Fundraising Challenge Update
Wow! With your help we've raised $20,450 online since last week when we challenged our supporters to help us raise $35,000 online by the end of the year. We're only 1 week into our challenge and already more than half way to our goal!
Can you help us get the rest of the way there?
We've been amazed at the response to our challenge. Even if you feel you can't give much, remember that every dollar helps.
Together we're going to put Frank Wolf on the ropes and bring real change to Washington in 2008.
