The Jason Carter gubernatorial campaign has sent a message to supporters claiming it doesn’t have enough money to buy TV ads.
Campaign manager Matt McGrath is asking for $5 donations “to help get Jason’s message out.”
Here’s the message:
“We’re in trouble.
“Gov. Deal just spent more than a million bucks to plaster his new commercial on every TV across the state.
“I’ve been looking over our budget, and we simply can’t afford to go on the air to tell Jason’s story yet. So we need your help.
“Chip in $5 to help us get Jason’s message out.
“Deal has spent years stockpiling millions of dollars for his campaign. There are a lot of deep-pocketed special interests who want to beat Jason in this race. We need to count on you to stand against them.
“Deal’s ad is full of distortions about his weak record as governor. But until we can afford to match his ad buy, it’s the only message that most Georgians will hear about this race.
Carter for Governor”
