Campaign 2014: Fundraising Frenzy

Fundraising is very, very time-consuming. – Arlen Specter

With just about 44 days until Election Day 2014, the political parties are desperately trying to raise money to help their candidates.

The Republicans have a good chance to take control of the senate, but it will be very close and come down to just a few races – so both sides are trying to raise funds to get their message out. Some people predict the senate will fall into Republican hands after this election and then go back to Democrat control after the 2016 election.

Since I subscribe to receive updates via e-mail from different groups within the Democratic and Republican parties, I thought I would share some of the subject lines from their fundraising e-mails. Enjoy.

“We’ve got nothing left Jack” –This came with Nancy Pelosi’s name on it.

“heartbreaking defeat” –This came with Harry Reid’s name on it.

“A Choice & A Chance” – This one came with Hillary Clinton’s name on it.

“TAKE CARE: Do Not Delete” –This one came from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

“we’re IMPLORING you JACK” –Another one from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

“READ before deleting:” – This one came with Barack Obama’s name on it.

“FW: READ before deleting:” – This one came with Joe Biden’s name on it.

“FWD: Slipping Away” – This one came from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC)

“The Democrats most radical candidate” – From the Daines for Montana campaign.

“RE: Your missing support” – This one was from the Senate Republicans.

“Friend, this isn’t good” – This one was from the Daines for Montana campaign.

“serious setback” –This one was from the Montanans for Lewis campaign.

“Take the Navy SEAL Challenge” –This was from the Ryan Zinke campaign.

“Teach ’em a (math) lesson” – This one was from Jon Tester on behalf of Amanda Curtis.

“SINGLE-DIGITS” – This one is from the Montanans for Lewis campaign.

  1. I remember when the formula was “here’s the problem, here’s our solution, please send us money so we can fix the problem.” Now it’s just “send money,” which at least has the virtue of brevity even if it reads like a ransom note.

    • James – No kidding – it is almost like a ransom note. If you don’t send $3 we’re all gonna die! -JmB
