Progressive Patriots Fund: Support Leonard Boswell

I am writing you today to express my strong support of one of our greatest Democrats in the House of Representatives, Congressman Leonard Boswell.

Recently, I spent time in Iowa with the congressman. Over the course of the weekend, I learned how special a man Leonard Boswell is. He's a decorated veteran, an intelligence expert, a farmer, a family man and a strong Democratic leader.

I also learned about how hard Republicans in Washington, D.C., are trying to discredit his good name. Leonard remains the only Democrat from Iowa in the U.S. House of Representatives. And as you can imagine, Karl Rove and his Republican attack machine are committed to ending Leonard's career this November. The National Republicans have targeted Leonard as their #1 priority this year. They will be coming at him with everything they have.

We must stand up now and do all we can to help Leonard today!

Already, several national Republicans have campaigned against Leonard. Recently the Republicans boasted of having raised $744,000 to fund their vicious attacks on Leonard!

Please take a moment today and send a contribution of $75, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford to our campaign to stand up for good Democrats!

Very soon we can expect to see a smear attack on our very distinguished, very courageous friend. They will misrepresent his record, attempt to tarnish his career, and throw as many far-fetched accusations at him as possible. We cannot let them get away with it!

The stakes are far too high for us to sit back and let them roll back the achievements we have fought so long and hard for. Working to make the highest quality education and health care available and affordable to all, standing up for a woman's right to choose, and fighting for the highest clean water and air standards possible. All of these are at risk if we let them have their way. We need Leonard in Congress to continue to stand up for the things we believe in!

Your support today will show that we are willing to stand up to Republican attacks. Leonard has spent his entire life serving his community, state, and our nation. It is time for us to stand with him today and do everything we can to keep him fighting for us, for our children and for our country.

Thank you very much, please do all you can.
