Just wrapping up from an incredible trip to D.C. I had a lot of meetings and it was amazing to see the support growing for our campaign. Congressman Brad Miller was kind enough to hold a breakfast fundraiser for our campaign that was very nice. He and his staff are great and were very kind to us. The entire NC Democratic delegation is a wonderful group of folks. Congressman Rahm Emanuel, Chair of the DCCC, was a surprise special guest and I certainly was pleasantly surprised that he said he had just mailed us a $5,000 check for our efforts!
It's great to see everyone in DC finally coming to realize what we've known in the 8th District all along. We're going to win in November.
And while it was certainly a worthwhile trip, it's nice to be back home in the 8th District. School's out and the campaign is heating up with summer. We're going to be campaigning harder than ever all over the district, with more fundraisers on the immediate horizon.
Let me just tell you about the next one briefly. I hope my friends will join me in Chapel Hill on Wednesday, June 28 at the home of James Protzman and Jane Brown, 451 Lakeshore Lane from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
We have a fundraising reporting deadline of June 30th and this fundraiser will be a big help toward our goal. Your $50 ticket will help our campaign tremendously. It will buy 4 radio ads in Raeford or 217 postcard stamps enabling us to reach out to the voters of this district. My heartfelt thanks to Congressman David Price and our hosts for sponsoring this event. Call 919-932-9359 for details and tickets.
We're well on our way, but we do need everyone's help. I encourage anyone thinking about giving to do so before that June 30th deadline.
Hate to cut this short, but I'm off for a day of meeting voters. See you on the road.
