I want to thank you for your support of our efforts to end the war, to create a not for profit healthcare system and take America in a new direction, so that we can have a government we can truly call our own

In connection with that, as you know, I'm running for re-election to the United States Congress

And I need your help to make sure that I stay in Congress

Right now I'm under attack by corporate interests, most of them from the city of Cleveland, who have an agenda, that has nothing to do with the people of my community nor with most people in this country

And so, what I'm asking you to do, to help me stay in Congress, so that I can continue to represent the people of my community, the state of Ohio and the United States of America

I need you, right now, to go to that place on the website, where you can contribute

To send a check or to phone in a contribution

I need you to contribute at least $100 to make sure that I can continue my work in the United States Congress

And if you can, to help me raise, with the help of your friends and relatives $1000

If you can help us with this fundraising effort I'll be assured of a victory in the primary election which is only six weeks away

Already television commercials are flooding the Cleveland airwaves with a message that is designed to try to knock me out of office

I've served with honor and dignity in the United States House of Representatives

I've led the effort against the war and for peace and for fair trade and for a not for profit healthcare system

And now I need you to make sure that I can continue this work

Please contribute now

Help us now

I cannot stress strongly enough, the importance of you responding immediately

We need to go on TV immediately to answer the kind of attacks that are occurring

I want to thank you for the great support you've shown me over the years

But I can tell you that now more than ever your support is going to be essential so that I can continue my work in the United States Congress

So please give at least $100 dollars if you're able to, help me raise at least $1000, if you're able to

Enable me to continue to stand up and speak out for the people of Cleveland whose concerns are so much similar to the concerns of people all over this country

I appreciate the opportunity to be someone who you rely on in Congress

Help me continue to do just that

Thank you.
