Blackburn fundraising appeal cites ‘statistical tie’ in Senate race

A fundraising appeal from Republican Marsha Blackburn’s campaign calls the Senate race with Democrat Phil Bredesen a “dead heat” and says she needs to raise the (oddly specific) amount of $22,876 per day through the last 10 days of the month to prevail.

Here’s a copy of the email from Kevin Golden, Blackburn’s campaign manager (note that the link doesn’t bring up any further information, but it does give a link to make contributions) :

Re: 15-Day Strategy


We are now 15 days out from Election Day and 4 days into Early Voting.

As you know, many of the polls coming out have demonstrated a dead heat—a statistical tie—and we are in need of a new strategy to put us over the edge.

Based on the trends we’ve been observing, we need to hit our target audiences harder, so we’re going to push more digital ads and have mapped out a new plan for TV ads. We’re going to need more resources, so we crunched the numbers – huge shout out to the finance team for getting that done.

The bottom line: We’re going to need to raise $22,876 a day through the end of this month in order to finance our new strategy.

We need all hands on deck for this effort, so we’re asking you to reach out to your grassroots networks, families, friends and anyone you know of who is willing to help us out. Marsha has authorized 4X matching for this effort, so get after it! Here’s the link to donate:

The Chuck Schumer-led Democrats are pulling out all the stops to prop up Phil Bredesen. We know that the D.C. and New York and California Democrats have been sending their checks to Phil since day 1 of his campaign. Tennesseans deserve a Senator who represents their values, not those of the war chest operators.

Here’s the link again:

I know we can do this. There’s 15 days left.

        It falls under the header….know the enemy. Having Sean Hannity tell you what the dems are up to is putting a middle man in there I don’t feel is up to the task. So I make the effort myself.

      Not from me I’m sorry to say insofar as I have already contributed rather heavily to her campaign. No doubt from some other patriotic American who loves this country who doesn’t want to see the U.S. Senate fall into the hands of Chuck Schumer and his rogues gallery of left-win kooks

    I am set up monthly to donate to her campaign since she declared for the race. Not a lot per month but it helps, I am sure. As MarLE knows, she is not a democrat.
