Friends, this is actually Elaine's staff who asked us to post on her behalf. Elaine is a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate. If you haven't heard, Senator Burr of North Carolina is delaying an Armed Services Committee hearing today in protest of the passage of health care reform.
You know, because everybody loves the guy who leaves the party after losing a game of Parcheesi.
In response, Elaine Marshall blasted Burr moments ago:
“Senator Burr and his Republican colleagues need to grow up,” said Marshall. “The health care vote is over, they lost and it’s time to move on to other business. This is one more example of how Washington needs people who will get things done, not people who will stand in the way.”
The committee was scheduled to hear from Adm. Robert Willard, Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command; Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton, Commander of the U.S. Strategic Command; and Gen. Walter Sharpe, Army Commander of U.S. forces in Korea. However, before the hearing began, Burr used a procedural measure to delay the meeting.
Help Elaine Marshall restore real leadership for North Carolina by making a donation of $5 or more before the financial quarter ends on March 31st!
Richard Burr has got to go. His legendary failed leadership isn't surprising anymore, but it is shameful. It's one thing to vote "no," but it's another thing to simply prevent anyone from cleaning the mess that you and your friends created. North Carolina deserves a better leader. Elaine Marshall is that leader.
On Monday, we set a goal to raise $20,000 online from 500 donors -- already we've raised $21,885 from 578 donors. So we're upping the ante to $30,000 from 800 donors before midnight on Wednesday March 31st!
Can you help us finish strong and defeat Burr with a donation of $5 or more?
