This is a little scary, but important to know…
We know you’re getting a lot of emails from progressive campaigns today asking for your support, so we thought it would be helpful to update you on the status of this race. Your contributions are the difference in this election, and we need your help to defeat our powerful “insider” opponent.
Here’s what you need to know at this moment:
1. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is preparing to launch television ads for this election, and while we don’t yet know the content of those ads, we expect her campaign will attempt to (a) twist the facts to make our opponent’s record look progressive (which it is not) and (b) attack Tim Canova and the grassroots campaign that we’ve built.
2. Despite saying that debates were good for the Democratic Party, our opponent is still refusing to debate Tim Canova in the district.
3. And while we won’t know the full extent of this until after the FEC filing period this summer, we know Wasserman Schultz has significantly increased her fundraising from corporations, wealthy elites, and special interest groups. She is amassing a war chest that could drown us out and make it impossible to win.
Now, that might sound scary, but the reality is that we have never been closer to victory than we are right now. Our opponent is unprepared to face a serious challenge this election, and while she’s working overtime to raise money and launch TV ads, we’ve put ourselves in a position to do what everyone in the establishment thought was impossible.
We’re asking you to help us keep the momentum today. We have an important fundraising deadline this evening. In the next few days, we’ll be making hard choices about our budget and what we need and can afford to do to win this election. If you can spare a small donation today — along with thousands of others who contribute to this campaign — we will have the resources to win this election.
Your financial support right now is the single most important thing you can do to help our growing movement in Florida, especially with our opponent prepping deceitful television ads. We need to be ready to fight back and make sure the voters of this district know the truth about Tim Canova and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
