Since my announcement to run for office nearly a year ago in November, I have learned that I am up against a big blue machine. That machine is the single party government controlling our state through campaigns funded by big unions and special interest groups. These groups and their allies in the Capitol are responsible for the damage done to our state over the last 30 years. And they are out in force supporting my opponent.
The frustration with this one party rule has motivated many grass roots efforts. I believe this is evidence that the people have decided we are no longer going to allow these interests to take away our freedoms and our jobs. This is where I need your help.
So far, we have raised $149,581 from more than 170 donors. That is pretty impressive and I am so incredibly grateful and proud. But let me put this in context; Kate Brown raised $300,000 from just 2 donors. While this may leave you feeling as if this is just too big of a mountain to climb, then let me challenge that thought. We can conquer that mountain – our campaign has a lot of momentum. We have worked very hard and are poised to finish strong. Together our team has:
– Walked door-to-door and have reached just over 8,800 doors
– Attended 179 meetings, tours and events in district and around the region
– Placed over 395 yard signs and 19 field signs up in the district with more going up daily
– Welcome people nearly every day at campaign headquarters to pick up signs and sometimes leave a donation
I haven’t done any of this alone. I can’t, but I know that it is possible to win this seat from the big blue machine with your help.
Please act now, not tomorrow or next week. Do not put it off, that is how they beat us! They know we will get busy with our families and our jobs, serving in our community and they will slowly take the lead while we are busy working.
Get out your checkbook and become part of the revolution of “We Want Our State Back.” I need funds to finish the race strong. Please consider sending support in the amount of $100, $250, $500, $1000, or whatever you can afford. It is even easier to contribute by clicking on that big red donate button on the top right of this page!
Thank you for your support and if you have any questions or need a yard or field sign, or if you would like to volunteer and be a part of our great team, please reach out and we will connect you!
Keeping the faith,
Laura S. Morett
