As readers here have no doubt noticed I have been MIA here for some time now. I do spend what free time I can posting links to my Twitter Feed, however, I just don’t have much time to write here. I wanted to chime in today though and share this email just received from Senator John Kerry on the special election here in Massachusetts on Tuesday January 19.
So I am here today to appeal to readers to please do what you can to help Martha Coakley in this critical special election. You can sign up to volunteer here, donate directly to her campaign here or donate via the DSCC link provided in the copy of the email below from Senator John Kerry:
This is it – the final 72 hours are what make or break elections. J.B. Poersch at the DSCC believes this election is going to be decided by just a handful of votes. That’s why we must get every last Democrat out to vote for Martha Coakley, and we need your help. It’s not too late to make the winning difference in this race.
The far right wing – the out-of-state tea bagger crowd – has invaded Massachusetts. Republican Scott Brown is trying to deny his relationship with them – but that’s a little hard to do when he’s speaking at their events, and they’re touting his promise to be the 41st senator needed to kill health care reform. And they are raising money to help Brown – more than $1 million in one day.
But I believe in Martha – and in your willingness to assist her in these final crucial hours. Martha Coakley is a fighter for Massachusetts as attorney general and will be a fighter in the Senate – but only if we keep pushing right up until the polls close on Tuesday. Your immediate online gift to the DSCC will make a difference on the ground.
Electing Martha means even more than giving Massachusetts a capable leader to carry on the fights that meant everything to Sen. Kennedy. It means standing up to the big insurance companies and the big banks and passing health care reform, financial reform and the rest of President Obama’s agenda. We’ve got 72 hours. Let’s make this happen.
Sen. John Kerry
Thank you… Let’s win this one for Ted Kennedy and make sure we can pass the ever so critical Heath Care Reform that Kennedy spent a lifetime fighting for.
