…in this Republican National Committee fundraiser pitch, anyway.
Dear Fellow Conservative, Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are raking in the campaign cash hand-over-fist.
They begin 2008 having raised more than $200 million combined. In the first eight days of this year, Barack Obama’s campaign bragged they had raised over $8 million — and Hillary Clinton’s campaign is right there with him.
Last year, Democrat presidential contenders and Democrat party committees combined raised more than Republicans. Liberal special interests are raising hundreds of millions of dollars from Big Labor, Hollywood elites and radical protest groups like MoveOn.org to defeat Republicans in November.
We must close the gap with the Democrats if we are to have the resources available to elect a new Republican President and Congress. Please help the RNC raise the funds we need to counter the Democrats by making a secure online contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, or $25 today.
“The Democrats and their liberal special interest allies,” the pitch by RNC Chairman Mike Duncan warns ominously, “will spend and say whatever it takes to win total control of the government. ”
You’d think conservatives would dig that kind of one-track minded approach.
