Time to pay the Piper. How 'bout a few dollars for Edwards tonight?
Edited on Fri Feb-20-04 09:19 PM by AP
You can give as little as $5, and as much as $2000. I'm a couple hundred from my fifth target.

Every dollar up to $250 is matched by federal funds...so you can give twice.

3. You're good. I encourage you to give through my link below...
...so that we can have a measure of the political/financial power of DU.

If Edwards makes it to the GE, I'd love to see how much we all can raise.

4. How 'bout $50 tonight so he gets the matching funds now, and you
can give the other $250 if he gets the nomination?

5. Going to keep my powder dry for the GE because I don't care who...
...wins the primary. I never did. I like Edwards and Kerry equally.

6. Edwards will be in St. Paul, Minnesota on Saturday, the 21st
I'm heading to the Carpenter's union hall tomorrow to hear John Edwards. I plan on making a contribution then.

Our caucuses are on March 2nd and I'm doing my best to spread the word to friends and neighbors that Edwards is the best hope of defeating Bush. Unfortunately, some folks don't realize he is still in the race. Today, a neighbor said, "Isn't Edwards way, way, behind in the list of candidates? I thought Kerry was already the nominee." We have a lot of work to do, and FAST.

9. Sent another $100 tonight
I plan to be at $2000 by the time he gets the nomination. If he doesnt I am sending $2000 to Kerry. I really cannot afford to donate this much money, but I CANNOT and WILL NOT live in this country for another four years of Bu*h. My retirement money is going to the Democrats across the board this year.

10. Did you caucus for Edwards in Iowa?
But don't go too overboard by donating all of your retirement money.

12. And if you live in Minnesota
go attend his rally tomorrow in St. Paul - Carpenters Union Hall, 700 Olive St - and stay for a donors reception.

And with a little luck the snow mixed with freezing rain will end and the sun will come out.

14. I've donated 100 bucks.
Because there is nothing I want less right now than a Kerry nomination.

30. you've convinced me
I had poured my heart, soul and money into the Clark campaign and when it went belly up and he endorsed Kerry, I became utterly disgusted.

But since I wholeheartedly agree with: "there is nothing I want less right now than a Kerry nomination," I think I'll send Edwards some $$$.
