With our primary campaign in its final weekend before Election Day (June 5), please share the info below with people you know who might be inclined to make a contribution at this crucial time. We need to be able to raise an appreciable amount of money before Monday morning so we can fully implement the rest of our "messaging program" to voters.
The Solomon for Congress campaign:
Down to the wire, needing your help
Following up on recent articles by former Congressman Alan Grayson endorsing Norman Solomon for Congress ("Support the Candidate Who Spent 40 Days in Jail" and "The FBI Had a File on Him When He Was 14"), the renowned blogger Digby wrote: "Think Norman Solomon -- a progressive leader with a lifetime of liberal activism representing a deep blue district, unencumbered by obligation to business or the Democratic establishment."
Just days away from the June 5 election for this open seat in a very progressive Northern California district, it’s crucial that we raise enough money to get our message to high propensity voters.
We’ve got plenty to build on -- including endorsements from SEIU California, the California Federation of Teachers, and ILWU, more than 1,000 volunteers signed up and more than 6,000 discrete donors.
The latest polling released in this race, conducted by Celinda Lake's firm, shows that we're well-positioned to advance past the primary and make history in the fall, but the election is likely to be close.
Now, facing two corporate-backed Democrats during the final stretch of the primary campaign, we urgently need your help so we can effectively spread our message to voters between now and Election Day.
Our campaign is not only about winning -- it's also about speaking truthfully and challenging a status quo that’s literally unsustainable.
In that spirit, Norman recently did a wide-ranging interviews with Truthout (“What Makes a Healthy Progressive Ecosystem”).
Here's Norman, quoted as the last word in a recent Marin Independent Journal article: "We're a totally grassroots campaign with more than 1,000 volunteers. You can't put a price tag on that. That's human value-added and human values added."
Please give today, and let's show that genuine grassroots can beat high-priced AstroTurf.
