Election Day Tea Party: Cash Direct To Candidates Effort
If the cash is going directly to the candidates for any organization, then it sounds like a good idea. I think the trending is away from giving to orgs and to candidates directly. And it's probaby how it should be.
ElectionDayTeaParty.com today announced a ground-breaking fundraising drive called Cash-for-Candidates. The program kicks off at noon Tuesday, October 12 and ends at midnight Wednesday, October 13. Over the course of 36 hours, conservatives are encouraged to visit www.electiondayteaparty.com and contribute directly to one or all Election Day Tea Party Top 50 Congressional candidates.
"The founding premise of the Cash-for-Candidates drive is that – just like Election Day Tea Party – we are putting people in touch with the campaigns themselves," said Lorie Medina, a co-organizer of the project.
"This is what makes Cash-for-Candidates different from every other fundraising effort up to this point. We are not bundling or aggregating donations; contributions don't end up in a PAC somewhere for someone else to determine where to put it. In pure Tea Party form, it is up to the individual donor to decide which campaigns to support."
