A friend passed this on to me, and I think it highlights some positive press Mr. Romney got over the weekend.
Dear Friend, Congratulations!
As one of the early Team Mitt supporters, you are in good company. Team Mitt's growth has been astounding.
The more voters get to know Mitt Romney, the more energized they get about his candidacy. Just last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), one of the largest gatherings of conservative Republicans nationwide, Mitt spoke to a packed crowd, receiving a standing ovation. He went on to win the event's Straw poll, beating out Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Senator John McCain, and to receive accolades from the pundits and prognosticators across the country.
Where Mitt goes, new supporters follow, but he needs your help to keep building the momentum. On March 31st, just a few short weeks away, the candidates will be judged in an invisible primary, based on amount of contributions.
Will you help Mitt show the media and the country that he has what it takes to win? Please contribute $1,000, $500, $250, $100, or even $50 or $25 today. Don’t wait!After Mitt Romney’s CPAC speech, the LA Times’ Molly Hennessy-Fiske reported:
"Some who arrived at the conference undecided left with Romney campaign signs, including Margo Saule, 65, a horse breeder from Charlottesville, VA. Saule called Romney's speech 'straightforward,' saying 'I liked his convictions.'"
And the New York Times' Adam Nagourney reported:
"...Mr. Romney arrived to a much more subdued reception but left to a rousing roar of applause."
Mitt is changing minds and hearts, and he needs to have all the resources necessary to take his optimistic, pragmatic message straight to voters. Do you want to help?Then, there are two things you can do today: 1) Forward this message to everyone you know, asking them to join Team Mitt; and 2) Contribute whatever amount you can today to help Mitt make a big splash in the invisible primary – the fundraising deadline of March 31st. There are new signs every day that Mitt has the momentum. A recent poll of some of the Republican Party’s most politically active – the Republican National Committee’s members – showed a majority favor Mitt Romney for the Party’s nomination. Now, Mitt is counting on you to help him reach as many voters as possible with his message of strong, new leadership.
