Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator and Presidential Candidate, Cory Booker (D. NJ), in support of Jaime Harrison’s (D. SC) U.S. Senate campaign:
Team, I’m grateful to be here today in South Carolina alongside my good friend, Jaime Harrison.
I’m not sure if you know this, but Jaime and I go way back. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve both come a long way since we first became friends at Yale many years ago. Now, I’m running for president and Jaime is running to become a U.S. senator.
Here’s why I’m writing to you. As you may have heard, I need to raise $1.7 million by tomorrow, September 30th at 11:59 p.m. Otherwise, I won’t have enough resources to build a winning campaign. If we don’t hit this goal, I intend to leave the race.
Jaime and I both have some big challenges before us. I have to hit this huge fundraising goal by tomorrow night. Jaime has to defeat Lindsey Graham in what is sure to be a very expensive Senate race. If either of us is to be successful, we’re both going to need people like you to step up when we need it most.
I hope you’ll consider making a donation to our campaigns today to make sure we both have the resources to compete.
