Aaron Matson would like to thank you for giving to his campaign for South Dakota State Treasurer. I think we owe him thanks too! Running for office is hard, hard work, and without great Democrats like him putting in that work, well, we’d all be speaking Trump pretty soon.
To the Balloon Juice community:
I am blown away by the great response from this community to my campaign. There are no words to describe how humbled and grateful I am for the kind words and the donations from so many of you. The $1100 you raised for me will make a huge difference in my race – in a campaign for State Treasurer of South Dakota, that is a substantial amount of money. In the last couple of days, you all have put new wind in my sails to keep pushing and working my heart out for these last 50+ days. If I win, this community will have been an essential part of that victory.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
I’d also like to re-up another fundraiser at readers’ request, since it came out a few minutes before some big Kavanaugh news broke:
Ballon Juicer Paul Wartenberg is from Florida-17 and wants us to know about the great Democratic candidate there.
