Charlie Crist's birthday grab

16

July

Charlie Crist's birthday is coming up, but no need to go hunt for the wrapping paper. Florida's Governor doesn't want something that comes in a box. He wants cash.

"Carole reminds me my birthday is coming up next Saturday," claimed a campaign message sent out this morning. "No gift would mean more to me than to see my vision of a people-powered campaign in action."

Read the full letter after the jump.

Birthday Challenge - 100K by July 24th

Dearest Friends,

Spirits on the campaign trail are high.  We are ahead in the polls.  Reuters just released a poll showing us in the lead, and a Florida Chamber of Commerce poll from a few weeks before showed the same.

If nothing else, these numbers mean our message of strong, independent leadership is reaching people, and I thank you for helping to make this campaign a success. 

Back when we started this journey, I promised Florida that this campaign would be different -- that together, we would form a People's Campaign, reclaiming Washington for the hard working people here at home. 

Carole reminds me my birthday is coming up next Saturday.  No gift would mean more to me than to see my vision of a people-powered campaign in action.

Please tell your friends and family: our goal is to reach $100,000 in small contributions by my birthday, July 24th. 

Please contribute whatever you can, in however small an amount, and I promise to continue giving everything I have in the fight for Florida's future.

Many thanks,



Charlie Crist
