Dear VoteVets.org Supporter,
There's been a lot of talk about the 2008 elections, and I'm sure your email box is full of appeals, but please give this one a read. I'll make it brief.
Two of the best shots we have at electing Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to Congress come in Maine and Minnesota, where Iraq veteran Adam Cote is running for Maine's first district, and Iraq veteran Ashwin Madia is running for Minnesota's 3rd. But, to get there, they need your help.

Both of these 21st Century Patriots will help dramatically change the face of Congress for the better. In a campaign season where you hear about a bunch of multi-million dollar bank accounts, and wonder if your contribution really matters, I can tell you that in these two races, every single penny counts - a lot.
Here are the types of Congressmen you will help elect by making a donation now:
In 2004 and 2005, Adam Cote served in Iraq as a platoon leader with Maine's 133rd Engineer Battalion. He led over 100 convoys in Iraq and was in charge of many reconstruction efforts, including building schools and medical clinics. Moved by the extreme poverty and deprivation in Iraq, Adam also took it upon himself to do more. He created and spearheaded the "Adopt an Iraqi Village" program, which distributes school supplies and other items to destitute Iraqis.
Ashwin Madia, the child of immigrants, served in Iraq from September 2005 to March 2006. While stationed in Baghdad, he worked with Iraqi judicial officers, U.S. military and civilian officials, and representatives of the European Union and United Nations to strengthen the Iraqi criminal justice system. He also briefed top U.S. generals on the status of the rule of law in the country.
This is the type of unique and personal experience in the war that is desperately needed on Capitol Hill. Help make it a reality.
