The Deadline Approaches: Time to Send a Message with Your Money

We’re two days away from the close of the political fundraising quarter. And maybe you’ve been getting harassed by the same amount of emails and other contacts as I have, urging you to give before the next reports come out.

But I’ll repeat it, too: If you have a clear favorite in one or more of Colorado’s Republican primary races or you just want to tell the NRSC and Washington bigwigs to take a hike, nothing sends a message like a campaign donation.

If you’re like me, you aren’t going to come close to making the max contribution ($1,050 for governor and other statewide races, or $4,800 for U.S. House and U.S. Senate). But if you want to earn the right to complain, you ought to put your money where your mouth is. A multitude of 10 dollar donations can send a powerful message.

I just gave 20 bucks each to Josh Penry and Ryan Frazier. What are you going to do?

    I find it amazing you are still complaining about the ‘endorsement’…….that NEVER happened. Isn’t the liberal media the one that’s supposed to create news stories?

    Thank you for your support for Ryan. I made some calls for his campaign, and am glad to see the support.

    Mr. Tomasek (aka call sign viper),

    Funny you put the word ‘endorsement’ in quotes … wondered whom you were quoting? Wondered if you are trying to deny that Norton is the handpicked candidate of John McCain and John Cornyn?

    I am glad you are fortunate enough to have $4,800 to spend on the Norton campaign, though I’m not convinced you are getting the best return on your investment. But it isn’t surprising either, coming from a McCain Republican like yourself.

    There are many more of us out here waiting to see if Norton has the fire in the belly to carry this thing through — something money can’t substitute for. Or else we might be talking about Senator Pete Coors today….
