My close personal friend John Kerry just sent me this letter:
(that’s what he calls me),
It is sickening. But not surprising.
Today’s Republican Party is so depraved that they’re running ads in Florida trying to connect a Democratic candidate to 9/11 attacker Mohammed Atta. They’re in North Carolina attacking Democratic Senate candidate Kay Hagan’s faith and character. And in Colorado, Democratic Senate candidate Mark Udall is the target of a GOP robocall campaign making the insane accusation that he supports human cloning.
It’s the same political strategy of fear and resentment we’ve seen for 30 years.
But this year they will fail miserably. Because our side has the answers America is looking for. And no two-bit attack ads will change that reality.
Our job in the hours and days ahead is to make sure our Senate candidates have every resource they need to rise above the attacks. We need more ads, more phone calls, and more voter-to-voter contact.
It’s going to require the DSCC raising $100,000 in the 15 hours before midnight. And we’ve got to have you with us. Give right now and a group of Democratic senators will TRIPLE every contribution before the deadline.
Your contribution of any amount – even as little as $5 – will combine with thousands of others to help us fight back over the last five days
Give my regards to Amanda and Julia.
I of course immediately sent in my fifty bucks, because THIS IS THE TIME.
