Abe For Democrats - Final Fundraising Call!

The election is a little over ten days away. So that the Democratic candidates in Nevada and California can still use your money for the final days, you should contribute this weekend.

A couple of days ago I wondered whether Abraham Lincoln would vote Democratic in this election and hinted that you could do it for him by forking out some of the Abrahams in your wallet:

This is a potential wave year for Democrats. Republicans know this and are running scared as the fundraising trip of George W. Bush to California and Nevada for Doolittle and Heller have proven. You can rest assured that Republicans will try to smear Democratic candidates across the board if they're not already doing so.

That is why you need to step up to the plate and give one, two or more Abes to your favourite candidates!

Every Dollar helps! The candidates need your money for final targeted mailings, for a last TV ad push, or for GOTV efforts.

If you want to know more about the candidates you can click on their websites. Links are on the sidebar. On their websites you will also find more info how you can help out in the final days by volunteering!

To inspire you to give to the candidates I'm posting some quotes and videos below:

Rob Haswell for Assembly (CA-04):

If elected in November, what will be your priorities in the Assembly?
  • Pushing for political reform, such as Clean Money elections and real non-partisan redistricting. Regional planning solutions that give incentives for smart growth, public transportation solutions and the preservation of open space.
  • Meaningful healthcare reform.
  • Prioritizing public education so we return California to among the top public school systems in the country.

Ms. Brown, as many other candidates this year you are running for office for the first time. Why have you now decided to run for the Nevada Assembly?

I believe that Nevada is at a crossroads, we can continue with business as usual, go forward with a vision that truly answers the needs of the state, or go backwards with outdated opinions. I offer a new direction with “30” years of corporate banking experience I know how to create and work with Public/Private/Partnerships that can obtain results that benefit communities. I am the candidate that will put the people’s best interest above partisan politics. I want to share my talents, expertise, and love of this valley this is why I decided to become a candidate for Assembly District 39!
