Baldwin Campaign: Upping the stakes
Iím facing an important personal decision about my future and our efforts to build a more progressive America.† And so Iím writing to ask for your input and support.
As you may know, thereís been speculation about whether I will enter the 2012 race for Wisconsinís open U.S. Senate seat.††Over the past weeks, Iíve heard from friends across Wisconsin and across the country who have urged me to consider a campaign for higher office. †
But,†before I can commit to a race for the U.S. Senate, I need to know that Iíll have enough financial backingÖ the kind of backing that will allow me to run a campaign equal to the enthusiasm and spirit of my supporters on the ground.
The extremely important June 30th filing deadline is only a week away.
If you believe that I should be a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2012, I hope that you will help show that we have the support to run and win by making a special contribution.

----, when I first ran for Congress, all the pundits and old guard political insiders were telling me that I couldnít succeed.† Even some of my fellow Democrats said the odds were stacked against me.†
And itís true.† Wisconsin had never in all its history even sent a woman to Congress.† But together, you and I proved the doubters wrong. †
If I run for U.S. Senate, it canít be a half-hearted campaign.† We are indeed upping the stakes and it has to be a full-throttle effort that reaches out to voters all across Wisconsin.
Before I can commit to this kind of race, I need to know that youíre with me.
And with a critical fundraising deadline coming up on June 30th, I need your response today.† So please, take a moment right now to help me send a message about our strength and determination.
Help me show the naysayers we have what it takes to make history again.
