I am writing because I need your help before the end of the year.
During the recently concluded legislative session, the General Assembly passed a public financing bill which applies to my re-election campaign. This bill has now been signed into law. It is imperative that I participate in the public financing program created by this new law. I need your help to ensure that I qualify.
If I am to qualify, I must receive donations averaging $40 per person from at least 750 registered North Carolina voters. Qualifying contributions must be made by personal check or money order, and they must be between $10 and $200 per person.
If you want to help me win re-election in 2008, the single most important thing you can do today is mail your contribution using the donor form linked below. If possible, please respond between now and December 18.
Please take a moment to download the form and main your contribution today. If you have already made a qualifying contribution, please encourage ten of your friends to join you in this cause.
Thank you in advance for your support.
