It's great to be back blogging at DailyKos! As you know, I've been a little busy the last few months, so I haven't been back to post recently, but I definitely plan to stop by more frequently over the weeks ahead.
Quick update: Our campaign for the U.S. Senate is going strong. We've had a great first few months up here in Massachusetts. We're building a strong grassroots campaign all across the Commonwealth that can go toe-to-toe with Scott Brown, Karl Rove, and all the Wall Street bankers already spending millions of dollars trying to defeat me.
But we still have a lot of work to do, and tens of thousands of middle-class families in Massachusetts are counting on us. That's why I'm asking for your help today.
This Thursday, January 19th, we're organizing a "money bomb" for my campaign. The idea of everyone coming together to raise as much money possible and send a powerful signal all in one day is new for me, having never run for office before, but I know it can make a big difference.
Why Thursday? Because it's the two-year anniversary of the special election that sent Scott Brown to Washington and the U.S. Senate. He plans to use the date to celebrate and officially announce for re-election. I want to use that date to make clear the grassroots strength of our campaign -- and to raise as much money as possible from grassroots supporters.
Since we launched this idea on Friday, grassroots supporters just like you already have pledged to contribute more than $250,000 on January 19th -- and we're just getting started.
We are working hard to catch up to Scott Brown's enormous $12 million campaign war chest, which is twice as much as we have in the bank. We also want to show everyone what people across the Commonwealth and around the country can accomplish together.
It will be a strong signal to Karl Rove, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Wall Street lobbyists that we're not going to back off and let them take anything for granted.
On the two-year anniversary of the election that sent one of Wall Street's favorites to the U.S. Senate, let's show that we're going to be the ones who step up with the huge grassroots support it's going to take to win this race.
Please help us show how many people are coming together behind our campaign on Thursday by pledging a contribution of $5 to our Thursday money bomb now. By filling out this form on our website your contribution will automatically be processed on January 19th.
Thank you for being a part of this,
