As if we didn't need more reason to support Justin, the US Chamber of Commerce just endorsed Brian Ellis. The Chamber spends a lot on tv ads for their endorsed candidates (i.e., Thad Cochran in MS and Mike Simpson in ID).

From the official campaign:


We're less than three weeks away from the August 5 primary, and Justin's establishment opponent is trying every trick in the book to deceive voters. It's gotten so bad that the National Journal labeled this race "the ugliest House primary of the cycle."

Yesterday, we found out that Brian Ellis has dumped more than $800,000 of his own money into the race -- and his fundraising numbers were buoyed by an additional $60,000 of lobbyist and D.C. special-interest money.

Now the U.S. Chamber is coming out against us. Moments ago, Big Business's lobby announced that they'll help fund Ellis's smear campaign. Justin is the top opponent of their No. 1 agenda item: reauthorizing the Ex-Im corporate welfare bank.

All the data show that we're in a good position, but it is an absolute necessity that we raise money to combat the coming wave of attack ads.

Thankfully, our grassroots supporters have recognized this need and are organizing an online money bomb this Friday, July 18. This will be a 24-hour push to raise as much money as possible for Justin's campaign.

The money bomb will take place at www.justinamash.com.

You'll see more information from the campaign soon, but I wanted to give you a quick notice about Friday's money bomb so you can participate.

In liberty,

Connie Lemmink
Justin Amash for Congress

P.S. If you won't be around a computer on Friday but want to help, you can make an advance donation today to make sure your support gets counted in the overall total.

They allowed people to "pre-donate", basically schedule a donation that would not actually hit the account until tomorrow. I guess they have added those to the ticker as people put them in though.

For anyone on the fence on this, if you think $20 won't make a difference, I can tell you it will, certainly when enough jump in. It's amazing how things can add up. This race is critical for liberty. Justin has so much going for him, and what he is doing for us is outstanding. Liberty supports need to keep him in office.

If you don't think your $20 will help much, I will match it to make your donation equal to $40. Good for the first five people who are on the fence with donating but have now decided to.

http://www.wzzm13.com/story/news/politics/elections/2014/07/17/ellis-amash-spending-primary/12775603/


WASHINGTON (GANNETT NEWS BUREAU) Brian Ellis, the Republican financial consultant hoping to upset GOP Rep. Justin Amash in next month's primary, has committed $800,000 of his own money to the race, new campaign disclosure reports show.That puts him among the top 10 self-funders running for the House this year, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington group that tracks political fundraising. But Ellis still had only about half as much cash in the bank as Amash about a month before the August 5 primary.
And Amash has benefited from about $373,000 in independent advertising from the conservative Club for Growth, which wants to see him re-elected.
That compares with the approximately $844,000 that Amash's own campaign has spent through June and the $1 million that Ellis has spent.
Ellis, however, reported spending about $394,000 on television advertising in the second quarter, compared with the $81,000 Amash spent on media production and advertising.

Amash has more cash on hand and polls to win - but Ellis advertising is ramping up, Ellis has received the endorsement of the Chamber of Commerce (which says alot about the Chamber of Commerce).

This is no time to be complacent !!

The moneybomb goal is $20,000, but that's not a lot when it comes to fighting off the absurd attacks of the Ellis campaign (saying Amash is Al-Qaeda's best friend in Congress for instance).

It's vital that Justin Amash remains in Congress. If ever there is a race to ensure victory, this is it.

I had a recommendation for his website and it was implemented in less than an hour, with a professional and personal response. This is not to say I have good ideas, it was a small thing, but it showed me something about this campaign and team that I think speaks to how well and professionally decisions will be made. I think it's likely that money will be well spent. I implore you without coercion to donate NOW

Just got an email:


We know we’ve asked a lot from you over the last nine months since Justin’s establishment opponent unleashed his smear campaign.

And -- trust me -- we know you can’t wait to send Brian Ellis packing and return Justin Amash to Congress for another term.

But a lot can happen over the next 18 days.

Will Brian Ellis put even MORE MONEY behind his negative ads? Will Ellis’s Washington patrons find a back-channel route to air anonymous attacks?

This campaign truly is a battle of entrenched Washington elites vs. the grassroots. We rely on the generosity of supporters to battle our self-funding opponent.

Think that one donation can’t make a difference? Think again! This is how your money bomb donation today can be put to work:

- $40 will buy a large 4x6 sign and metal posts (they look AWESOME)

- $75 will fill the campaign truck’s gas tank

- $150 buys a dozen t-shirts for our parade walkers

- $500 is enough to send a mail piece to an entire neighborhood

- $1,000 will pay for an afternoon of radio ads on conservative talk shows

- $2,600 -- the maximum-allowable amount -- will pay for six 30-second TV ads

Now think about how much help we could give Justin if everyone on our email list chipped in for today’s money bomb!

