We have to tackle the big issues in this country. My whole career, I’ve been fighting to get us off foreign oil, create new green jobs and industries, and secure health care for every American. Senator Gillibrand understands that solving all of these challenges is essential to turning our economy around. That’s why I’m supporting her reelection to the Senate seat once held by my father.We have to make sure every voter knows what you and I already do: Kirsten has the intelligence, courage, and experience to stand up to corporate special interests and represent all New Yorkers on the issues that matter most. Getting Kirsten’s message out will be hard. This is a big state and campaigns here are expensive. That’s why she needs your help right now, to meet her April fundraising goal, so that this campaign can stay on track for victory.If we make a strong showing in the days between today and April 30, it will only serve to make any Republican challengers think twice about entering this race. Click here to make an immediate contribution from $48 to $4,800 by April 30th. Kirsten Gillibrand believes strongly in progressive values, and I’m committed to helping her meet her April fundraising goal.We need someone who will support President Barack Obama in these times of national and global peril. We need someone who will help the President get the economy back on track and won’t ignore the environmental crisis our planet is facing. Kirsten has always been an environmental champion. She has long been a leading supporter of producing renewable energy and creating “green jobs” to service the industry. If we’re going to finally get serious about climate change and about rebuilding this country, we need Kirsten to keep her spot on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.Moreover, she holds strong Democratic values. She’s always been 100% pro-choice. The ACLU has awarded her a 100% legislative rating. She’s even come out in favor of marriage equality for same-sex couples – because it was the right thing to do.Kirsten is a strong progressive voice in the Senate, and now she needs your help before midnight on Thursday to meet her April fundraising goal. She’s already traveling the state and connecting with voters. Your immediate support right now can give her everything she needs to keep right on going until Election Day. Please make a contribution by midnight on Thursday.Click here to make an immediate contribution from $48 to $4800 by April 30th. Kirsten Gillibrand believes strongly in progressive values, and I’m committed to helping her meet her April fundraising goal.I know that times are tough for everyone. That is why we need a tough, strong leader in Washington to make sure New York stays at the forefront of our national recovery and reconstruction. Kirsten Gillibrand is that leader. I urge you to join me in supporting her.
Sincerely,Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
