Time to send a message

I need your help. When the Florida Legislative Session starts in about a month, I will suspend fundraising for 60 days because I am a sitting legislator. This is a good law, but unfortunately in this case it gives a leg-up to the Republicans running for Attorney General. (None of them are sitting legislators, so they can all fundraise freely during this period.)

This is our moment to send a message that grassroots means something. We're currently the best funded campaign on either side of the aisle, and if we can bring a flood of donations in right before the legislative session, it will maintain our momentum and status as frontrunner.

So, today my campaign is announcing a “moneybomb” for 2/25. The idea is to spend the next month getting people to pledge to give online on 2/25.

Can you pledge to donate on 2/25? (Right now -- only takes a second!)

This election is really about the type of state Florida will be – and frankly my opponents have a much different vision and agenda. I believe that most people share our view – but the best way to prove that is with a tangible show of support.

Pledge to make your money talk on 2/25!

I know times are tough, but the consequences of inaction will be much more expensive. Even if you can only give a few bucks -- the number of grassroots donors is just as crucial to our ability to make a statement as the number of dollars raised. So please, make your pledge now.

Thanks either way,

Dan Gelber
