A grassroots effort to bolster the campaign coffers of Second Amendment champion Steve McLaughlin is underway.
A money bomb is slated for Aug. 10 and the goal is to raise as much cash as possible for the Upstate assemblyman as he weighs a 2014 bid for the governor’s office. He needs our support!
At last check, Gov. Cuomo had about $27.8 million in his war chest, while Steve had about $20,000.
Although that may sound daunting, we need to remember Cuomo draws in his cash from elites eating off $5,000 plates. But if just 25 percent of New York State’s 4 million-plus gun owners gave $25 each, Steve would be right there with him.
Steve’s stalwart support for the Second Amendment has rallied liberty-lovers from across the state. His consistent, no-compromise positions; eloquent-yet-straightforward speaking style; and his courage make him an ideal candidate to run against a corrupt scion of the Albany-New York City political machine.
The former commercial airline pilot from Melrose represents the 107th Assembly District, which includes parts of Albany, Columbia, Greene and Rensselaer counties. He won election to the Assembly in 2010.
Money bombs gained fame during Ron Paul during his 2008 presidential bid and are a way for grassroots candidates to keep pace with the political elites through coordinated funding drives, which feature modest – but en masse – contributions all in one day.
The event is being organized through social media platforms, including Facebook.
Please join us and support Steve on Aug. 10 as he considers a run for the governor’s office! Make your pledge today at www.stevemclaughlinvictory.com.
