$150,000 MoneyBomb For Joe Miller - U.S. Senate
 

Part of an email from Tea Party Express, OurCountryPAC:

We are trying to do a MoneyBomb to raise $150,000 - $250,000 by Monday evening so we can keep buying more TV, more cable, more radio and last minute newspaper and Internet ads.

A brand new poll by RT Nielson research shows that the critical U.S. Senate race between Conservative Republican Joe Miller and Liberal incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski has dramatically tightened as the conservative candidate, Joe Miller, has gained 25% on his rival.

Three weeks ago this race looked to be a lock for Sen. Murkowski as she led 62%-24%.  Now that margin is down to 46.91%-35.39%.  Murkowski is below the critical 50% threshold an incumbent needs for re-election and she is continuing to drop.

This race takes place in just 4 days - and we have a chance for a shocking historic victory for the tea party movement and the constitutionalist conservative candidate, Joe Miller.  This election is VITAL to stopping the Democrats from maintaining control of the Senate - right now they can use Democrat votes plus those of Liberal Republicans such as Murkowski, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe to hold power.  If Murkowski loses that all changes.

We've launched a $150,000 MoneyBomb to buy every remaining TV ad, radio ad and newspaper ad we can to win this election and we urgently need your help.

We need you to please make the most generous contribution you can afford to support this effort - HERE.

If you can afford a contribution of $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more it will be extremely helpful.

To fully fund this effort we still need at least 250 conservatives from across America to donate $500 or more within the next 72 hours.  Make a contribution online - HERE.

If you prefer you can mail in a contribution payable to "Tea Party Express" to our headquarters:

Miller Overwhelming Murkowski (Facebook analuysis)

Vanity | 08/18/2010 | Bices Crossroads

I have been reading some of the reports that tout U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (Rino-Alaska) and her big fundraising advantage over conservative challenger Joe Miller in the august 24 Alaska GOP primary.
These articles usually reference a poll over a month old commissioned by a Democrat candidate for Governor, Ethan Berkowitz, showing Murkowski with a wide lead.
Leaving aside the fact that primaries are hard to poll, especially in a state like Alaska, where it takes a genuine effort to vote, a poll commissioned by a Dem candidate for governor measuring support in the GOP primary for Senate is curious,...

Joe Miller
WRANGELL (2010-08-20) Joe Miller's credentials speak for themselves. The West Point and Yale Law graduate became the youngest Alaska Magistrate judge at the age of 30. He was awarded the Bronze Star during the First Gulf War. He's also a successful attorney. (continued at the link in the title)

Very good interview with Miller in Alaska today!

Audio at the link in the title.

I received an email just from Todd Palin and contributed a bit. Also sent Cornyn an email and asked why he hasn’t shown up to help this young man even though I know the standard response he sends to all of my email by heart.

Thanks Clintonfatigued!

Todd Palin also supports Joe Miller.

Here is an email from him supporting the MoneyBomb:

 


Fellow Patriots:


A critical election for U.S. Senate is just 4 days away and constitutional conservatives across America need to rally together to support Conservative Republican Joe Miller for U.S. Senate in Alaska.  Joe is up against the political establishment and special interests in Alaska, and I can tell you first hand that my own family has had to face such battles before.  It’s not easy, and Joe needs your help.


Fortunately the Tea Party Express has stepped up to the plate, spending over $400,000 already in the battle to support Joe Miller.  The problem is that Joe’s opponent has received millions of dollars from the political establishment in this race alone.  We must level the playing field.  So I am asking you to please make a contribution to this campaign.


I don’t typically send out emails asking people to support fundraising drives.  But today the Tea Party Express received the results from their latest polling which they graciously shared with me.  The results show that we have gained 25% for Joe Miller in just the past 2 ½ weeks.  We’ve got the momentum, and victory is within reach, but there is no time to waste.  We must act now.


At a time where our leaders in Washington have failed us we desperately need new leaders who have the courage and guts to stand up to the special interests and the political establishment. Joe Miller has the background, experience, and commitment to the constitution that is desperately lacking in Washington.  A West Point graduate and Bronze Star recipient, Joe is also a constitutional scholar, serving as the youngest federal magistrate in Alaska history.


Joe Miller is a principled conservative who stands on his beliefs, he doesn’t change his views based on which way the political winds are blowing and he can’t be bought off. 


So would you please consider making a contribution to the Tea Party Express’ campaign in support of Joe Miller.  We’re trying to raise $150,000 in the next 48 hours.  I know we can reach this goal if enough of you step forward and make a generous contribution.  You can contribute by clicking –here


Our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortune and sacred honor for this Republic.  I hope you’ll sacrifice a contribution to help elect a Constitutional Conservative like Joe Miller to the U.S. Senate.


Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,


Todd Palin

FYI, Joe Miller had a good interview with Mark Levin on Levin’s nationally syndicated radio show last evening (early afternoon in Alaska). Miller said he is running dead even and needs to get out the vote on Tuesday.

Friends, we are down to just 4 days until the critical Senate election in Alaska.   Today Liberal Senator Lisa Murkowski's campaign team began trying to buy up every last TV and radio ad slot in the state of Alaska.

Our campaign team was notified by numerous TV and radio stations as to what was happening and we are now trying to make sure we buy at least as many ads as she does.  The problem is she has way more money than we do.   So right now we can't afford to keep up with her.  We desperately need your help.  Time is slipping away from us, and we need to raise $150,000 between now and Monday evening.  Please help us!

Please, make the most generous contribution you can afford - HERE.

If you can afford a contribution of $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more it will be extremely helpful.

To fully fund this effort we still need at least 17 more conservatives to donate $500 or more within the next 24 hours.  Make a contribution online - HERE.

