Gregoire says she needs money to catch Obama wave

Posted by David Postman

I wrote earlier today about Gov. Chris Gregoire's comments to The Stranger about her concerns that she may miss out on this year's Democratic wave.

Just a short while ago her campaign sent out a fundraising e-mail making the plea even more direct.

A Democratic tidal wave is sweeping the nation -- but Washington is dangerously close to being left behind. ...

What would happen with Barack Obama in the White House, and more Democrats in Congress and the Legislature, but a George Bush Republican like Dino Rossi in control of our state?

While the rest of the country moved forward, our state would be left behind.

One of the things I enjoyed about this solicitation was the pseudo-specific amount of money that needed to be raised in order to prevent that scenario from unfolding.

The only way Washington will be a part of this wave is with the help of supporters like you! We need 400 supporters to take the next step and contribute to our campaign by August 31.

That's a classic technique of direct mail. But it never fails to amuse me.
