Please Support Senator Leahy
Monday, April 05, 2004 5:39 PM
Two years ago, I got into the race for President to change the Democratic Party, and to change our country.
With thousands of Americans like you, we stood up to President Bush on issues that mattered - against the war, against the reckless tax cuts, and against a culture of catering to special interests at the expense of our environment and our children.
While my candidacy is over, I am asking your help again - to support others who have had the courage to stand up to George W. Bush and the Republican Party.
Patrick Leahy needs our support.
As a United States Senator from Vermont, Pat Leahy was one of only 23 Senators who voted against the Bush plan for unilateral war against Iraq.
As the senior Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Pat Leahy has led the fight against the efforts of President Bush to pack the courts with right-wing judges and Attorney General John Ashcroft to erode our civil liberties.
And Pat Leahy has worked tirelessly to protect the environment against the polluters and special interests.
The Republican Party is ready to do whatever it takes to defeat Pat Leahy and silence his voice in the United States Senate.
Courage means standing up when it's not popular.
It means standing up for what's right - even when the polls and the pundits say otherwise.
For two years, thousands of Americans like you stood with me.
Now I ask you to stand with Pat Leahy. Your $50 or $100 or $250 contribution will make sure that his independent voice continues to be heard in the U.S. Senate.
Please join me in supporting Pat Leahy. As a candidate who does not accept PAC money, Pat is relying on the support of thousands of individuals like you.
Thank you for everything you do.
Governor Howard Dean, M.D.
P.S. Please forward this email on to everyone you know.
