View Full Version : Newsletter Update 11/2

This past month has certainly been an enjoyable one! After we met our goal of raising $100,000 by the end of the third quarter, I've been feeling a certain snowball effect kicking in. Not only did we get some great press from beating the incumbent for the quarter, but we've been getting the kind of coverage you would expect for a challenger about to pull an upset!

We had a very successful, very cutting-edge Twown Hall two weeks ago, and we all enjoyed it so much that we're going to try having them monthly. The next one is scheduled for November 18th. We've also had some great volunteer meetings where the boots on the ground are gathering and people are already engaged and excited. Check out the blog for more detailed reports. You can also see the new campaign schwag we've got in, and find out how to win some in our pledge contest. And now, we're preparing for a two-week tour with the Kokesh for Congress RV all over the western half of the district.

We also have a lot of exciting events coming up (like the Spaghetti Dinner and Outshoot a Marine) to get us a head start on fundraising for the next quarter, but we need your help. Please check out the calendar to see what events you can attend, and do what you can to get involved online. With the Rifle Rafle and Real Money Bomb events, there's no excuse to not get involved or make a donation today. For more details, see the message below from our Fundraising Coordinator, Mark Johnson.

We have a lot of work ahead of us still and the fight to establish real freedom in this country is far from won. Let us not be left struggling for a good answer when our children and grandchildren ask us what we did when freedom was dying in America.

Love, faith, respect,

Adam Kokesh

A message from Mark Johnson, Fundraising Coordinator for Kokesh for Congress:

Greetings from the Kokesh campaign!

There are a lot of new and exciting fundraising opportunities to get involved with in the days and weeks ahead, so here's a rundown of the variety of ways you can help out the Kokesh campaign in November.

For starters, we have the November 5th money bomb, which is being hosted by grassroots supports and activists. To get involved, click here and make a pledge to donate $25 to the Kokesh campaign on November 5th. Also, you can spread the word to your friends and family by sending them the link as well!

Next, we will be hosting a delicious all-you-can-eat spaghetti/lasagna/fettuccini dinner and silent auction on November 6th. The dinner and silent auction will be held at the Rose Garden in Clovis, NM. Click here to purchase your ticket now on our website.

On November 10th we will be having our first ever "Out Shoot a Marine" competition at the San Juan Wildlife Federation in Farmington, NM. Get there at 7pm so you can test your marksmanship skills against our nation's finest!

That same night we will be doing our in-district rifle raffle. Stop by East Main Trade and Western Energy in Farmington, NM, to purchase raffle tickets for a Howa M-1500 rifle package. That raffle is made possible by the generous support of Glen and Becky Fuller of East Main Trade.

After the "Out Shoot a Marine" competition and rifle raffle, we are going to start another groundbreaking fundraiser. On November 11th, we are starting our first ever "Real Money" Bomb. From Veterans Day until Adam's birthday (February 1st), you will be able to donate gold and silver to the campaign! Isn't it about time we start using "Real Money" that doesn't lose its value in this great country?

To cap everything off, we are hosting a nation-wide rifle raffle. The rifle of choice is the Remington 770. To partake in this thrilling affair donate $20.10, or multiples of that amount, to enter you in the drawing. We will announce the winner via live-stream webcast on November 24th. Stay tuned to the campaign website for details and updates.

We're hard at work fighting for liberty at the Kokesh campaign, but none of this is possible without your support! Please do what you can to get involved with these great events, or simply make a contribution now on our website. Any amount will take us one step closer to our goal of restoring constitutional government in this country.

Your friend in liberty,

Mark Johnson
