Got an email today from Jim Himes. It had a couple of pictures of Himes on the campaign trail last year, a few words about how great it was that he’d won and all… and then this:
I know you have invested a tremendous amount in my husband and the future of this country. But right now, your continued participation in the political process is more important than ever
It’s hard to believe, but it’s time for us to make sure Jim’s campaign for reelection comes out of the box looking strong.
A contribution of $1000, $500, $250, or even $50 today will go a long way to ensuring we reach the end of the path this historic election has set us out upon.
Please help Jim come out of the box looking strong by contributing today.
$1000? Wow. I must be rich! That’s actually pretty comforting in these times.
I guess they could use the money, as the email had at least one punctuation error (see if you can spot it in the quote above) and some sloppy HTML work.
This was sent out not just to supporters, by the way, but to the press list. Oops. However, the story on On Background does say that the NRCC is already targeting Himes. No surprise there.
