Loranne Ausley's grueling fundraising race
Pretty creative fundraising pitch by Democratic chief financial officer Loranne Ausley:
You all know about my race for CFO against Jeff Atwater. It is the race of a lifetime. But this Saturday I have another race and a different opponent. I would like to introduce you all to my campaign manager Jonathan Ducote. Jonathan and I will be competing in the North Florida Olympic Triathlon at Cherry Lake, which consists of a .9 mile swim, a 25 mile bike ride and a 6.2 mile run.
What first began as bonding experience for the two of us has now evolved into a full blown rivalry. Twenty-eight year old Jonathan actually believes he has a chance at beating me. Youth vs. experience. We are putting it to the test. What do you think?
And let's make this a little more interesting. If you think Jonathan has a chance, please make a $28 contribution to my campaign. If you think I am going to win, please make a $46 contribution. I don't know about you, but I think there are going to be a few more $46 contributions.
