We’re nearly at the end of an FEC fundraising quarter, so there’s a good chance your e-mailbox is filling up with fundraising requests, with each campaign announcing they’re oh-so-close to their goal and how they need a donation from you right now to put them over the top.
Most of these requests all look the same, but Bobby Jindal’s newly-announced campaign called in one of their celebrity endorsers, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson:
Last week, my friend Bobby Jindal announced his campaign for President. I’m excited he is running. Bobby has my vote.
Bobby hasn’t even been in the race a week, but today’s already the first fundraising deadline for his campaign.
I first met Bobby before he was Governor. He spoke at our church, and just preached. My family was so impressed, and we have been a fan of his ever since.
I know the values Bobby has. He is a good man. An honest man. A Godly man. And I’m proud to call him a friend.
That’s why I’m asking everyone to help my friend Bobby and chip in $100, $50, even $25 before this important fundraising deadline.
We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world. We need Bobby’s leadership to help fix the mess in Washington. I’m the kind of guy who really likes smart people – and Bobby’s one of the smartest people I’ve ever met in my life.
Can I count on you to help my friend Bobby?
