this all around? That is why I am running and that is why I need your help.
I am looking to raise funds so that starting in March, I can campaign actively across the district and tell the voters that there is indeed a choice at the ballot box. I want to go on the UW-Washington County campus and talk about the 300M cut to the UW system in Governor Walker's budget with local students. I want to reach voters who are sick of politicians not caring about them. I want to go precinct by precinct looking for our voters, shaking their hands and getting them to the polls. That is the type of campaign I want to run and that is what I will do with your help.
The general election in all likelihood will be ignored by whomever the Republicans nominate on their ticket. That fact coupled with with the extremely low turnout that a special election in April of 2015 is sure to bring, means a few thousand votes could win this election and I intended to do everything I can to get those votes. All I need is a small amount of money to get my name out there amongst our base and my fundraising goal reflects that purpose. Even if you can only spare one dollar, I would be thankful and so would every progressive in this dark red district. With your help, we can give the Republican nominee the fight of their life.
