Help Raul who has helped us!

A message from Mona Grijalva about the CD 7 election.

Dear Friends,
With only 23 days left to go before election day, there is a true sense of urgency and NOW is the time to really get busy!! The right wing sees Raul as vulnerable and is working really hard to win the race in CD7....and they have ALOT of money. They already have horrible, biggoted anti-Raul commercials on TV! They have already mailed anti-Raul flyers to thousands of homes in CD7! They had folks waving anti-Raul signs at moving traffic while screaming racist epithets in several areas of town last week!! As the attached article from states, we are in a really, really tough race this year!!  
So...we really need your help to get out the vote!! We know if our folks vote, Raul will win and continue to represent us. We haven't had to work this hard since the first time he ran for Congress, so we have to do it with the same enthusiasm and drive we had in 2002! We need walkers to canvass and folks to make phone calls!! We also need money to pay for TV and radio air time. Adelita is also having to fight for the TUSD School Board seat she's done a great job at for 8 years because her last name is Grijalva, so she needs help too! 
ANYTHING you can do would be great!! Please call the Headquarters at 520-629-0050 and speak to Brissia Perez or Pat Burns to volunteer. We have lots of yard signs you can pick up and take with you! If you can't come into the Headquarters, we can get a list to you so you can make calls from home or we can deliver a sign to you. If you'd like to donate to the campaign, please go to where you can make your donation online. Early voting has begun and folks are voting NOW, so we can't wait until closer to election day to do something. NOW is the time for us to moblilize!!
Thanks so much, Mona~
PS. Please forward this to your lists of folks who would like to keep a progressive voice representing us in CD7!! Also, please forgive any cross-postings or duplications of this email and if you would like to be removed from this list, just let me know. I do not share this list with anyone, it is my own personal list. Gracias...
