“Shadowy Right-Wing Group” Buys $900,000 to Attack Gerry Connolly


    I just received an appeal from Gerry Connolly that begins, “Shortly after this email was sent from Joe Biden my campaign manager informed me that American Action Network — one of the shadowy right-wing groups empowered by the Citizens United decision — has purchased $900,000 in negative TV ads attacking me.” Here’s the email from Joe Biden; I encourage everyone to fight back against this “shadowy right-wing group”, stop them from stealing our Democracy, and prevent Keith Fimian from taking his extremist views to Congress.  Thanks.

    Being a target of the GOP and their attacks proves how effective he has been in helping President Obama and me move our country forward.

    President Obama and I need Representative Gerry Connolly in Congress more than ever. He has been a great partner in the fight to create jobs here in America and give every one of our citizens a fair shot at the American dream.

    Your gift will help him afford television and radio ads and other means to set the record straight and put out our positive message. Even a gift of just $5 could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

    Contribute $5, $10 or more before Midnight Tomorrow so that Gerry Connolly will have the rapid response funds he needs before the deadline for next week’s ad buys.

    Representative Gerry Connolly needs our help in these final critical days before Election Day. Every dollar you give will help him fight back.

    Thank you.

    Joe Biden
