Lee’s Summit conservative, and Marine vet, Jacob Turk is gunning for liberal single- payer advocate, Emanuel Cleaver’s Congressional seat. Hopefully he will be able to benefit from the anti-big government mood the country is in right now, and ride to victory in November. But he needs fund-raising support to get his campaign started.
Starting today, and ending Saturday, February 6th, he’s raising funds online for his campaign. You can donate, here.
Third time’s a charm according to Turk on his Facebook page:
Thirty years ago, a college professor from Georgia named Newt Gingrich ran three times before he won a seat in Congress in 1978. In fact, between the two elections in 1974 (the Watergate year) and 1976 (the Jimmy Carter year) the former speaker LOST voter share before he was finally victorious.
Flash forward to 2010: A similar political wind is blowing our way …..with all the makings of an historic victory here in Missouri’s 5th Congressional District.
In 2006, when Republicans lost control the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, I received 32.5% of the vote. Undeterred, I pledged to work harder – and actually increased my vote percentage in 2008 to nearly 36% — in the “Year of Obama.”
Victory is in the air. And I need your help to win in 2010.
There’s an old saying that the third time is the charm – and just like Newt Gingrich three decades ago, I am positioned for a major upset in my race against Democrat Emanuel Cleaver. Cleaver receives failing grade after failing grade for his policies against businesses that create jobs for American workers, including just a 25% rating from the National Association of Manufacturers.
We need “real change” in Congress. But I can’t make it happen without your help.
Americans are questioning – and rejecting the Obama Administration’s
version of “Change.”
I’m so excited by the possibilities of the Senate race in Massachusetts where Scott Brown has scored an historic victory in such a Democratic stronghold! As the people’s choice, Scott Brown has had an amazing impact raising conservative solutions in a state where a Republican has not held the Senate seat in MA in almost six decades.
Add that to the major Republican victories in New Jersey and Virginia and it becomes clear the political winds are changing.
Can I count on your help? With your contribution we can put up the sails and head towards a victory in November:
Your contribution for $550 will pay for the billboard on I-70 for one month;
A $200 contribution will enable us place ads in newspapers across the district;
Or agree to become one of our “1000 for a $100” by writing a check for $100 so we can print palm cards for our door-to-door campaign efforts.
Momentum is building for sweeping gains for conservatism across the country. We must stop the insanity: pork instead of stimulus, taxpayer-funded bailouts for irresponsible business practices and the latest march to government-rationed health-care.
We must change direction to revitalize our economy and create jobs for millions of suffering Americans. We must enact common-sense, conservative solutions to allow businesses to create the jobs you and your neighbors need.
Every liberal, left wing special interest has a seat at the Obama-Cleaver table…but folks like us don’t. I’ll make sure our friends and neighbors have a strong, conservative voice as your new Congressman from the 5th District.
To implement conservative solutions, we need conservatives in Congress who will vote our values. The best ideas are only ideas unless someone has the courage to implement them. It’s a new decade, a new day, a new race. Time to get in the boat, the sail is going up!
I believe in “Jobs Here, Jobs Now.”
Our businesses, especially small businesses, must have incentives to create job…and our government must support free enterprise.
But I can’t do this alone. Please join my campaign and contribute today. You can mail your contribution for $550, $200 or become a member of the “1000 for $100” today to Jacob Turk for Congress, P.O. Box 2097, Lee’s Summit, MO 64063. I would be so grateful for your support.
Missouri’s 5th District
