An astute Sonoran Alliance reader received the following email yesterday. In fact, I’ve received several email over the last 12 hours from outraged conservatives who say that John McCain has some nerve. Here is the email.
Today I need your help. Early voting for my primary reelection will begin in just 63 days, and to ensure voters hear our message we must continue to advertise on radio and television across Arizona.
We’re releasing a series of new ads about my work on behalf of the people of Arizona and about my opponent’s record of support for wasteful earmark spending. Our target is to raise an additional $30,000 in the next 72 hours to help expand our advertising buy and I hope you will respond immediately with a generous contribution of $25 or more right away.
Unfortunately, instead of finding solutions to our state and nation’s many challenges, my primary opponent, former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, would rather spend his time misrepresenting both my record and now, history itself. Congressman Hayworth can’t seem to get his facts straight lately. Not only has he launched false attacks on me, but he recently erroneously stated the United States never declared war on Nazi Germany during World War II. We simply cannot afford to send someone to the U.S. Senate who plays loosely with the facts. The American people deserve better.
And we certainly cannot afford to send a failed former Congressman who supported thousands of earmarks worth billions of dollars before voters kicked him out of office. Let me just give you three examples of his outrageous earmark votes when he was in Congress: $5.8 million for Vermont snowmobile trail, $250,000 to control Maui seaweed, and we all remember the infamous $223 million “Bridge to Nowhere.”
My friend, your past support has allowed my reelection campaign to respond to my opponent’s attacks with effective advertisements. However, because this is the most competitive reelection campaign I have ever faced we must remain on the air with a strong advertising campaign from now until Election Day.
This means our campaign must raise $30,000 in the next 72 hours to help fund our latest ad buy. I ask that you help us reach this goal with an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more. Your contribution in advance of our deadline will ensure I am able to communicate the facts to millions of Arizona voters.
I am committed to our shared conservative values and pledge to continue representing and fighting for these if reelected. So I ask you to please renew your commitment to my campaign today with a generous donation of any amount.
Thank you for your continued friendship and generosity.
Since the radio and television attacks began on JD Hayworth (before he was even a candidate!) John McCain’s campaign has spent around $3 MILLION on attack ads. Now he has the gall to beg for more money to make more attacks on JD Hayworth!?!? Give us a break!
Let’s remind our readers of the fabulous life that John McCain leads…
