Late this afternoon we received the following note from Jack Kingston (GA-01):
FROM THE DESK OF JACK KINGSTON
I commend the efforts of the Rightroots movement for providing a forum which seeks to help the Republican Party secure our majorities in the House and Senate, and might even push some competitive races over the finish line in November.
I strongly believe that small donations from a large number of people will help influence public policy and change the face of politics in Washington.
This is our opportunity to send a clear message to folks that Republicans don’t just beat Democrats on the streets and on Election Day, but on every battlefield, including the Internet.
I’m going to make a pledge: If Rightroots raises a total of $26,000 by 11:59 PM (EST) on Friday, August 4, I will contribute a total of $14,000 directly to some of the candidates from my Leadership PAC in the name of our movement.
It’s time for action, and these candidates need our help. Together, we can do it.
So there you have it. We have until midnight Friday to raise an additional $18,000 for the RightRoots slate. If we do, Kingston will contribute an additional $14,000 to these candidates. So the gauntlet is thrown. Please give whatever you can so we can fund these raises and take the Congressman up on his generous offer.
