|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE||August 2, 2011|
Have you heard the news? The Washington Republicans are panicking about our race because they know we can win– and we will win! Even Nevada political newsman, Jon Ralston wrote, “Is that fear I smell or is the National Republican Campaign Committee just happy to be here?” [Las Vegas Sun, 7/31/11]
First, it was the quarter of a million dollars they just spent buying TV ads against me.
Now they’re so worried that they’re even sending out the House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, to raise some desperate cash for my opponent. Eric Cantor isn’t just the House GOP’s second in command, he’s an architect of the dangerous Republican plan to end our Medicare.
Last week, I asked you to help me raise $15,000 to make our next TV buy that will help us to make sure Nevadans have the facts about the National Republican Campaign Committee footing the bill to attack me. Their attack ad has already been called out as “not true” by the Reno Gazette-Journal’s Fact Checker. [Reno Gazette-Journal, 7/31/11] We’re almost halfway to that goal, but I need you to dig down deep right now and help put us over the top. Will you please make a contribution of $25, $50 or more to keep our TV ads on the air for another week?
My opponent has made it clear that he’s just going to let guys like Cantor and the national GOP establishment run his campaign and do his dirty work. These are the same Washington Republican insiders whose refusal to compromise puts our jobs, families and seniors at risk through reckless cuts to Medicare and Social Security. My opponent is standing lock-step with Eric Cantor and the rest of the Beltway Republicans and that is bad news for Nevada. But you know where I stand, with you!
P.S. We have an aggressive plan that will lead us to victory on September 13, but we need your help to execute it. So please click here to make a contribution that will keep our message going strong on TV.
Please join us for the Carson City Democratic Central Committee meeting on Wednesday, August 3, at the AFSCME building,709 E. Robinson St.(corner of Roop and Robinson). The meeting begins at 7:00 PM with pizza and soda (donations accepted!)
Treasurer and CD2 candidate Kate Marshall is joining us at approximately 8:00 PM to talk to us about the CD-2 special election. Let’s turn Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District Blue!
Hope to see you there.
