New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte — famous for her no vote on gun background checks — tells her supporters she needs their money to fight on. Here’s a portion of a recent email:
With the help of the liberal media, Michael Bloomberg and Barack Obama are doing everything they can to damage me politically for not supporting their agenda. And on top of this…I’m under attack for standing up to Barack Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” our country by defending the timeless principles of limited government and personal responsibility! This is why I urgently need you to help me fight back against the left’s well-funded and well-heeled liberal special interests.
As both a mom and a strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights, I’m eager to combat the escalating gun violence we’re seeing throughout the country. In fact, I supported a bill that would have helped fix our broken background check system, increased prosecutions of criminals, and strengthened our mental health system.
…I’m 100% dedicated to fighting gun violence; after all, I have two young kids at home! But I won’t disarm law-abiding gun owners so Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg can score a political victory at the expense of our Constitutional rights. That’s why I’m asking you to make an emergency contribution to help me fight back.
