The Presidential primaries have begun, and we're already in the middle of some major campaigns to promote and defend marriage. 2012 has begun with a bang—I'm currently writing to you from Texas where I'm meeting with key religious leaders. I've already been to Iowa for the caucuses and will soon be going to South Carolina.
But I wanted to take a minute to write you a quick note and let you know—WE DID IT!
As you know, a very generous donor gave us 3 months, during which time they would match every donation we received dollar-for-dollar up to one million. As of this morning, we have raised $995,339.85, and I'm awaiting a final update on the mail returns from the end of the year. But given the mail volume we received to date, I've no doubt and am extremely happy to announce that we are going to reach our goal of raising $1 million!
And it couldn't have happened without incredible supporters like you. Thank you so much for standing with us and giving us your support in defense of marriage.
The cause of marriage will win out in the end in no small part due to you and millions of Americans just like you. I am honored to be your representative in the fight to defend marriage.
Thank you for your continued support and trust. It means so much to me and to this just cause.
God bless you!
