Below is an email sent out by Tim Kaine (D) Governor of Virginia asking his supporters to support Andrew Hurst candidate for the VA-11 Congressional seat as we take on Tom Davis.
I want to let you know about an important Congressional race that is critical to our efforts to continue moving Virginia forward.
Andy Hurst, a successful young lawyer and father of three, is the Democratic nominee in Virginia's 11th District. Andy is exactly the kind of person we need working for us in Washington. Andy worked his way through college and law school and is now a nationally-recognized expert on health care law. Recently, he was named the Under-40 Lawyer of the Year for his commitment to community service and pro bono legal work.
During my race in 2005 we saw that Virginia is ready for change. The people of the 11th Congressional District are ready to move in a new direction this year and Andy Hurst is exactly the right candidate to reform Washington.
Will you help Andy change Congress? Contribute to his campaign today.
Recent elections show that Andy's district is Democratic. In 2004, John Kerry lost by just a percentage point. Last year, thanks to your hard work, I won the 11th Congressional District by 13 points -- a 14-point swing in just one year!
There are so many important races this year. But Andy's is particularly important to our efforts to win control of Congress in November.
Will you help Andy get his message to voters in Virginia and build on the success of Governor Warner and myself? Make a contribution of $1000, $500, $250, $100, or $50 today.
People across the Commonwealth are excited about Andy's campaign. He began his grassroots effort in 2005. Andy and his team knocked on doors and phone banked for local candidates like Dave Marsden, Dave Bulova, Bruce Roemmelt, Greg Werkheiser and Earnie Porta.
Andy helped us win some great victories last year. Let's do our part now to help Andy. Please contribute to his campaign today.
Andy's TV ad will be on the air soon. The money he raises now is critical to keeping his message on the air, and winning on November 7. Visit Andy's website today at www.hurstforcongress.com to make a secure on-line donation and learn more about his campaign.
I hope you will join me as we work to change Washington by electing Andy Hurst to Congress.
P.S. Every dollar counts -- especially when multiplied by thousands of other Virginians who are committed to change. Your contribution today will help make the difference for Andy's campaign.
