Everyone get Kerry's new email?
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 01:55 PM by whometense


Dear XXXXX,

It is now absolutely clear that the 2006 elections will represent a fundamental choice between those who want to stay the course President Bush has set - and those who want to move America forward in a more promising direction.

By acting now, you can provide essential momentum to Democratic candidates in the closest, most critical contests. But, you have to act before midnight Friday.

The September 30th FEC reporting deadline will give key Democratic Senate candidates a unique opportunity to demonstrate the strength of their campaigns. Please act now to propel one or more of these candidates toward victory.

Make a contribution to one or more of these key races before the end of quarter deadline.

Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-West Virginia)

There are two ways to incur the wrath of the Bush administration. One is to insist that the administration abide by the Constitution. The other is to ask tough questions about Bush policies. Senator Robert C. Byrd has done both as one of the Senate's most powerful and authoritative voices. As a result, the Republican Party political machine would like nothing better than to defeat him next November. Senator Byrd is an indispensable leader in the U.S. Senate. He has fought hard for the people of West Virginia and for the principles at the heart of our democracy. At a time in our nation's history when the executive branch is trying to expand its authority and one political party controls two branches of government, Senator Byrd has stood up for the Constitution and the Founding Fathers' vision of separation of powers. Now, it's time for us to stand up for him. CONTRIBUTE

Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida)

Remember Katherine Harris and the role she played in the 2000 Florida vote fiasco? Well, she's one of the GOP candidates who would like nothing better than to drive Senator Bill Nelson out of office. So, we have two priorities in this Senate race - making sure a strong Democratic Senator gets re-elected - and making certain a Republican candidate doesn't use her role in disrupting the democratic process as a stepping stone to higher office.

You can help put Florida in the winning Democratic column by providing immediate support to Senator Nelson. Whether it's stopping oil drilling off Florida's coast, preserving Social Security, or protecting our personal privacy from the intrusion of government, Bill Nelson is fighting for Florida. He has a long record of taking on powerful interests - from insurance companies to oil companies to the big banks, and he is a strong advocate for the protection of voters' rights in Florida and around the nation. He's a tough senator heading into a tough campaign and he needs your help now. CONTRIBUTE

Claire McCaskill (Missouri challenger)

Claire McCaskill is challenging incumbent Republican Jim Talent to re-capture the seat that was narrowly lost during a special election in 2002, and the race is currently deadlocked. Her victory could help narrow the GOP's advantage and add another powerful Democratic female voice to the Senate. She's already won statewide in Missouri - twice! Claire has deep rural roots and a genuine understanding of the challenges facing Missouri families. She's been a legislator, a prosecutor and a State Auditor and, in the words of the Kansas City Star, she has been "exceptional in every office she's held." Claire has promised voters that if they send her to Washington she will clean up the mess that Republicans have created for working families and help make common sense the order of the day. You can help put this exceptional leader on the road to victory by acting right now. CONTRIBUTE

Jim Pederson (Arizona challenger)

Jim Pederson is challenging Republican incumbent Senator Jon Kyl. Senator Kyl has been Example A of a strict conservative who continues to put partisan politics ahead of Arizona families. The Arizona tradition is one of independence, of putting the well-being of people ahead of party, ahead of ideology, ahead of big campaign money, and Jim Pederson will make sure that he brings this tradition with him to Washington. As one of the leading Senate challengers in the country, Jim is running a strong campaign built around common sense solutions to immigration reform, increased national security, and greater access to quality education and health care. Your help now can give this impressive Senate challenger a boost at a critical moment in the campaign. CONTRIBUTE

Make a contribution to one or more of these key races before the end of quarter deadline.

Keeping America's Promise, the political action committee that I helped found, is pulling out all the stops for these four essential Senate candidates. Give to one of them - or better still, donate to all four. But, whatever you do, act now.

Don't hesitate for a moment. With the deadline fast approaching, it's vitally important that you participate right now.

Sincerely,

John Kerry

1. I received that - Good for Kerry to help.
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 01:49 PM by Mass
I regret that Byrd is running again. At his age, he should have the wisdom to let somebody else run.

I dont know enough of the two last people, but if they can beat Talent and Kyl, it can only be better.

3. Actually,
I don't. The last few have come later than everyone else's - I have an idea they rotate the list so the order changes.


(actually he likes me best. :P )

5. I got mine this morning too
But I can't decide who to give to--I'd rather just give to KAP and let them decide.

6. Same here.
I love Byrd. Boxer sent an e-mail for him also (yesterday). But I'd rather give to KAP and let them figure out who needs it most.

7. That's a good idea
I was trying to figure out myself who would be the most in need of a donation (just can't donate to all four right now) but giving to KAP would solve the problem. Thanks GV & Ginny for the suggestion.
