US Republican presidential hopeful, Ben Carson has made a passionate appeal to supporters to dole out fresh donations into his campaign.
He says he needs the money to battle virulent media attacks against him and his campaign.
Read his letter, unvarnished.
If you’ve been watching the news, you’ve seen that the media is in full attack mode. They’ve been tracking down and interviewing my childhood friends and even accusing me of fabricating parts of my personal history.
Funny, because this was the same media that time and again decided it off-limits to dig into then-candidate Barack Obama’s background.
The media’s double standard is incredible, but even worse is their viciousness and blatant disregard for the truth.
I’ll be honest — I need your help. Now. I always knew this campaign would be tough, but the media is now going off the rails and we need the resources to fight back, 24/7.
It is for you and your family that I am running, and with your help I will continue — no matter what — to rally men and women from every race, every class and every faith together in a common cause — to return government to the people.
As our movement continues to grow, I know the viciousness of the attacks will grow as well.
It shouldn’t have to be this way, but sadly that’s the reality we face. It’s why people despise politics and Washington, and it’s why people distrust the media.
I hope you will take just a moment to read this email and join me in this fight for our future.
Thank you, and God Bless you.
