A Note from the Campaign Manager: I Have No Sense of Humor

I'm John Hickenlooper's campaign manager Mike Melanson, but unlike John, I have no sense of humor.

Contribute before midnight and make Mike smile

We're in the final hours of a fundraising deadline, and I need your help. No zebra suits. No threats from fictitious coyotes. No cute turns of phrase. We have to buy TV ads, and your response to this email will dictate how much we can spend. Every dime you contribute today, we'll spend on TV -- no joke.

Click here to contribute $5 before our midnight fundraising deadline to help us get on the air and fight the misleading attack ads!

See, I told you I wasn't funny. My kids don't even like my jokes.

But John has always been known for his ability to connect with people through TV ads, and we're not going to disappoint. We're going to strike when it matters, and we're going to make sure everyone knows John is the only candidate running for governor who has created jobs, balanced tough budgets and brought a businessman's perspective to government.

But it's up to you to make sure people see those ads.

We only have 10 hours before our midnight deadline -- please click here to contribute and help us run the TV ads John is known for!

John is determined to run a positive campaign. He tells us all the time that he didn't leave the brewpub business to run a bunch of dishonest attack ads. But the dishonest attacks on John have already started. Despite being debunked by the press and denounced by Frontier Airlines, the ads are still running.

John told the Denver Post, "If that's the best they can do, I'm not terribly worried."

Misleading ads don't scare me either. But we know this is only the beginning. Our opponents and their allies are already lining up millions of dollars to distort John's record and mislead Colorado voters.

We've only got 10 hours before our midnight deadline -- please click here to contribute and respond to these misleading, negative ads!

Look, we began this campaign one year and one million dollars behind. This is going to be a very close race. If you think Colorado will be a better, more prosperous place with John in the governor's office, then we've got to have your continued support. No kidding.

Thanks so much for helping out,

Mike Melanson
Campaign Manager
Hickenlooper for Colorado
