A message from Martin Sheen re: Sherrod Brown

Hello Friend,

Iím Martin Sheen. You know me best as an actor, but I grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and early on in life decided I wouldn't sit on the sidelines when it came to issues of economic and social justice. When a true leader crosses my path -- one who doesnít just talk about progressive values but embodies them -- I act. And I hope you will, too, by supporting Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown.

Sherrod is dedicated to the middle class, to seniors, and to women and families. He doesnít work for the special interests -- he works for the middle class people who make Ohio great.

Sherrod needs our help -- and this country needs the progressive voice of Sherrod Brown. This month, his campaign needs to raise $500,000. Click here to contribute today.

We place a sacred trust in our elected officials. We expect them to stand up with courage and conviction for the things we believe in.

Thatís exactly what Sherrod has done. He showed up on Day One a fighting progressive who cared first, last, and always about Ohioís working families -- and thatís the man he remains today.

Sherrod has already seen $10 million spent against him in his race. He needs to raise $500,000 this month to fight back. Can you contribute $10 or more to support him?

I played a President on TV who could change the debate with a single speech. But in real life, it doesnít work that way. In real life, itís up to progressive fighters to protect the vulnerable, hold the special interests accountable, and defeat a right-wing agenda so radical no screenwriter could conceive it.

Sherrod is one of those fighters. I hope I can count on you to join me in standing with him.

Thank you,

Martin Sheen

6. Time to send Sen. Brown another chunk of change.

I really wish I could do more to help re-elect Sherrod to the Senate, he's the real deal.
