Bil wrote yesterday about a generous Bilerico reader will match up to $1000 total raised on Bilerico if at least 12 people donate to the Protect Maine Equality campaign before noon tomorrow. So far we have enough donors, but we're still $120 short of getting the full matching donation!
Shortly after Bil's post went up Jesse Connolly sent this urgent message:
There's good news and not-so-good news. The good news is that our terrific new campaign ad is on the air statewide.
The not-so-good? Our opponents shot their first TV ads last weekend and are planning a huge rally with national anti-equality spokespeople like Tony Perkins of Focus on the Family this weekend.
The clock is ticking. There are only 56 days until Election Day. This is the most critical stretch of the campaign. And we need your help to raise $41,446 by Friday to keep our ads running throughout the state.
