Your State. Your Party. Stay in touch!

Dear Supporter,

Our journey to reach 1,000 new donors in six months began in January with Candis -- a homemaker from Panama City - and ended with our 1,000th new donor, Anne -- a retired college professor from Lutz.

Thanks to them and the 998 donors that came in between them we met our goal by reaching 1,013 new donors in the first half of 2009. We are well on our way to building a campaign to meet the once in a generation opportunity we have in the next election.

In the 2010 election we will have open races for Governor, a US Senate seat, three cabinet offices, and over 30 legislative races -- and I know we can do it because we are fired up to win and we'll have the grassroots support to do it.

For the first time in over a decade we have raised more money than Republican Party of Florida during the second quarter -- and we did it thanks to you. While they only relied on large checks from just over 200 donors -- we had over 8 times the number of people stand up and invest in our party and over 15 times more people give under $100.

While they are depending on big money to defend the status quo, we are bringing people together to bring change to Florida.

The outpouring of support from grassroots donors like you shows that we are organized and energized to elect proven leaders such as Alex Sink as our next Governor, as well as electing Democrats up and down the ticket.

Thank you so much for joining Candis and Anne to help us reach our goal.
