the GOP candidates say Sen. Hillary Clinton Sen. Barack Obama


Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are raking in the campaign cash hand-over-fist.\

\ They begin 2008 having raised more than $200 million combined. In the first eight days of this year, Barack Obama’s campaign bragged they had raised over $8 million — and Hillary Clinton’s campaign is right there with him.\

\ Last year, Democrat presidential contenders and Democrat party committees combined raised more than Republicans. Liberal special interests are raising hundreds of millions of dollars from Big Labor, Hollywood elites and radical protest groups like to defeat Republicans in November.\

\ We must close the gap with the Democrats if we are to have the resources available to elect a new Republican President and Congress. Please help the RNC raise the funds we need to counter the Democrats by making a secure online contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, or $25 today.\

\ The Democrats and their liberal special interest allies will spend and say whatever it takes to win total control of the government. They are determined to push our country to the Left.\

\ Whoever the Democrat nominee ultimately is, we already know their vision for the future. Both Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama want to:\

\ * Implement massive tax increases that punish hard-working American families in order to pay for new government bureaucracies.\ * Give government instead of patients and doctors more power and control over health care; and,\ * Retreat from the War on Terror and cut off funding for our men and women in uniform. \

\ We cannot allow a return of the high taxes, big government, weakened national security style of governing that Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama embody.\

\ The RNC must raise the funds now to support our eventual nominee if we are to compete with the Clinton/Obama/liberal special interest money machine. That’s why today I’m turning to our Party’s top supporters once again.\

\ Electing Republicans committed to our principles of lower taxes, a strong national defense and less government begins with you. Please make a secure online contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, or $25 to support the RNC’s efforts today.\

\ Your immediate support is crucial to countering the Democrat money machine and keeping our campaign programs on track. Thank you.\

\ Best Wishes,\

\ Robert M. “Mike” Duncan\ Chairman, Republican National Committee\

\ P.S., Democrats and left-wing special interest groups are raising hundreds of millions of dollars to put a liberal like Senator Clinton or Barack Obama in the White House and expand their majorities in Congress. Please make an urgent online campaign contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, $50, or $25 to the RNC today to keep our Party on the path to nationwide victories. Thank you.\
