Kerry E-Mail on Final Four Senate races to contribute to
Advertisements [?]
Dear TayTay,

This is it. The Republicans have circled their wagons and decided that control of the Senate is down to four states. They are going to throw every desperate, lying, misleading, dirty tactic they have left in the Republican playbook at our candidates.

It's going to be a long two weeks. But even the Republicans know that if we win in Virginia, Missouri, Tennessee, and New Jersey, then Democrats will take back the Senate. It's that simple.

Together, we have given to or raised more than $11 million dollars for Democratic candidates and committees since the end of 2004. Every day we are spending and giving more to elect Democrats. Every day. But we can't stop now.

In two weeks, Election Day will be here. But to win, we need to make a final push starting right now.

The cash that candidates have on hand by this Friday will determine how large their final media buys can be. And these four Senate races are so close that the size of Friday's media buys may be the difference between victory and defeat.

Will you join us in lending your immediate support to four must-win Senate candidates?

Take back the Senate: contribute to candidates' final media buys

In Tennessee, Harold Ford, Jr. is running for the history books. He opposes President Bush's failed "stay the course" policy in Iraq and supports Democrats' efforts to achieve energy independence. His victory on the Tuesday after next will bring one of the most impressive voices of his generation to the Senate.

"It's time for a Senator on OUR side." That's what Claire McCaskill is saying all across Missouri in her effort to unseat Senator Jim Talent, a Bush rubber-stamp Republican who was recently named by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) one of the "Oil Slick Seven" for doing the bidding of Big Oil. The Talent campaign has launched vicious, personal attacks against Claire McCaskill. With your help, we can make sure that Missouri's voters see through his unwillingness to tell them what he really believes in.

Take back the Senate: contribute to candidates' final media buys

The next person we need by our side in the Senate -- Bob Menendez -- is already there and already leading the way on one critical issue after another, starting with Iraq. Bob had the courage to vote in favor of my amendment to change course, set a deadline in Iraq, and bring our heroes home. He has been endorsed by the LCV for his outstanding record in the environmental community, and he deserves to win election to a full term in the Senate.

Jim Webb in Virginia, a decorated Vietnam veteran and former Secretary of the Navy, is our fourth must-win Senate candidate. He's running neck-and-neck against George Allen, the GOP incumbent who -- just a few short weeks ago -- was considered all but unbeatable. Allen, whose true character has been put on display for Virginia and the nation to see this fall, has been placed on the LCV's "Dirty Dozen" list of the 12 members of Congress with the worst environmental records.

Take back the Senate: contribute to candidates' final media buys

In each of these four key races, we've got momentum on our side. But in every one of them, the outcome is up for grabs. Pull out all the stops. Let's get it done. Let's win.

Gee, to bad Kerry doesn't use his influence to raise money for Dems. Sigh!
