Contribute Now to Third Quarter StartChange PAC Matching Day

by StartChange PAC


The battle for control of Congress is coming down to a few critical races. We have chosen five Democratic candidates to support today and we need your help. Our research has found that these are five of the closest and most critical races to take control of the House and put a stop to the Bush agenda.

Right now is a critical moment: there are 40 days to the election and we are 36 hours away from the September 30 filing deadline. Money given today will not only help candidates fund advertising and field campaigns, it will also show the media and the Republicans how committed we are to victory.

With the help of a major donor and StartChange supporter: we match every dollar you gave in the next 36 hours up to $2000 for each candidate. That’s a $10,000 match. Please contribute before midnight on September 30!

UPDATE (10/05 2:45pm): Congratulations! We've exceeded our match goals and together we've raised more than $27,000 for these candidates! If you haven't contributed yet, please do so today. Thank you!!
