So what does the end of a quarter have to do with giving campaign money?
I see on Kos, and I just got a Kerry email about, giving money to the campaign of your choice. It is the end of the quarter, they say, tonight being the deadline. Kerry has 4 candidates on his site and a way to donate to them, and Kos made comment about certain candidates that we could donate to in key races.

But why is the end of a quarter so important? What's up with that?

2. Gotcha, thanks
Here's Kerry's email. Maybe folks will want to contribute to his four candidates. Or not. Maybe they'll want to contribute to my candidate (www.bryankennedyforcongress.org ). Or not. Maybe they should contribute to somebody for 2006, though.

Dear Erica,

Incompetence. Indictments. Misguided policies. Misplaced priorities.

Hour by hour, the Republicans who control Washington give us more reasons to pour our hearts and souls into winning the 2006 elections. The bottom line: If we want to change America's course, we've got to change the face of Congress.

Right now -- with the clock ticking toward the midnight tonight deadline -- you have a special opportunity to help key Democrats move their campaigns forward.

Keeping America's Promise is focusing its attention on four key races. Thousands of people have already stepped forward to help. It's not too late for you to join them. But, you've got to act fast.

https://contribute.keepingamericaspromise.com/slate1a.h...

Give to the candidate you feel strongest about supporting. Or donate to all four. But, whatever you do, act now.

Sincerely,

John Kerry
