I'm Lauren Beecham, Finance Director for Tarryl Clark's campaign for Congress.
We are now in the final 24 hours of a critical fundraising deadline -- and we need your help to send Congresswoman Michele Bachmann an unmistakable message: her days of standing up for BP, Wall Street and special interests are nearing a definitive end.
Let me bring you up to speed on this important race to take back Congress for all of us.
We have been airing our first television ad of the campaign holding Michele Bachmann accountable for her outrageous defense of British Petroleum for the last week. People need to know who Michele Bachmann is fighting for: BP.
And it's working.
It's because of YOU -- the power of our online grassroots support -- that we just bought another week of airtime! And it's because of YOU that our campaign keeps breaking records.
Last quarter, you helped us make history.
By the end of March we had raised more than $1.1 million since beginning our campaign in July 2009, including more than $505,000 in the first quarter of 2010, becoming the first non-incumbent Congressional candidate in Minnesota history to top the million-dollar mark by the end of the first quarter of the election year.
That's unprecedented! And with YOUR help we can make history again.
At the start of this quarter, Sarah Palin came to Minnesota and raised big money for Michele Bachmann. But we have something better: the power of our online grassroots support.
In May, we set a goal of raising $125,000 online by June 30th. We met that goal so fast we raised it to $175,000 - and supporters like you have already helped us get to $155,000 online this quarter!
This means we have less than 24 hours to raise $20,000 in order to meet our goal. Help us meet our goal today - and tell your friends.
Now is the time to prove to Bachmann and her corporate special interests that our grassroots support is a force to be reckoned with. Now is the time for you to help us pen the final chapter in Michele Bachmann's political career. And with your help, we can - and will - win in November.