Palins help Miller's final fundraising push
Posted: August 20th, 2010 08:28 PM ET

From

Washington (CNN) - Sarah Palin's support for Republican Senate hopeful Joe Miller became a true family act on Friday, just days before the Alaska primary.

Palin, who endorsed Miller in June, posted another letter of support on her Facebook page Friday, and the former Alaska governor's husband Todd penned a fundraising letter that was mailed to Tea Party Express supporters.

Noting that he rarely sends fundraising letters, Todd said the effort is designed to raise $150,000 in the next 48 hours. (Excerpt, read the rest Here)

I just thought it was great that he was doing this. I’m sure he does much more that we don’t know about and enjoyed seeing him on Greta earlier in the week. He is one cool First Dude and as a couple they are such a departure from what we have to look at and listen to now!

Sarah and Todd's yard sign!

Joe Miller is Ready to Win for Alaska!

by Sarah Palin on Friday, August 20, 2010 at 4:35pm

We’re pleased to learn that recent poll results show the Alaska senate race between Joe Miller, a decorated Desert Storm war veteran, former judge, and proven Commonsense Conservative, and incumbent Lisa Murkowski is getting very close. Joe Miller has surged in the polls and is gaining strong momentum, while Lisa Murkowski has taken a big downward loss.

Joe’s campaign needs to raise about $30,000 for a crucial final media buy. We can do it if we all pull together.

Please go to Joe’s website HERE, and donate to his campaign. Let’s raise $1,000 for each of the 30 years this senate seat has been locked in by the Murkowski family. The only way for our state to reach its potential, and to save our country, is to elect reformers who will fight for Alaska and all America and will stand up against the liberal Washington agenda.

Todd and Sarah Palin

Unconfirmed reports say as of 10:30 this morning, the Tea Party Moneybomb had raised $87,000. Their goal is $150,000 by Tuesday. This race is very winnable. Pitch in what you can folks.

Absolutely, he said on Levin’s show if he gets 50,000 votes he wins this thing. Based on Wyoming’s primary last week, a state with a little smaller population than Alaska. Their turnout for the Republican Primary with a heavily contested Governor’s race was 105,000.

So 50,000 or so in Alaska seems about right considering it’s more of a Independent state where people don’t like to declare party.

And now it is up to $114,649!

An email from Debbie Lee at 8:30 this morning:


Hello, Debbie Lee here, the mother of the first Navy SEAL killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  For the past 6 weeks I've traveled across Alaska campaigning for Joe Miller - a true constitutitonal conservative - and his campaign for U.S. Senate.

When my son, Marc Alan Lee, was killed in Iraq I vowed I would use my voice to carry on the fight for this country here on the homefront, and that's exactly what I've been doing.

This week the critical Alaska GOP Senate Primary takes place.  Either we as a people are going to stand on the principles of freedom and liberty that our Constitution provides us, or we can keep electing more of the same failed politicians like Sen. Lisa Murkowski.  She has become one of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama's best allies because they know they can count on her to stab her own party in the back - and that's what she's done over 300 times now in the Senate.

We must defeat Sen. Murkowski - but we need your help to be successful.  We're in the final 24 hours of our $150,000 MoneyBomb for Joe Miller.  So far we've raised $114,649.  Let's not only reach that goal, let's exceed it!  My family has never quit, we've never given up, and I feel that we as patriots must have the same approach if we are truly going to take our country back.

Please, make the most generous contribution you can afford - HERE.

If you can afford a contribution of $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more it will be extremely helpful.

To fully fund this effort we still need at least 12 more conservatives to donate $500 or more within the next 24 hours.  Make a contribution online - HERE.


If you prefer you can mail in a contribution payable to "Tea Party Express" to our headquarters:

Phone from home to help Joe Miller on his senate run against liberal GOPer Lisa Murkowski!



After canvassing the great state of Alaska for the past 7 weeks, we are down to just 2 days before Tuesday's critical primary election.  We have been telling you about the Liberal RINO (Republican in name only) Lisa Murkowski and her conservative opponent Joe Miller. Now is your chance to get involved in this election that can send shockwaves across the nation. 

 

We need volunteers who can make phone call from the comfort of their own homes to support Joe Miller's conservative campaign.  The program is simple, send an email to PhoneFromHome@TeaPartyExpress.org and we will send you a list of numbers of Alaskan voters and a script to read from.  Many of us have been hit hard by the economic recession and are unable to make monetary contributions and this is your opportunity to help send a constitutional conservative to Washington.

Subject: MoneyBomb at $140,000 - As Murkowski Runs Scared and Goes Negative


Our MoneyBomb for Joe Miller is having a major impact friends!  We've reached $140,000 towards our $150,000 goal.  And now Senator Lisa Murkowski, responding to our barrage of advertising for Joe Miller - and polls showing her lead shrinking - is showing signs that she's running scared.

Today she released her first negative ad against Joe Miller.  At the end of the campaign when she should be "sealing the deal" and ending on a positive note, she is instead forced to try to smear Joe Miller and stop his surge in the polls.

Our efforts are working, friends.  But we have little time to push Joe Miller over the top.  We've almost run out of time to place our final Election Day ads, and we urgently need your financial support one last time!

Please, make the most generous contribution you can afford - HERE.

If you can afford a contribution of $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more it will be extremely helpful.

To fully fund this effort we still need at least 6 more conservatives to donate $500 or more within the next 24 hours.  Make a contribution online - HERE.


If you prefer you can mail in a contribution payable to "Tea Party Express" to our headquarters:

Almost there, only $10,000 more to go!

Thanks to everyone for your help, we need Joe Miller as Senator from Alaska!
