A note to candidates

First and foremost, thank you for stepping up to the plate and running for public office. We (my wife and I) wish we could support every candidate who asks us to but unfortunately our pockets are not that deep. So here's the deal: if you send me an email with a link to your campaign site, I will look at it. We contribute mainly to races where small contributions seem to have the best chance of moving the needle. That means we mostly contribute to low-profile congressional races in districts that are not heavily gerrymandered, and mostly in mid-term years. Because this is a presidential election, we are focused mainly on supporting groups that are engaged in voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts rather than direct contributions to campaigns. But it can't hurt to ask. So send me an email (the address is at the bottom of my home page) and include the word "dumptrump" (no spaces) in the subject line to get past my spam filter.
