I need all the help I can get.
I want to give SW Missouri voters a real choice for change come November. I have a really good feeling about this year. I know if we all work together across the country for a change in Congress, we can make history this fall.
This is conservative farm country. Few Democrats are around here. By winning this primary, I know with the way the times are, if a Democrat is going to win here, this is the time!
This is a "David vs. Goliath" campaign. Consider these facts:
Roy Blunt, Majority Whip, is the third highest ranking member of Congress
Blunt was Chief of Staff for Tom Delay
Blunt's wife was Finance Director for Republican National Campaign Committee
Blunt's wife is a Lobbyist for Phillip Morris
Phillip Morris is Blunt's biggest campaign contributor
Blunt's wife and son work for a Lobbyist that is run by Blunt's former Chief of Staff
And Blunt's son is Governor of Missouri
I've got my work cut out for me! It's going to be fun being the underdog!
But I need your help. I cannot do this alone.
Being an unknown liberal Democrat, against a strong incumbent in this conservative area, I am not getting any help from my Democratic party. With being a minority, I am not afraid to tell people what I think.
Here are a few of my campaign priorities:
Health and Nutrition for a Better America
Major Changes for Better Education
Bringing Home Our Troops
Ending the War on Terror
National Health Care for Every American
Securing Social Security
Protecting a Women's Right to Choose
Protecting Our Environment
Ending Global Warming
Lowering Gas Prices
Raising the Minimum Wage
Protecting Our Borders
Securing Private Property for Americans
Separation of Church and State
We need someone in Washington for the people. Not for big business. We need to get back to tradition.
Please help me in my fight to give voters a real choice.
