On March 30th, 2005, I announced my candidacy for U.S. Senate. The past year has flown by and been an incredible experience. I have put more than 10,000 miles on my car and seen corners of Utah that I never would have discovered otherwise. I have met Utahns of all political stripes who have put their lives into building this state. From them, I have crafted a campaign that is robust, focused, and by the people. Many others across America have contributed time and financial support into helping this campaign succeed. It is both exciting and humbling to be in the center.
In the past quarter, we raised over $10,000. Every dollar has been stretched in this campaign. While other incumbents have raised much more, we have reached more people and received more press on less. With three days left in this quarter, I am sending an appeal for you to donate whatever you can. With our current goal of $100,000, if everyone on our mailing list was to donate $75, we would make that easily.
If you can not afford to donate now, there are many other opportunities to help. Many counties are having their Democratic county conventions in April. I am going to attend as many as physically possible. I need your help to sign up more supporters, represent me in your neighborhoods, and activating your friends and neighbors to do the same. Our yard signs have flown out the doors of the office, but if you need some either drop us a note with your address or drop by.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT! We can win this race together!
What a year! You’ve done more for democracy and the political process than most people will do in their life times. Maybe more than they would do if they were given two life times. Keep up the good work. Thank you for taking part. Thank you for honoring the process of the people, for the people. Thank you for honoring the work and effort and the time and the shed blood that that paid for the process. Thank you.
