Received two e-mails from State Senator Jason Carter's (D. GA) campaign. First, Carter opened up to MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell about his upcoming race against Governor Nathan Deal (R. GA):

That's the message Jason just took to MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports. Watch the full interview here:
We know that Jason is the right person to bring that new leadership to the State Capitol. But we need help to get that message out. Please contribute $6 right now.
Carter for Governor
The other came from Carter's grandfather, former President Jimmy Carter:
Click here to contribute to Carter's campaign:Earlier this month, my grandson Jason Carter secured the Democratic nomination for governor of Georgia. It was a great moment, and Rosalynn and I are very proud and excited that he is running.
We have a great opportunity in Georgia this November, and I know Jason is the candidate who will take Georgia’s leadership back from Republican Party extremists. His campaign has momentum – in fact, a recent poll put Jason 3 points ahead of the incumbent Republican governor.
But we can’t take advantage of this opportunity without your help.
When we fight for our values, we win. But we need $25,000 by midnight tomorrow to send directly to Jason’s campaign before the fundraising deadline.
Click here to contribute $25 or more directly to my grandson Jason to help defeat the extreme right wing and win back the Georgia governor’s mansion.
Jason is already coming under attack, and millions of dollars are flowing in to Georgia to support the Republican incumbent and to prevent Georgia from moving forward.
Jason is a person of integrity who will always do the right thing for the people he serves. If he’s elected governor, he’ll work every day to defend the values we cherish.
As a young man, Jason served in the Peace Corps in South Africa while Nelson Mandela was president. He worked in schools in rural areas hit hardest by apartheid.
He’s serving now, as I did, in the State Senate. Jason has taken a leading role in protecting the right of every Georgian to vote – at a time when that right is threatened.
As this race heats up, it will be hard for Jason’s friends and family when he is under attack, but I know Jason can handle it – especially if we’re standing with him.
Please, take a moment to help him continue to build a campaign that can win.
Contribute $25 or more before midnight tomorrow directly to Jason to help him launch a campaign that can get his message out and win.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
