Look below for the rest of his pitch:
Our campaign for a New Day in Colorado is at a critical juncture. With just a week left in the fundraising quarter, we need your help to raise another $23,000 to reach our end of the quarter fundraising goal and bring real reform to Colorado -- to get our state headed back in the right direction.
A recent online survey showed that I have a 17 point lead in the race to represent the Republican Party against Bill Ritter. Yet again, a sampling of the most in tune and politically astute show we're leading the way.
Our message of prudent, more effective government taking less taxes, allowing more freedom, and an economy where moms and dads are back at work continues to build momentum.
But we need help from you to get our message out in the coming months. The opposition is busy defending failed policies and failed leadership. Colorado is ready for new leadership on the issues that affect us every day.
With over 25,000 miles on the campaign car, I'm spending a lot of time traveling this state and talking to families about our vision to get this economy back on its feet. We need to expand energy production of all forms, rein in spending and balance budgets without asking for big new taxes every time the people of Colorado turn around.
Colorado deserves real leadership in the governor's office. We need fresh ideas and innovative solutions to the problems families and small businesses face every single day.
The candidate who will beat Bill Ritter will be the candidate who can present the most compelling vision of where to take our state in the future...
I am excited about our opportunity to, together, move Colorado forward and get our state back on track, but I need your help. We need to raise $23,000 in the next week to reach our fundraising goal before this critical deadline. By contributing $1,050, $250, $100, or $25 today, you can help us bring a New Day to Colorado and get our state headed back in the right direction.
P.S. -- Please donate today to help us meet our goal of $23,000 by the September 30th filing deadline for the fundraising quarter. This early display of support will be critical in bringing reform to Colorado and real leadership to the Governor's office.
