     Dear  Fellow  Conservative,  

     "Did  he  help  us?  Yes  .  .  .  I'm  going  to  write  him  a  check."  

     That's  what  a  high-­powered  lobbyist  said  about  my  opponent
     less  than  a  week  after  a  bill  hiking  profits  for  his
     industry  became  state  law.  

     This  is  what  you  and  I  are  up  against  this  election.  

     An  establishment-­backed  insider  who  is  stuffing  his  campaign
     coffers  with  special-­interest  money.  

     In  fact,  my  opponent  has  already  abandoned  his  job  as  House
     Speaker  -­-­  TWICE  -­-­  to  wine  and  dine  at  fundraisers  hosted
     for  him  by  D.C.  lobbyists.  

     With  the  December  31  End  of  the  Quarter  fundraising  deadline
     tonight  at  midnight,  I  must  ask  you  for  your  most  generous
     financial  support.  

     Fellow  Conservative,  there's  no  doubt  I'm  going  to  be
     outspent  by  my  opponent  in  this  race.  

     After  all,  my  opponent  is  the  hand-­picked  candidate  of
     Washington  insiders  who  have  one  goal:  To  keep  their
     taxpayer-­funded,  special  interest  gravy  train  running  full
     speed  ahead.

1/3/14                                                             Gmail - I will be outspent


     But  there's  one  weapon  in  my  arsenal  that  my  opponent  and
     his  lobbyist  pals  don't  have.  .  .  

     .  .  .  and  that's  the  support  of  grassroots  conservatives
     like  you  who  are  FED  UP  with  business-­as-­usual  in
     Washington.  

     Right  now,  my  campaign  is  close  to  reaching  our  goal  of
     2,014  donations  for  our  2014  Grassroots  Victory  Fund.  

     And  I  can't  stress  enough  how  important  it  is  that  we  reach
     our  goal.  

     You  see,  tonight  at  midnight  I  have  to  publicly  disclose  to
     the  FEC  my  fundraising  totals  for  this  quarter.  

     This  is  the  most  important  day  of  my  campaign  yet,  as  by  the
     time  the  next  quarter  ends,  early  voting  will  already  be
     started.  

     With  the  early  voting  kicking  into  high  gear  after  the  New
     Year,  we  need  to  have  the  funds  to  implement  our  voter
     contact  program  by  opening  grassroots  centers  and  contacting
     voters  through  mail,  email,  phone  banks  and  door-­to-­door
     canvassing  as  soon  as  the  calendar  turns  to  2014.  

     My  campaign  team  has  developed  a  proven,  state  of  the  art,
     grassroots  mobilization  program  that  will  give  100's  of
     volunteers  the  tools  to  defeat  my  establishment  backed
     opponent  in  May's  primary  and  go  on  to  defeat  Senator  Hagan
     and  President  Obama's  political  machine  in  November.  

     This  includes  a  conservative  voter  mobilization  plan
     consisting  of  email,  direct  mail,  phone  banking,  online  and
     social  media  ads  -­-­  and  if  we  have  the  resources  -­-­  hard
     hitting  TV  and  radio  ads  all  designed  to  spread  my
     conservative  message  to  voters  across  the  state.  

     This  is  a  time-­tested  program  that  propelled  Ted  Cruz,  Rand
     Paul  and  Mike  Lee  to  victory  over  better-­funded
     establishment  moderates  in  their  campaigns.  

     So  please  make  the  most  generous  contribution  you  can  afford
     right  away.  

     Whether  it's  $500,  $250,  $100,  $75,  or  $50,  any  amount  you
     can  contribute  will  be  a  tremendous  boost  to  my  campaign.  

     Whatever  amount  you  can  afford,  your  contribution  will  be
     greatly  appreciated  and  put  to  immediate  use  -­-­  and  I

1/3/14                                                             Gmail - I will be outspent

     promise  to  be  a  careful  steward  of  your  trust.  

     Believe  me,  I  understand  only  a  few  people  are  able  to
     afford  $2,600  ($5,200  per  couple)  -­-­  the  maximum  legal
     amount  under  federal  law.  

     But  if  you  are  such  a  person,  I  believe  this  race  is  an
     investment  worth  making.  

     But  I  also  understand  that  $50  or  $100  may  be  all  many  folks
     can  give.  

     In  fact,  I  know  for  some  even  $10  or  $20  is  a  sacrifice.  

     All  I'm  asking  is  that  you  help  me  fight  the  Washington  and
     Raleigh  establishment  by  contributing  whatever  you  can  to  my
     campaign.  

     The  Big  Government  establishment  knows  I'm  not  one  of  "their
     guys."  

     And  they  want  nothing  more  than  to  see  the  Tea  Party
     candidate  go  down  in  flames  this  election.  

     I'm  sure  you  understand  the  stakes  should  they  succeed.  

     Our  national  debt  is  nearly  $17  TRILLION.  Unemployment  is
     still  sky-­high.  The  ObamaCare  train  wreck  is  fast
     approaching.  

     Our  U.S.  Constitution  is  held  in  utter  disregard  by  EVERY
     branch  of  government  in  Washington,  D.C.  

