I don’t know why, but local Democrats seem to be more adept at using the internet than Republicans.
The Republican candidate is Dan Duffy. I haven’t gotten anything from him.
In any event, here is what Democrat Gentes sent out today:
Fundraiser Scheduled– So Save the Date
The life blood of a campaign is its volunteer base, but the second most important thing is money!
Congresswomen Melissa Bean is going to host a fundraiser/reception for me on April 19 from 4pm to 6pm at the Barn of Barrington (1415 S Barrington Rd Barrington, IL 60010).
I have a prestigious host committee as well:
- Senator Terry Link
- Senator Susan Garrett
- Senator Michael Bond
The cost is $75 for an individual, $300 as a sponsor and $500 to be a host. You can donate easily online with this link at ActBlue which is my online donation program.
See you there!
Don’t Forget about my Blog on the Campaign Website where I publish about 2-3 articles a week, for your enjoyment!
Help me afford to go the Distance
Last month, I won the Democratic Primary for the 26th Senate District in a landslide! I carried 92% of the precincts by hard work, lots and lots of phone calls and knocking on doors to meet voters.
This fall, I am facing a wealthy Republican who has never held elective office and is trying to buy a seat in the Illinois Senate. I will outwork him, but to be as effective as possible, I need to match him dollar-for-dollar. I have raised a good deal already, but need to raise about a million dollars to become the next State Senator from this area.
