We need to back up our support for Rick with our $$$! Please help get this word out.

Barbara Radnofsky was an excellent candidate, and she got into the race early and worked her tail off for almost 2 years raising campaing funds. She raised just short of $1.5 million. Barbara's campaign finance link.

This is MORE THAN TEN TIMES GREATER than what Rick raised in his last election. Rick's campaign finance link.

Cornyn says he's going to have $20 million, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee estimates that a competative Democratic campaign will need at least $15 million to avoid being buried by Cornyn's money. Cornyn's fund raising plan link. This $15 million threshold is how much we will need to get national Democratic Party attention focused on our race for Senate.

Even though Rick hasn't announced yet and hasn't done the paperwork to raise funds, you can raise funds for him now by contributing to Texas Netroots Against Cornyn.

Please contribute generously and please help get the word out that we need your votes and your financial support!
