This week was a very big week for the Wilson for Assembly 2010 campaign.
We received national attention for our race in the National Review Online. You can read Jay Nordlinger’s profile by clicking here.
The outpouring of support has been truly amazing. Not only did I receive complimentary phone calls and emails from around the country – some individuals from as far away as Alabama even sent in contributions to the campaign.
I hope I can count on you to help. Here’s 3 things you can do:
–Forward this article to 10 people who you think would help
–Make a contribution online this week to join the many others across the country who have done the same
-Join me for my October 11th event in Livermore
As always, I’m grateful for your support.
