Slaughter Starts Fundraising Against Brooks, Ties Her To “Washington Republicans”

1

Rep. Louise Slaughter started quickly today ramping up her re-election bid and raising money, putting out a fundraising plea to get 1,000 donors in 48 hours.

In the email to supporters, the Democratic congresswoman attacks her Republican opponent, Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks.

“Republican Maggie Brooks has made it clear – that she won’t stand up for what counts in Western New York instead she’ll be more of the same refusing to break ties from the same Washington Republicans who have tried to shut down the government, trample on women’s rights and end Medicare as we know it,” Slaughter alleges.

Slaughter goes into the race with $362,753 on hand. Brooks had $47,680 in her state account, but she can’t use it for a federal run.

Here’s Slaughter’s fundraising email.

I am writing to you to ask a quick favor. You have always stood by me as we have fought to stop insider trading in Congress, protect women’s rights and grow our economy here in Western New York. When we fight together, we win. That’s why today I need your urgent help.

This morning a Republican announced she has entered the race for my congressional seat and all eyes are on our new district.

That means we have just 48 hours to demonstrate overwhelming support. The media, pundits and my opponent are watching us to see our response. We have set an aggressive goal of 1000 donors in the next 48 hours. Will you stand with me?

Contribute today to stand with me to help us reach our goal in the next 48 hours

Republican Maggie Brooks has made it clear – that she won’t stand up for what counts in Western New York instead she’ll be more of the same refusing to break ties from the same Washington Republicans who have tried to shut down the government, trample on women’s rights and end Medicare as we know it.

You know I will never stop fighting for you and I hope I can count on you today to join our fight. We have the next 48 hours to show that we have the overwhelming momentum and support going into November. Please give a gift today.

A gift today will go a long way for our campaign to ensure everyone knows we have what it takes to win in November.

Thank you so much for your unwavering support.

Best, Louise

P.S. This means so much to me, please give a gift today before our deadline or you can always call Katie at headquarters. Thanks again.

Yours truly,

Louise

  1. Whats wrong with the “Washington Republicans” they want to control spending, lower the National debt, and repeal Obama Care.

    The “Washington Democ”RATS” want to raise taxes, and spent money we do not have.
