Liberty Iowa is holding a moneybomb today for our liberty delegates headed to the national convention. Donations given today will be used to assist those delegates we fought so hard to elect.
I've heard a few different estimates thrown out, but it is my understanding that the absolute lowest amount you could spend to be in Tampa as a national delegate is over $2,000. The hotel room alone (and you do have to stay with your delegation) is $289 a night (if I remember correctly, this was the information our delegates were given the day of our state convention). Of course there is also the cost of transportation to Tampa, and you do have to eat while you're there...
Our national delegates from Iowa are some pretty amazing people. They are well-spoken, hard-working, dedicated to the cause, and in my opinion, pretty brave to do this. One of them is currently running for the Iowa senate; it would be great if he could save this money for that campaign so we can elect one more true constitutional conservative to our state senate!
I know people are always asking for your money, and I respect a person for having a healthy skepticism of organizations they aren't familiar with. I'm not here to push Liberty Iowa on you, but I want to do everything I can to convince you that the group is trustworthy and it is worth supporting these delegates. Liberty Iowa is a fairly new PAC, but those who established it and work for it have been fighting for liberty for a long time-- a great deal of the success we saw at the district and state conventions in Iowa was due to the hard work and organization of their staff and volunteers. They will continue to work to support our delegates through the national convention. And again, money given today does not go to Liberty Iowa, but to the national delegates.
So if you would like to support liberty delegates to the national convention, please consider this moneybomb. Also, I suggested they do this instead of a traditional fundraiser, so if it doesn't work I'll look like a doofus... ;)
Thanks! And again, I hope I am not out of line.
