Today is a banner day for our campaign. For those of you that have been following along, we appreciate your continued support. We have two big announcements today, so let’s jump right in.
Many of you know that we have been working hard for seven weeks at this point, and we’re proud to announce that we are ready to accept contributions online for the first time. This is a small, but critical step, in our campaign at this point. You can find the link at http://hartlineforcongress.com/contributions.html
As many of you already know, this blog is normally reserved for opinion and personal statements. However, this is an important piece of our campaign. We are currently in the middle of building the campaign from the ground up, and our need for contributions is critical at this phase.
We have been in contact with lots of people who have expressed their support vocally and financially. Some have chosen to support us because we will return our Country to a place of principled governance, entrepreneurial strength, liberty and so much more. If you support those ideals, then help support us now.
There are plenty of reasons to support this campaign. We believe we can unseat the current party from its more than a century-long grip on Tennessee’s 5th district in November. We need your help to do so. This is where the second major announcement comes in.
We are about to roll out a serious contribution program across Middle Tennessee, and we need your help to make it happen. We are asking the following from our supporters:
1. We need supporters to commit to host a gathering in their home before April.
2. We need those hosts/hostesses to invite as many friends, family, co-workers, etc. to attend.
3. We need supporters to let those folks know that Jeff will be speaking at those gatherings.
4. We need supporters to let those folks know that Jeff is asking for their support as well.
5. We need supporters to set a fundraising goal of no less than $5,000 for each gathering.
6. We need supporters to help us make a statement.
If we are going to make a statement in this district, we need to close out our first quarter with a bang. Raising over $150,000 will help us accomplish that goal. We believe we can do this. We believe you can do it too.
I am personally going to host an event like this before the end of March. I am going to invite 100 of my friends that I believe care about the future of America. I am going to ask all of them to give $200 (at least) to help support Jeff. If I can get 50 people in their mid-20’s to support Jeff, than we all can. If you support Jeff, please plan to attend a meeting soon on a Saturday or Sunday to learn how you can host an event for Jeff and help us meet our goal by March 31st. Feel free to email me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I expect to hear from you. It’s far too important not to become involved.
