Bill O’Brien isn’t even running and McKluster is using his name to raise money for 2014.
It was an amazing feeling last night sitting listening to President Obama deliver his State of the Union. And, for that, I want to thank you- it was you and your hard work that helped get me there.
But, not even a full month in, there is already talk of an extremist opponent, Bill O’Brien, jumping in to run against me.
Our country doesn’t need more extremist partisan politics – we need leaders to move us forward. I am writing today to ask you to stand with me. With news of a possible opponent – all eyes are on us and the next 48 hours are critical.
I wish I didn’t have to ask this of you – but it’s clear we will need urgent resources earlier than ever. Please consider a gift today before our Friday deadline, and even better join my special group of supporters – Annie’s Angels – who give monthly to our campaign.
As the President said last night, America moves forward only when we do so together.
I hope that today after the President’s speech, members of Congress will start anew and put partisan politics aside, even just a little while, so we can get started on working to move this country forward together.
But, until then, we have to be prepared. Our race will be one of the most closely watched in the country and with news of a possible opponent – we need to show we will be ready. Please consider a gift today.
Thank you again for everything you have done.
