I'm writing to say I'm sorry.
Since I jumped into the race for the U.S. Senate, I have asked you for money through this email list again and again. And again.
I know that it is a real pain that you get a bazillion emails asking for money. And I know that every email (including this one) always has a "donate" button at the bottom.
Believe me, I hate it too. It is my least favorite part of being a candidate for the U.S. Senate, and it's something I really didn't look forward to when I decided to run.
But I also don't kid myself. I know that this is the most expensive Senate race in the country, and I know that the Republicans are flooding Scott Brown with Wall Street money . He started $7 million ahead. We've worked hard, but the money has flowed in for him, so he is still $2 million ahead.
I also know I am able to run a competitive race without buckets of special interest money because of you, and, yes, because of all the emails. Together, we have built an organization that has raised more small donations than any other Senate campaign in the country. That's a big deal.
I was thinking about the very first contest we had in the campaign -- figuring out what should be printed on the back of our Elizabeth-for-Senate T-shirts. The winning slogan: The best senator money can't buy.
I love that sentence -- the best senator money can't buy. I say it to myself every day and every night.
I'm not going to Washington to work for Wall Street or Big Oil or billionaires -- no matter what.
I'm going to work for the people I talk with every day across Massachusetts.
A few weeks ago, Bruce and I sneaked off to the movies. We were on the platform waiting for the Red Line , when a young man walked up to introduce himself. He said he was a student, and he explained all the reasons he was supporting this campaign.
It was clear that money was tight for him -- full-time job while he's in school, two jobs in the summer, student loans, family can't help. We took a picture on his phone, and, as he was about to leave, he said, "I give you money every month, and I'm taking on hours so I can give more." I felt my chest contract , and I said thanks, but maybe he should keep the money. He said, "No, I'm part of this campaign. This is my fight too."
The student on the T-platform keeps me in this race -- able to run paid ads and to build a person-to-person grassroots organization across the Commonwealth. And for that, I'm grateful.
I'm sorry about all the requests for money. I am so grateful for your support. And I hope you forgive the "Donate" button at the bottom of every email -- and all the emails asking for money still to come.

What a loser!
Crock-a-jawea need wampum.
Injun squaw speak with forked tongue.
Permit me to doubt that one single thing she says or describes in this letter is real.
I saw the headline and who wrote it and thought she was finally going to come clean. But noooooo! Not Paleface Lizzy. The only thing she’s sorry about is that people aren’t sending her enough money. I’ve got a marketing tip for Chevrolet. Forget the Volt in Massachusetts. With those Massachusetts Democrats still supporting Paleface Lizzy, the liar and thief, there has to be a huge market in Massachusetts for armored cars. They evidently don’t mind thieves there.
“All you squaws hammer out some more purple clam shells and make much wampum for the next moon, and give to me to take to big village in Maryland!
Well, the donate button is real.
Hey Lieawatha.....you are going to need money for your LEGAL DEFENSE for Practicing LAW WITHOUT A LICENSE!!!!!
They are never really sorry until you make them really sorry.
Is ‘bazillion’ a Cherokee word or Choctaw?
I’m sorry,too,Crockajawea. No wampum for you; oh, and isn’t “bazillion” what our national debt is since Obama was immaculated?
The notion that Princess Talking Bull was waiting for a Red Line train is hilarious. I’ll bet she hasn’t done that in years, if ever unless it was for a campaign photo shoot. Or maybe she thought that riding the Red Line made her a Native American.
THAT YOU DON'T CARE ENOUGH
ABOUT NATIVE AMERICANS
AND BOGUS LAWYERS
TO GIVE ME MORE MONEY!
Is practicing law in the state of MA legal without a license?
Oh well, democRATs don't have to worry about the law in MA. The Kennedys taught us that lesson.
That is comedy gold.
