Jim Neal's birthday wish…
North Carolina Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jim Neal‘s birthday is today, and he’s sent out a letter asking folks join up to help toss Do-Nothing Elizabeth Dole out. First, however, he’s got to get past the primary, and one of his Dem challengers, establishment insider pol state senator Kay Hagen, has been recruited by the DSCC to knock Neal’s campaign off the rails so the spine-free, Democratic party can breathe easier with a straight candidate.
That’s tired, considering there are more things to worry about — oh, say the immorality of what is happening in Iraq, the disaster of a health care system that we have.
It’s my 51st birthday today — a good age to capture 51% of the votes!
My request of you on my birthday is simple: become an inaugural member of the Ten Squad. Ten Squads members will contribute $10 and pledge to try to raise $100 for our Campaign by raising another $10 from nine of their friends. Over the next 10 days, we want to raise $100,000 from 1,000 people. It’ll be pretty simple if you all pitch in.
Our Campaign is sending a message that North Carolinians are tired of professional politicians and want real people from the real world with fresh voices in the Senate. This Campaign is not beholden to special interests and powers-that-be, for we know that (as my mother always said) “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.”
When I’m elected as your next United States Senator on November 4th 2008, I’ll be going to Washington to represent all the people of this state, regardless if they supported me or not. That’s not only what I’ll be elected to do, it’s the right thing to do.
Get started as a member of the Ten Squad right now. Go to www.jimnealforsenate.com and contribute $10 and then email or call your friends, family and associates to do the same.
Thanks to all of you for your support.
Read the latest on the issues in this Senate race over at BlueNC, Anglico’s diary “The Senate Race: Substance and Style“. You’ll get a good taste of Hagen, a politician through and through. Obviously she’s better than Dole, but it’s business as usual.
