Much as I enjoy talking to voters at their doors every day, in order to run a competitive campaign today we also need to raise a significant amount of money.
MY commitment is to raise as much of that money as possible from people here at home, people who I know and who know me.
My campaign is committed to engaging voters on the real issues and the real choices in this election.
With all the special interest money that is expected to flow into this election, we will need to work hard to get our campaign’s message heard.
And that means I need help from you.
If you’re willing to join the many supporters who’ve donated to my campaign – thank you! I will do my best to continue to earn your trust and support.
I could not do this without you!

Several weeks ago I launched my campaign for the recall election to the Wisconsin 14th Senate District. We made the announcement in a former classroom full of supporters at the Baraboo Civic Center.
I’m proud of my supporters and I’m honored by the hundreds of people who’ve contacted me since then to offer their support.
I’m asking for your time and energy to help spread our powerful message at doorsteps throughout the 14th Senate district.
I put a great deal of thought into making this decision. I like my current job in the Assembly just fine, and prior to this spring it never occurred to me for a second to run for the Senate.
But when hundreds of thousands of citizens travel to the Capitol and almost every other small town in Wisconsin to make their voice heard, someone has got to listen.
Over 850 volunteers worked seven days a week in one of the worst springs in memory, collecting over 23,000 signatures from voters in the 14th Senate District. All of them asked to recall Luther Olsen and I believe they deserve to have a voice.
Will you help us phone bank and go door to door to ensure that every voter has a voice? Help me accomplish this by signing up for a volunteer shift today.
There was a clash of cultures in the State Assembly yesterday as Republican lawmakers passed a major rewrite to Wisconsin’s mining laws. The vote came over the objections of Native Americans who say it would hurt land that’s sacred to them. (Ashland Current 1/27/2012)
