On Wednesday, 6/15/11, I will be announcing my run for the Republican nomination for the State Senate for the 52nd District currently held by Democrat Mike Frerichs. After having spoken with many of you and others around the district and state, I have been honored and humbled by the outpouring of support. Together, I know we can bring this seat back home to the Republican Party.
It goes without saying the level of harm that years of Democratic Party governing have caused this state. Many companies have left Illinois to never return, crushing tax increases, billions of unpaid bills, and the list goes on. The only way this changes is by changing the people in Springfield. The good news is, the 52nd State Senate district is one seat where we can replace a tax-and-spend Democrat with a conservative fiscal watchdog. This race will be difficult, make no mistake. Several Republican groups have listed this as a Tier 1 target and you can bet the Democrats will defend it with everything they have. I am up to the challenge, but I will need your help. Here are a few things you can do to help now:
- Attend the press conferences at Douglas Park Pavilion in Danville at 2pm on Wednesday or the one at the 4th Floor of Illinois Terminal in Champaign at 3:30 pm on Wednesday.
- Consider a donation to the campaign. You can do that online here: http://tinyurl.com/5remqo8 or you can write a check to Friends of John Bambenek and send to 715 Erin Drive, Champaign, IL, 61822.
- Volunteer to make phone calls are walk precincts. We will be starting *this* weekend. E-mail me if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Share this message with your friends and family!
Together, with your help, I know we can bring the 52nd State Senate seat back home to the Republican Party and, more importantly, bring about a New Day in Illinois!
Thank you for all your support!
John C. A. Bambenek
Republican Candidate for 52nd State Senate
P.S. This race will be difficult as the Democrats will throw everything they have into this district. That is why I need your strong support. A donation of $100, $50 or even $25 is crucial to our success. You can donate online here: http://tinyurl.com/5remqo8
