I just got an email from the Feingold campaign:
Johnson’s support is slipping rapidly. His once commanding lead has dropped down to a statistical tie with Russ. Despite the millions in slash-and-burn ads special interests are dumping into Wisconsin media markets, Wisconsin voters aren’t having any of it. In fact, Johnson’s Washington, D.C. corporate special interest strategy has backfired – Johnson’s negatives are way up – more than 10 points in just the past week alone.
Johnson’s desperation means only one thing – a massive wave of attack ads targeting Russ. Even as I write this to you, I fully expect that Johnson and his corporate special interest cronies are plotting out their final wave of attacks. […]
Russ’s campaign is capitalizing on this shift in public opinion. We’re working with supporters like you to expand our grassroots operation throughout Wisconsin. Television and radio ads only go so far in an election; it’s our grassroots ground game that’s going to get the win for Russ on November 2.
Let’s dig deep and pitch in some more. I know there are a lot of other pleas for money going around out there — but this is our guy, we need to stand by him. Thanks to all who’ve given so far — now can you give a little more? And if you haven’t, please give now — it doesn’t have to be $100, $5 and $10 is fine too.
Above all, start spreading this URL — http://actblue.com/page/gfr4russ — to the people on your email lists, to your Facebook friends, to your Twitter followers. Let them know Russ is in a tight race, but it’s one he can win — with their help. And with yours. Thanks!
