Huckabee Campaign - Let Us Surprise Them In Iowa

I would like you to do two things for me. First, please email your friends, family members and co-workers and tell them about my campaign and tell them why you are supporting me.

Second, please make an immediate contribution to my campaign. Whether you contribute $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,000 your financial support is much appreciated.

I am asking because we are in need.

For some months now, I have campaigned in the wake of my second place finish at the Ames Straw Poll with the great hope that we would see a surge of support in Iowa and nationally. For weeks that support has been building and now the moment of our hopes is here.

A new Rasmussen poll shows our campaign climbing to 18% in a virtual tie for second place with Fred Thompson who is at 19%. Mitt Romney whose poll numbers in Iowa had peaked around 30% has slipped to within striking distance at 26%. Momentum is on our side.

Help us seize the moment and let us surprise them in Iowa!

Will you help our campaign? Will you give us the financial strength to compete in Iowa and beyond?

Are there 50 people who will contribute the maximum of $2,300 to my campaign today? Are there 1,000 people who will contribute $100 to my campaign today? Are there 5,000 people who will contribute $25 today?

For the DC pundits who have tried to make this a race between Senator Thompson, Senator McCain, Governor Romney and Mayor Giuliani because of the money they have raised, my entry into the top tier is quite a surprise. They doubted our campaign. That's fine.

I never doubted our campaign and I know you haven't either.

Make an immediate contribution today and we will invest your support quickly in states such as Iowa where we are building momentum. We’ve set a goal to raise $200,000 by October 31. In two days we have raised $52,534. Help us close the gap. I will be in Iowa next week campaigning throughout the state and meeting with my supporters.

Help me send a clear sign of our strength to my supporters in Iowa and nationally. Help me show them we are committed to winning.

Make the contribution you can afford today. But please make it. There is no better moment. Help us reach our goal.

With deep gratitude,
Mike Huckabee
