Shameless Fundraising Plug

In Activism, Chris Bennett, Libertarian Party-US on October 31, 2007 at 11:05 pm

It’s been almost a month since I announced my candidacy for the Libertarian Party VP Nomination. I have gotten a lot of good feedback from friends, family and libertarians I have known for years. My candidacy has been featured on the front page of the State Journal-Register, which is the oldest and third largest newspaper in Illinois. Now here’s the rough part; In order to keep my “success” going, I need funds, that’s right, MONEY! I know many of you have contributed to “Dr. No”, who is running for the Republican Party Presidential Nomination, but if you have a few dollars to spare, not only would I encourage you to contribute to my campaign but to other Libertarians running for office this year. Arin Sime and Tim Maguire are running classic campaigns and they need as much as your support as possible.

As for me, my plans are to go to Wisconsin, Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and California state conventions. I want to create a decent campaign bi-fold to hand out at these conventions and have them available on-line for supporters to download so they can hand them out at conventions I am not able to attend. My goal for November is modest:500 dollars. So if you agree with me and want an active VP candidate in 2008, you know what you gotta do-throw me a little change for the campaign.
