#NC02 Renee Ellmers Needs Your Help

#TeaParty Patriots, your task in this election is not complete. Renee Ellmers needs your help. Strangling Bob Etheridge is trying to become a thief as well as an attacker of young people asking questions. (If you recall, Etheridge earlier this year objected to a young man asking Etheridge if Etheridge supported Obama's policies by grabbing the young by the neck and demanding to know, "Who are you?") Renee Ellmers won the seat fair and square, but Etheridge has forced a re-count for the seat. Via PowerLine:

Renee Ellmers has prevailed by 1,600 votes against Democratic incumbent Bob "Who are you?" Etheridge in North Carolina's Second Congressional District. Etheridge has demanded a recount. Yesterday Ellmers posted an update regarding the recount.

In her update Ellmers notes that she is getting no financial help from the NRCC in connection with the recount, that she has retained 11 lawyers -- one for each of her district's 11 counties -- to represent her in the recount, and that she needs a minimum of $50,000 for legal assistance. The number sounds low to me, but there is no question that she needs help. Please consider supporting her with a contribution here.

Again, to contribute to Ellmers defense of the seat she has just won, please go HERE.

The Other McCain reports that Ellmers has gone public with the fact that the NRCC is MIA.
Months ago, I went to Washington and asked the National Republican Congressional Committee and many conservative leaders to help my campaign. Many conservative groups – like the Susan B. Anthony List, Concerned Women of America, Freedom Works, and Sarah Palin’s Sarah PAC all helped, but the NRCC declined. Later, they did support other campaigns in North Carolina – which, unfortunately, lost – but we never received their support. In fact, their spokesman told the press “that the campaign wasn’t ready for prime time” – which actually made it even harder for us to raise money. So, I am doubtful we will get support from the NRCC to help with the expense of the recount.

Again, to contribute to Ellmers defense of the seat she has just won, please go HERE.