Please stand with us one more time today and chip in whatever you can spare.

Re bold, like they did to McDaniel? Yikes. I wouldn't put it past them.

Yeah, Amash has a few orgs lined up against him. I think Ellis had at least 200K on hand at the end of last quarter (ignoring his debt). This money is important for Amash to be able to counter that.

From Don Goris, Justin Amash for Congress:

If you want to see the difference between grassroots and top-down campaigns, look at what our supporters are doing for Justin today.

For weeks they’ve been quietly organizing a money bomb for Justin. They bought a domain name (JustinAmashMoneyBomb.com) and they designed a website. They’ve spread the word online.

They’re hosting the money bomb on Friday, July 18. That’s today!

Can you give an (electronic) high-five to our supporters by donating to the money bomb TODAY?

[Donate Now: https://amash.nationbuilder.com/donate-july18?utm_campaign=july18mb2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=amash]

We know we’ve asked a lot from you over the last nine months since Justin’s establishment opponent unleashed his smear campaign.

And -- trust me -- we know you can’t wait to send Brian Ellis packing and return Justin Amash to Congress for another term.

But a lot can happen over the next 18 days.

Will Brian Ellis put even MORE MONEY behind his negative ads? Will Ellis’s Washington patrons find a back-channel route to air anonymous attacks?

[Donate Now: https://amash.nationbuilder.com/donate-july18?utm_campaign=july18mb2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=amash]

This campaign truly is a battle of entrenched Washington elites vs. the grassroots. We rely on the generosity of supporters to battle our self-funding opponent.

Think that one donation can’t make a difference? Think again! This is how your money bomb donation today can be put to work:

- $40 will buy a large 4x6 sign and metal posts (they look AWESOME)
- $75 will fill the campaign truck’s gas tank
- $150 buys a dozen t-shirts for our parade walkers
- $500 is enough to send a mail piece to an entire neighborhood
- $1,000 will pay for an afternoon of radio ads on conservative talk shows
- $2,600 -- the maximum-allowable amount -- will pay for six 30-second TV ads

[Donate Now: https://amash.nationbuilder.com/donate-july18?utm_campaign=july18mb2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=amash]

Now think about how much help we could give Justin if everyone on our email list chipped in for today’s money bomb!

Please stand with us one more time today and chip in whatever you can spare.

In liberty,

Don Goris
Justin Amash for Congress

P.S. We know we’ve asked a lot from you over the last several months, but we can’t back down when we’re so close to the finish line. Any donation you make to today’s money bomb -- $25 or $2,600 -- will help Justin finish this campaign strong.

Brian Ellis spotted recently in Washington D.C.

From Connie Lemmink, Justin Amash for Congress:

Look who we spotted!

That’s Brian Ellis in the tan suit on the left. He’s huddling in D.C. with two of his fat cat money men.

Moments after we snapped the photo, Ellis and his pack scurried into the members-only Capitol Hill Club to schmooze with other representatives of the influence industry.

What was Ellis doing in D.C. with his insider pals? We started to figure it out last night.

Last night -- just hours after we caught him living it up in D.C. -- Ellis reported his quarterly fundraising total.

Justin more than doubled Ellis’s fundraising from grassroots supporters like you. But Ellis was able to make up some ground by raking in more than $60,000 from PACs, lobbyists, and special interests!

No wonder Ellis looks right at home in Washington’s smoke-filled rooms.

[Donate Now: https://amash.nationbuilder.com/donate?utm_campaign=camera&utm_medium=email&utm_source=amash]

This is what we’re up against. Do we want a congressman who goes along with the Washington establishment? Who’s giddy to do the lobbyists’ bidding? Or do we want to keep a congressman who stands on principle and won’t sell out the people no matter the price?

We need Justin Amash in Congress now more than ever. With less than three weeks to go before Election Day, our campaign must have the resources to combat the special-interest money and to communicate with voters.

Tonight, will you stand with Justin by donating $10, $35, $100, or $250?

[Donate Now: https://amash.nationbuilder.com/donate?utm_campaign=camera&utm_medium=email&utm_source=amash]

We’re so close to winning this. Our entire team thanks you for your continued time, support, and prayers.

In liberty,

Connie Lemmink

P.S. A donation of $250, $100, $35, or even $10 will help us counter the lobbyists’ money that’s helping fuel Ellis’s smears.

I am too ladylike to tweet at people, but I did donate.

~bump~

I never tweet, but I did today.

Can't wait until it's millions upon millions for his presidential campaign. I love that man almost as much as Ron.

Good word, $60,000? Almost more than triple what Amash got from this money bomb? Remind me why liberty style candidates mostly look to grassroots for fundraising and kicking the establishment to the curb when their opponents rake in big money like this?

This assumes that Amash is not raising funds through other means. This also pisses in the Wheaties of those that worked very hard to get people to donate and bring in over $23k. Big money generally comes with big obligations.
