State Senator White is working his non-campaign or pre-announcement by regular communications with Nebraska Democrats. Here is what he sent out today:
"We’ve had a great response to the email I sent you earlier this week asking for you to help us start strong as I move toward a race for Congress. I’m emailing today with a significant update.
The news just came from D.C. that national Republicans have added Lee Terry to their “Patriot” program – the Republican equivalent of the Endangered Species List. They know Nebraskans aren't happy with the status quo, and that it will take significant resources to defend it.
Show Republican leaders that they’re right to think Lee Terry is among their most vulnerable incumbents by giving at least $10 online right now:www.TomWhite2010.com/contribute
Now that they consider this seat in danger, we need to be ready for increased attention from Republican leaders in Congress. The D.C. newspaper Roll Call reports that Terry and the other most vulnerable incumbents will compete for 10 spots on the next scheduled “Patriot Day” — a one-day fundraising blitz that brought in almost $100,000 in contributions for each of the 10 original program members when it debuted in June.
Washington Republicans will be bringing serious muscle into our district to defend the status quo. It will take a strong grassroots network to fight back."
