The following message is forwarded at the request of LP Georgia’s Chairman on leave, Daniel Adams:
If the Libertarian Party wants to attain its biggest victory since our inception, they’ll donate today. www.votestaples.com/
In 2008, I informed people that we had a race in Georgia that had the potential for an LP candidate to top the one million vote mark running as a Libertarian in a state wide race… to which we were scoffed at and told we’d never come close and at most we could expect only 250k. Well, as some of you know, John Monds topped the predicted vote total with the grand total of 1,076,726 votes, breaking the record for any race ever, including Ed Clark’s 1980 presidential run.
This year, we’re in a similar position in a 2 person race.
Yesterday, we received some informational polling numbers that suggest we’re currently in a dead heat with our Republican incumbent opponent. We can WIN THIS! And even though, as Libertarians, we know how to run very frugal campigns, my biggest fear is we lose due to a lack of funding.
We need your help. I believe with as little as $15k added to the $5k cash we currently have on hand, this office can be ours. Can you imagine what an elected Libertarian in a statewide office will do for our Party?
For the five years I’ve served as chair of the GA LP, I’ve never asked anything from anyone outside our state, including the National Party… I’m asking now. Please do what you can to help.
P.S.Feel free to call 706 207-1645
When I forwarded this from the State Chairs list to the LNC list, Scott Lieberman replied:
Thank you for posting that.
It helps to tell us what this candidate is running for!
I did about 10 minutes of “due diligence”…
Staples is running for the District 5 seat of the Georgia PSC. There will probably be about 2,200,000 votes cast in that district.
If anyone can find a link to a statistically valid poll that really does show Staples in a dead heat with the enfeebled incumbent Stan Wise, please post that link to lnc-discuss.
