UPDATE: As of 3:15 PM, they are only
$12,875 $10,975 short of their goal.
So far, our Act Blue fundraising page has 9 contributions totalling $1275.18.
There’s suddenly a lot of buzz coming out of the Linda
Stender for Congress office. She’s having a really great week and her fundraising, which has always been solid, is suddenly justâ€¦taking off. A huge goal is suddenly in reach. And she needs our help.
Incredibly, with just 48 hours left before the filing, Stender is just $15,000 from crossing the March 31 Viability Threshold; that’s the number (and it’s big) set by national organizations like DCCC and Emily’s List to consider you viable for funding on a national level. This is huge; we need 15 seats to Take Back Congress, and one of them could be the first woman in the NJ Congressional Delegation in years.
If you’ve been thinking about giving to Stender, this is the moment. Every dollar you give now is effectively multiplied if Stender’s growing national-profile results in added resouces from national groups pouring into New Jersey to turn the reddish 7th CD bright blue.
Stender needs to raise $15,000 by Friday. Blue Jersey has set up a netroots ActBlue page to track how much the netroots can raise. You can contribute directly through this form:
Stender’s got the stuff: She’s already raised $300,000, more than the 2004 & 2002 Dem candidates combined raised by March 31. And the lady can win an election: She’s been a Mayor, a Freeholder and is now Deputy Speaker in the Assembly. This candidate is worth your bucks.
Help the netroots effort to launch Linda Stender national.
