Wilson raised $2.7M, Miller $1.7M
The real concern, IMHO, is that Wilson raised >$2M from small dollar donors.
Are you going to stand for THAT! The guy who yells "YOU LIE", while lying about it! is beating Rob Miller? Not on our watch, he ain't!
If you can Donate To Rob Miller for Congress (SC-02) today at Act Blue, please do.
If not, no worries, I know times are hard. At least, please Recommend this diary so others can use the links throughout the day, because today is officially Fundraiser Saturday, and I am open to suggestions on how to make a winning strategy for the 2010 Elections.
For someone who is supposedly sorry about yelling "You lie!" at the president, Joe Wilson certainly cashed in on it.
On Sept. 14, Wilson's campaign doled out $52,250 to the Virginia-based digital communications firm Active Engagement for web design and online advertising. On Sept. 16, the campaign paid $42,400 to retain the David All Group — a Washington-based Republican new media firm — to help boost Wilson's profile on Twitter and other social networking sites.
All told, the Wilson campaign spent roughly $235,000 on services related to fundraising and communications strategy.
I read Sun-Tzu's "The Art of War" recently, and one of the best things I gained from it was this quote.
When he prepares everywhere he will be weak everywhere
I interpret this as part of Dr. Howard Dean's 50 State strategy, and suggest we attack different districts in different states at random, not haphazardly, but where it is least expected. This will be the focus of some of my upcoming fundraising diaries.
But, for now, I say we send a BIG answer back to Joe Wilson. I will answer his "YOU LIE!" with an equal I WILL MAKE YOU FAIL, and by doing that, I say we up the ante.
And, just to show you what we could be getting for our effort in South Carolina's 2nd District, watch this video of Rob Miller, and I think you will agree that he is light years better than Ugly Kid Joe Wilson, and South Carolina deserves better. In fact, so does America.
A class act all the way.
If you can help, I say thanks. If not, thank you anyway, and please Rec this up, so others can chip in and help hit the GOP "Lie Factory" where it hurts. If we can bring down their Bachmann's and Wilson's, if we can shoot down their rising stars we can DEMORALIZE THEM, and that is how we will win the long war of ideas.
Because all the Right's ideas = FAIL, and America deserves better.
