Dear Ms. Luidhardt,
I don't want to believe that you've abandoned the Republican Party, but I have to ask... Have you given up?
Our records show that we have not yet received your Republican National Committee membership renewal for the critical 2008 presidential election year.
As the Treasurer of the RNC, I know our Party's success depends directly on grassroots leaders like you.
So I am surprised and concerned especially because I know how generously you supported President Bush and the RNC in the past. You helped to advance our vision for America and elect Republicans at all levels of government.
Ms. Luidhardt, I know other things come up, and perhaps you've just been delayed in renewing your membership. If that's the case, I understand.
But we've not heard from you this year - - and I hope you haven't deserted our Party.
nice country you got there. it would be a shame if democrats got elected and ruined it! OMG obama is so scary! donate now!
this letter reeks of desperation. i'm not an expert in fundraising—that's my fiancée's bag—but i suspect that badgering your prospects and insinuating that they're a bunch of traitorous quitters probably isn't the best way to win their loyalty.
(h/t bilerico, where alex was nice enough to type out the email, making it easier to cut-and-paste.) ¶
