As we go into October, we have asked so much of our members already and you have dug deep and come through each and every time we have asked.
Honestly, I wouldn't take my time away from managing our field operations to send this email if it wasn't really important.
But after the Senate was unable to block a filibuster to overturn Don't Ask, Don't Tell and kill the Dream Act it is clear that we need to do more to make sure we defeat members of the Senate who stand against common-sense solutions to our problems.
We are in the midst of ADA's largest membership drive ever -- have you taken advantage of a special rate of $15.00 or made an additional gift to make sure ADA has the funds to counter the millions of dollars coming in from the Tea Party Express?
You and I have both invested a lot in this election cycle. I won't-- I can't-- let them win this because we were unable to match them dollar for dollar or door knock for door knock. Will you?
We need to stand up and match every one of the negative attacks coming down the pipeline with a response of our own, that explains why the country is moving forward and why we won't go back.
And we need you to help. Can you chip in to become a member or send an additional gift of $15 or more today? We can't do it without you and it's up to us to stem the tide of the Tea Party Express today!
