Just received an email from the Cal Cunningham campaign. This is a personal note from Cal's wife:
I've been married to Cal for nine years, and I know he's in this race for all the right reasons.
About 9.4 million of them, in fact, because he's in this race to fight for each and every North Carolinian. He's in it to take on the powerful interests that obstruct progress. He's in it to bring people together and build a stronger, more prosperous future for our state.
Simply put, Cal's in this race to take your voice to Washington and to stand up for your values.
So let your voice be heard, and share your priorities for North Carolina's future.
In the coming weeks, Cal will detail specific plans and proposals to create jobs, promote innovation, reform trade, strengthen our schools, restore sanity to the federal budget, invest in the green economy, and put America back to work.
These detailed plans will reflect the ideas, concerns, and aspirations of the North Carolinians he's met while growing up and living in our state and while listening carefully during this campaign.
But before Cal starts rolling out proposals, he wants to hear about what's on your mind too -- to make sure that he is speaking for you. After all, this campaign will only succeed -- and Cal's work in Washington will only matter -- if it tackles the real issues North Carolina families face every day.
Please share your thoughts today, so that Cal can take your voice to Washington.
I couldn't be prouder of Cal's record as a fighter for the people and causes he believes in. In the State Senate, he fought for strong schools, clean air, job training, and government reform. In Iraq, he fought contractor crimes and fraud that harmed the mission and wasted taxpayer funds.
Now he's ready to fight just as hard for North Carolina families in our nation's capital. That means he needs to hear from you.
Thank you so much for giving your input.
P.S. As Cal details his plans for North Carolina's future over the coming weeks, he needs to hear from as many voters as possible. So once you've shared your priorities, please forward this email to your friends and family!
