The latest E-mail from Mike Huckabee and HuckPAC:
Well it’s summer and things are predictably heating up. Not just in your backyard but on Capitol Hill as well.
Republicans in the House and Senate are fighting for a balanced energy plan to bring relief to families everywhere. All week Republican legislators in the House have staged a rally demanding Speaker Nancy Pelosi call back the Congress for a special session and an up or down vote on a comprehensive energy plan that includes offshore drilling.
In the Senate, Republicans have gone to the airwaves with a simple but powerful message demanding action on a balanced energy plan. You can see their video here. I am proud to say it includes two Huck PAC endorsed candidates: Lamar Alexander and Elizabeth Dole. After you watch the video I encourage you to share it with family and friends.
Second, please help us close the gap on our goal of 2,000 contributions by August 20. Since last Thursday we have had 485 individuals make an online contribution towards our goal. If you haven’t made a contribution yet, please consider doing so today. With a contribution of $10 or more we will count your contribution towards our goal. If you are willing to match the average contribution of your fellow supporters, it is $65. Regardless of what you contribute, what is important is that you participate. Huck PAC is fully funded by individuals like you.
Finally, and this is something we are all excited about, I wanted to share an idea we had and get your feedback. Everyone knows how committed our supporters were during the campaign. Time after time we overcame long odds to shock the pundits because of the hard work of our volunteers. In September we want to launch a campaign to mobilize Huckabee supporters once again, this time in support of our favorite candidates. With your help, we will set a goal of X hours and then track the hours on our front page like we used to track dollars raised online during the campaign. Participating volunteers can help any candidate of their choosing. All they need to do is tell us who the candidate is and then login on our website the number of hours they volunteered for (so they are counted towards our total). The candidate you help does not have to be a Huck PAC endorsed candidate. If this effort is successful, we will launch it again in October and set a higher goal for our team.
Do you like this idea? Please vote here.
To recap, if you have a moment please do three things for me today: watch this video, make a contribution towards our August online fundraising goal and tell me what you think about our Volunteer idea in September.
Fighting for our values,
