This morning, the johnkerry.com community will break our all-time email fundraising record for the year: in the last 48 hours, people on John Kerry's email list have donated $900,000 to 4 Senate candidates in the most critical races in the country: Harold Ford, Jr. (TN), Jim Webb (VA), Claire McCaskill (MO), and Bob Menendez (NJ).
When we called John Kerry with the totals this morning, he sent along this message to thank everyone who's pitching in to win back the Congress:
"You are incredible! The story of what the johnkerry.com community has done over the last two years to win these mid term elections is one of best untold stories in politics. You could've licked your wounds, you could've given up, but you kept fighting, you dug deeper, you got stronger — and now with it all on the line in the last 48 hours you contributed $900,000 to these must-win Senate races. You've scared the hell out of Ken Mehlman and the Republicans! Now it's onwards. Today I'm with Admiral Sestak and Patrick Murphy in Teresa's home state of Pennsylvania, defending two veterans who will change the character of Congress. Let's go!"
Way to go Kerry community! Keep up the momentum!
