Alan Grayson runs for the Senate


US House Rep Alan Grayson is running for a seat in the US Senate:

I announced today that I'm running for the Senate.If you read these e-mails, then there's a good chance that you and I think alike. We are kindred spirits. We see things the same way.

So in a way, it's sort of like you're running for the Senate. I'm just doing it for you.

Think about it. You and I have a lot of shared beliefs, a lot of shared values. You and I see what needs to be done, and how to do it. If I make it to the Senate, there's a good chance that I'll do that job just as you would.

And one thing is for sure: You deserve your support. As the Jewish scholar Hillel asked, "If I will not be for myself, who will be for me?"

The same goes for me: I deserve your support. Because if I'm elected, then I will do that job the way you would. I will be a champion for justice, equality, compassion and peace.

I think that you should support your candidacy with a modest contribution. You can join thousands and thousands of others who contribute $20.16 each month. Or a lump sum of $20, $50, $100 or $500. Every dollar counts, because every person counts.

Let's be realistic. You may not make it to the Senate next year. But there is a great chance that I will - if you help. And that's almost as good, isn't it?

I need your help, today, so that I can be a Senator that you will be proud of. Just as if you had the job.