     And  every  phone  call,  every  text,  every  email,  and  who  knows
     what  else  from  every  American  citizen  all  now  reside  in  the
     government's  hands.  

     The  truth  is,  if  you  and  I  don't  turn  things  around  -­-­
     IMMEDIATELY  -­-­  our  children  and  grandchildren  may  never  know
     the  freedoms  intended  for  them  by  the  Founding  Fathers.  

     That's  one  thought  that  keeps  me  up  at  night.  

     And  that's  why  I'm  asking  you  to  make  a  generous
     contribution  of  whatever  you  can  afford  to  my  campaign.  

     The  difference  between  me  and  my  opponent  in  this  race
     couldn't  be  any  clearer.  

     My  opponent  is  an  establishment  insider  who  believes  he  is
     entitled  to  North  Carolina's  Senate  seat,  and  he's  marching
https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=07c101b47f&view=pt&q=gregbrannon.com&qs=true&search=query&msg=1434a2c3ea7b1c4c   3/6
1/3/14                                                             Gmail - I will be outspent

     to  Washington  to  cut  deals  that  benefit  his  cronies.  

     Not  too  long  ago,  he  appointed  three  individuals  to  the
     prestigious  Board  of  Governors  who  stuffed  his  campaign
     coffers  with  over  $70,000.  

     But  this  should  come  as  no  surprise.  

     My  opponent  has  a  history  of  carrying  the  water  for  the  big
     money  lobbyist  who  are  fueling  his  campaign.  

     His  Chief  of  Staff  -­-­  who  shared  an  apartment  with  my
     opponent  -­-­  and  his  Policy  Analyst  were  forced  to  resign
     after  it  was  revealed  they  were  having  "inappropriate"
     relationships  with  lobbyists.  

     But  my  opponent  still  gave  both  of  them  "golden  parachutes"
     -­-­  a  full  months  pay  after  they  resigned  from  their
     position.  

     My  opponent  has  even  used  his  leadership  position  in  the
     State  House  to  defeat  Republican  candidates  in  party
     primaries  in  favor  of  Democrats  who  switched  parties  or  were
     part  of  his  personal  circle  of  political  allies.  

     This  isn't  the  kind  of  "leadership"  you  deserve  in
     Washington.  

     This  is  exactly  what  got  us  in  this  mess  in  the  first  place.

     You  deserve  a  Senator  who  will  go  to  Washington  and  fight
     for  YOU  -­-­  not  for  the  lobbyist  that  writes  them  the  highest
     check.  

     If  elected  to  the  U.S.  Senate,  I  will  NEVER  compromise  my
     core  values  and  principles,  and  I  will  lead  the  fight  to  end
     business-­as-­usual  in  Washington.  

     So  won't  you  please  make  a  generous  contribution  to  my
     campaign  IMMEDIATELY.  

     I'm  not  running  for  Senate  for  the  "perks"  of  being  in
     office  or  to  join  the  "good  ole  boys"  network.  

     I'm  running  for  Senate  to  go  to  Washington  and,  as  Ted  Cruz
     put  it,  "kick  down  the  door,  tear  down  the  curtains,  and
     auction  off  the  silver."  

     I  want  to  fight  for  YOU.  For  my  seven  children.  For  YOUR
     children  and  grandchildren's  future.  

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=07c101b47f&view=pt&q=gregbrannon.com&qs=true&search=query&msg=1434a2c3ea7b1c4c   4/6
1/3/14                                                             Gmail - I will be outspent

     And  for  the  over  9,000  babies  I've  been  fortunate  enough  to
     deliver  as  an  OB/GYN.  

     But  as  I  told  you,  I  can't  do  it  without  your  immediate  help
     and  support.  

     That's  why  I'm  counting  on  you  to  make  a  generous
     contribution  of  $500,  $250,  $100,  $50,  $25  -­-­  any  amount  you
     can  afford  -­-­  immediately  to  my  campaign.  

     Even  if  all  you  can  do  is  chip  in  $10  or  $15,  any  amount
     will  be  greatly  appreciated  and  put  to  immediate  use.  

     You  and  I  can't  afford  any  more  deal  making  moderates  who
     want  to  get  along  with  Democrats  instead  of  FIGHTING  Barack
     Obama's  socialist  agenda.  

     If  you  want  real  reform,  someone  who  will  stand  up  for
     freedom  against  the  overreaching  federal  government,  then  I
     need  your  help  like  never  before.  

     So  please  help  me  reach  my  fundraising  goal  for  this  quarter
     by  making  the  most  generous  contribution  you  can  afford  to
     my  campaign.  

     Together,  you  and  I  can  rock  the  political  establishment  and
     turn  Washington  on  its  head.  

     Thank  you  in  advance  for  your  support.  

     Sincerely,




     Greg  Brannon,  MD  
     Republican  Candidate
     United  States  Senate  

     P.S.  The  End  of  the  Quarter  Fundraising  Deadline  ends
     tonight  at  midnight.  

     And  my  campaign  is  close  to  reaching  our  goal  of  2,014
     donations.  

     This  is  the  most  important  day  of  my  campaign  yet,  as  early
     voting  will  have  already  started  by  the  time  the  next
     quarter  ends.  

     So  please  make  the  most  generous  contribution  you  can  afford
     right  away.
