I got this emailed to me. I thought it was pretty compelling - so let'd do it folks - let's rally and help this guy so we can get rid of Gray Davis.
CHAIRMAN -- SIMON FOR GOVERNOR
March 20, 2002
Thank you for all of the time and assistance you have provided the Simon for Governor campaign during the course of the past several months.
The victory we have achieved would not have been possible without the assistance of a great many individuals working together as a team. And now our team faces a new challenge -- unseating Gray Davis in November.
The pundits said there was no way our team would ever be successful in winning the nomination. But boy were they wrong.
Our victory was so spectacular it sent shockwaves around the world. Here are a few interesting links you should check out to see how the race was covered. You'll enjoy the last link the most as it reveals that we have already jumped to a lead over Gray Davis.
CNN on our victory
William F. Buckley Jr. wrote eloquently about Bill's win
Bill is even the Weekly Standard's cover story this week
Yahoo! and the Associated Press have a collection of photos from the election
*** Bill Simon has now surged ahead to a 7-percentage point lead! ***
And now as the Republican nominee we have the important mission of liberating California from the destructive rule of Gray Davis. If we are going to be successful in this effort we are going to need to work even harder than we did in the primary.
I consider you to be a valuable member of the Simon For Governor team and today I am designating you a Simon Victory Squad team member. As a Simon Victory Squad member you will lead the Simon effort in your own area and receive updates on the campaign and our strategy for victory. I am counting on you to provide our campaign with your own ideas and recommendations as the campaign heats up. You are the eyes and ears of our campaign and your contributions and observations will prove invaluable.
The first step we must take is to make sure we match Gray Davis for each and every dollar he puts into television and radio ads. We know that Davis already has close to $30 million ready to use to smear Bill Simon on radio and television. And we know that his liberal friends and special interest groups will be pouring millions of dollars more into his campaign.
That's why I need you to make a contribution right away to Bill's campaign. We need to be on the air first with a positive message about how we can get California back on the right track.
You can make a contribution right now via Bill Simon's website at the following address. Just click on the link and follow the instructions on the screen:

Thank you again for all of your efforts in helping Bill to win the Republican nomination. This so much reminds me of the campaign in 1966 when we elected Ronald Reagan against all of the odds and conventional wisdom.
I am counting on you to continue helping Bill in this extremely important time in the history of California.
Chairman, Simon For Governor Campaign

In my case it was emailed yesterday, but arrived in my email today. My email is being delayed over 24 hours in some cases. Anyone else having this problem?
Wise guy, so why didn't YOU post it! LOL
I didn't think to post it at FR until I was just cleaning out my mailbox and realized I should forward it to some friends (which I did) and then post here.
I am already a Simon contributor.
Sounds to me like it might be a manifestation of the Chilean Ping Conspiracy
I've had this problem before - it usually is an ISP issue. :(
I was hoping to see some of those big red and blue Impeach98 FONTS that we are all so fond of here at FR.
That's about as urgent as it gets for the Free Republic community.
I will do what I can, which at the moment, besides staying afloat, means saying---"It's simple, VOTE--
