The following video was sent out in an email to supporters, along with a fundraising message that appears below:
We are so close to the debates, we can feel it.
The latest poll puts LeAlan Jones at 9%. He needs 10% to get into the ABC 7 debate and blow this whole race wide open.
Can you help LeAlan make it to 10%? All it takes is 1%.
There are dozens of voters who want to put up LeAlan lawn signs, but we need $600 to print the first batch.
There are hundreds of young people who can distribute LeAlan’s literature, but we need $500 to pay for the paper and ink.
There are thousands of people across Illinois who want to meet LeAlan and learn more about him, but we need $400 to pay for train tickets.
All of their efforts can get us over 10%.
Your contribution of $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 will play an important role in getting LeAlan into the debates. We believe if he’s in the debates, his plan to create green jobs and end corporate greed will connect with voters.
We are also looking for volunteers with media and outreach experience who can help us the final six weeks of this campaign.
