A New Challenge - $200,000 by Halloween!

The following was sent out tonight by Mike Huckabee.

A new Rasmussen poll now shows our campaign rising to 8% nationally. More evidence of a surge in support.

For weeks we have seen a surge in website traffic and now we are seeing rising poll numbers nationally and also in key states.

What is so encouraging about our 8%, is that in spite of having only spent $1.6 million since February we are only 1% point behind Senator John McCain and 5% points behind Governor Mitt Romney (Governor Romney has spent a staggering $52.8 million! so far).

Well today, I am emailing you to say that with your support we can do better than Governor Romney's 13%. In fact, we can win Iowa and take the momentum we would gain from a win in Iowa and go on to surprise folks in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

The key to growing our 8% into 13%, and then building our campaign into a winning margin of votes in the early states is your making the decision to financially support our campaign.

That is why I am asking you to make an immediate online contribution today. It is clear to me that if you stand with us we will succeed. We will be able to invest in advertising and voter outreach to boost our level of support nationally.

We have targeted raising an additional $200,000 online by October 31. A challenge for our campaign for sure. Reaching this goal however, will put us at well over $400,000 raised online in October. Your contribution of $1 (A buck for Huck), $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or even $2,300 will help us reach our goal.

Will you help us?

If everyone that has already contributed to my campaign matches their last online contribution we will easily reach our goal. It's unrealistic to expect that kind of a result though. Those that can afford to make a second or even a third or fourth contribution to the campaign, I hope you will do so again. If you cannot at this time, I understand. We will rely on others to stand in for you.

If you haven't made a contribution yet, what are you waiting for?

Let me be clear, if you don't make a contribution we will fail to reach this end of October goal and even though we have led all Republicans in new ideas, we will eventually fail as a campaign because of a lack of money. That's a hard thing to swallow when so much is at stake for our country.

With the limited resources we have, we have learned to invest each dollar as if it were our last. We will invest your financial support over these final weeks in the same way.

Your contribution of $1 (A buck for Huck), $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or even $2,300 will not only help us reach our goal but will be invested in voter outreach, printed campaign materials and online, radio and television advertising.

Support our campaign today.

With deep gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

So there we have it gang! Can we raise $200,000 by Midnight on Halloween? I think we can! So what are you waiting for....LET'S GO!!
