Dear Supporter,

Do you know who receives most of his money from unions, votes with Nancy Pelosi 90% of the time and is being bankrolled by Pelosi and her special interest friends?

Tom Perriello.

For the past two years, Tom Perriello, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Washington have been spending our money and driving our country further into debt - a debt which now totals over $13 trillion dollars. Perriello promised that if we spent a few billion dollars and gave him a little bit of time, he would bring jobs back to Virginia's Fifth District and help get our economy moving again.

Hundreds of billions of dollars later, we still don't have jobs. In fact, unemployment is higher now than it was two years ago! My friend, that is why I'm running for Congress.

Tom Perriello is the most vulnerable Democrat in Congress and I know we can defeat him if I have your support. Will you join the fight by following this link and making a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to my campaign?

Tom Perriello has let us down. His voting record doesn't match the values we share, and he's chosen a comfortable seat at the establishment's table over fighting for the citizens of the Fifth District. Is that the kind of Congressman you want?

Congressional Democrats are now threatening to further raise taxes on middle class Virginians and I have no doubt that Tom Perriello will allow this to happen. We know that higher taxes will be devastating to our already fragile economy. It's time to fight back.

We need to stand up for the hardworking people and the struggling small businesses in Southside and Central Virginia. We need a leader who will go to Washington and vote for legislation that does not harm the citizens of the Fifth District. Tom Perriello's record is clear - he is not that leader.

I'm ready to be that leader, but I need you to stand with me. A recent survey has me ahead in this race with 58% of the vote, compared to 35% for Perriello. I can win - but I need your support. Tom Perriello has Washington, DC and national special interest money at his disposal and our campaign needs the resources to take the fight to him this fall. Please follow this link right away and make the most generous contribution you can to support our effort.

Thank you in advance for your support.
Sincerely,

Robert Hurt
PS - Tom Perriello has let us down and it's time to hold him responsible for choosing political power over his constituents.
