John Kerry Continues Fight for Lamont, Candidates Making Iraq a Central Issue

by Pamela Leavey

Today, marks day two of John Kerry’s national fundraising effort for Ned Lamont, Daniel Akaka, and Bob Menendez. Yesterday caused a stir in the media, as news outlets reported Kerry was revving up his political machine to raise money for anti-war candidates.

Kerry will tap into his 3 million person email list for a second time in 48 hours, to continue his national fundraising effort for three Senate candidates who Kerry said yesterday, “have had the courage to stand up against the Bush Administration’s broken policy in Iraq.” Below is a copy of the email:

Dear Friend,

People who live in white houses shouldn’t throw stones.

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove should know better, but it’s no surprise they don’t. For almost five years now, every time they’ve got their backs to the wall politically, they play “the fear card.” The latest example: Dick Cheney claiming that Democratic candidates who dare to challenge the Bush White House on Iraq are “emboldening terrorists.”

What’s worse, and startling, is that in Connecticut Joe Lieberman is now echoing their intolerable rhetoric attacking the Democratic Senate nominee.

It won’t work. We won’t let it work.

HELP WIN THREE CRUCIAL SENATE RACES.

In Connecticut, New Jersey and Hawaii, this cynical Bush-Cheney strategy is running aground because our stand-up candidates are exposing the failed policies, botched strategies, and mind-boggling incompetence of the Bush White House that have squandered America’s treasure, kept Osama Bin Laden on the loose, and cost the lives and limbs of our brave young people.

If the Bush administration could plan and execute the war on terror as well as it executes its shameless pre-election fear-mongering, we’d all be a lot safer.

That’s what strong, principled Senate candidates like Ned Lamont, Bob Menendez, and Dan Akaka are making clear to voters in three of America’s closest, high-stakes Senate contests.

HELP WIN THREE CRUCIAL SENATE RACES.

Our candidates are refusing to buckle or bend in the face of withering attacks by shameless politicians.

I urge you to stand with these candidates now. Because when we help them win, the cynical tactics of the Bush-Cheney-Rove political machine will lose their power.

There’s only one way we can win. We’ve got to help our candidates give back as good as they get.

We’ll meet every shameless attack with more energy, every distorting ad with more passion, and every ugly appeal to fear with more determination.

And 82 days from now, we’ll celebrate the election of standup Democrats all across America.

We’ll teach them, once and for all, that people who live in white houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Let’s get it done.

Sincerely,

John Kerry
