I want to thank you for your support, but I also must tell you immediately what challenges we face.
Our victory Tuesday night was great, and I'm humbled by your confidence. But we still have one last hurdle, and the attacks have already begun.
Nancy Pelosi's team in Washington, D.C., already is at work. The Pelosi team at the Democratic campaign committee issued a press release full of lies and distortions even before all the results were in Tuesday night.
Yes, the Obama-Pelosi spin-machine has fired up right here in the 2nd Congressional District of Oklahoma.
These Chicago-style political bosses also have boots on the ground, desperately digging up dirt. They are even looking into my wife, Christie's, speeding tickets. It's obvious they will do anything to sling mud -- even attack my wife. They've also interviewed my employees, my business associates and on and on.
What will they do next?
I know what I look forward to doing next. I look forward to seeing Nancy Pelosi and telling her: We did build this!
We built our business using our talents, with the sweat of our brow, and with daily dependence on our Creator.
I know you too want to send these liberals a bold message about their socialist agenda.
I'd like to ask you to do so by helping our campaign. We must raise an astronomical amount of money in only 10 short weeks.
Whatever amount you give would be greatly appreciated.
I also need you to forward this message immedately to fellow conservatives by clicking the link at the bottom of this email.
I firmly believe that a sacrificial investment is worth restoring freedom to our great country. It's worth stopping regulations that are killing jobs and destroying our economy. It's worth defending the Constitution, limiting the size and scope of government, and lowering the federal tax burden.
Once again, we could not have made it this far without your help. Thank you for all you've done.
Please don't pull back now. The battle is growing more intense, and we need your help now more than ever.
