A Personal Beseechment to Republican Office-holders From LPR

June 6, 2021 --

During the 2020 election cycle, the LPR mailbox was filled, just about daily, with numerous requests for donations from Republican members of the House and Senate, from GOP candidates, from conservative organizations.

In recent weeks, my mailbox is again stuffed with beseechments for contributions.  Please understand that LPR's means are quite limited.   I would also point out that LPR's letters to the Republican National Committee chair never get personal answers -- just more form requests for  dollars.

Yes, money is an important factor, but the political message is uppermost.  To all GOP solicitation beseechers, LPR advises that you turn to the first half of Federalist No. 57 and apply its message of conservative populism in your campaigns.  Indeed, why not have Republican candidates campaign as a team? The voters, after all do not respond to greenbacks; they respond to the political message that stirs their souls.
