Ron Paul sent out the following message regarding today’s “Ready, Ames, Fire!” Moneybomb:
You’ve heard the news.
Last week, I announced I will not seek re-election to Congress and will instead focus on my Presidential campaign.
I believe that you and I have an unprecedented opportunity to restore our nation’s prosperity and rein in big government.
We can WIN the Republican nomination for President, and I believe now is the time we can take the White House in November 2012.
With the August 13 Iowa Straw Poll fast approaching, I’m counting on your support to help me finish strong and add to our increasing momentum.
Because the Iowa Straw Poll is so important, my supporters are holding a Money Bomb on Tuesday, July 19.
And the truth is, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
You see, my campaign’s first TV ad is now on the air in Iowa and New Hampshire and is making an enormous impact.
In fact, one recent Iowa poll confirmed what I’ve been seeing on the ground for weeks.
My campaign is growing incredibly, and I’m now within striking distance of first place!
But to keep this ad running – and pay for the critical direct mail, radio, and other marketing it will take for my campaign to surge to the lead – it’s vital I have your support!
So won’t you agree to make a generous contribution to my campaign by visiting www.RonPaul2012.com on Tuesday, July 19?
It’s crucial that you do so.
You see, right now, all eyes are on Iowa..
And unlike other polls, the August 13 Iowa Straw Poll isn’t one the media can spend weeks hyping and then simply dismiss.
The Iowa Straw Poll has always been a crucial bellwether for the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses.
It can turn a candidate into an instant contender – or CRUSH any hope of future success with a poor showing.
This year, the Iowa Straw Poll is more important than ever.
Right now, many GOP voters are desperately searching for a candidate who can go toe-to-toe with President Obama.
They want someone who can lead this country back to prosperity – with a consistent record of standing on principle to back up his actions.
I firmly believe that once voters take the time to learn about the issues and look at all the candidates, they’ll see that my record as a constitutional conservative is unmatched.
Columnists, TV pundits, talk radio hosts, and other national media commentators are all looking to the Iowa Straw Poll to see which candidate or candidates have what it takes to win.
And with my record of NEVER toeing the establishment line, I am the LAST candidate they want to acknowledge as a top contender.
So I’m counting on you to help me send shockwaves throughout the national political establishment with a strong finish at the Iowa Straw Poll.
The good news is, they can’t ignore us for long.
That’s because the momentum is ours.
My campaign will only get stronger as the weeks and months progress.
A strong showing on August 13 is our chance to show that my campaign has the organization and the message to not only stand toe-to-toe with any opponent, but to win this race.
And if you and I can capitalize on a top-tier finish in the Straw Poll with a massive blitz of campaign stops, media interviews, and paid ads, we’ll be laying the groundwork for a WIN in the Iowa caucuses and will build on serious momentum in other key states.
With your support, I believe we can continue shocking the political establishment and force them to recognize I’m a top-tier contender for the Republican nomination.
So I’ll hope you’ll agree to make a generous contribution at www.RonPaul2012.com on July 19.
I’m in this race to win, but I need the help of freedom-loving grassroots patriots to make that happen.
Thank you so much for all you do to advance the freedom message.
P.S. I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I’m not seeking re-election to Congress. Instead, I’m focusing on my campaign for President.
And with the Iowa Straw Poll fast approaching, it’s vital I have your support.
I hope I can count on you to visit www.RonPaul2012.com during the July 19 Money Bomb and make a donation to my campaign.
Together, I’m convinced we can win!
