Byrd e-mail raises $634,000 in 24 hours
As it turns out, you don't need to be an upstart political insurgent to raise money over the net. You just need a little help from some friends...
According to the Charleston Gazette, an email sent by MoveOn.org and authored by Senator Barack Obama raised over $634,000 in 24 hours for Senator Robert Byrd. Average donation: 42 bucks.
In his MoveOn appeal, Obama also said, “Byrd has spoken out passionately against a Bush foreign policy that has alienated our allies throughout the world. Today, he is fighting an attempt by Republicans to ram federal judges through the Senate.”
Obama closed his Tuesday letter by stating, “A Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate would mean a real change in the priorities of Washington, but more importantly, it would provide significant change for everyday people across America.
