Yesterday, in what's likely the last chance this year to overturn the Citizens United decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Montana's attempt to limit corporate spending in their state's elections.
In other words, the floodgates on unlimited political donations by corporations are wide open and locked firmly in place.
Let there be no doubt: The false attacks against my record -- bankrolled by corporations, anonymous donors with deep pockets and a whole host of special interests -- will only intensify.
But, there is something you can do right now to help me fight back.
I think you and I know which side is going to benefit most from yesterday's decision.
The Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson just dropped $2 million into this race because these folks want to buy a Senate seat for their extreme right-wing pals. America can't afford to let that happen.
We've raised $31,000 toward our end-of-quarter goal, which is great progress. But we must hit our $100,000 target by midnight Saturday, not necessarily to compete with our opponents dollar-for-dollar, but to at least stay within striking distance -- before we close the books on this quarter.
Thanks for all your help. I couldn't do it without you.
