Brandt —

It matters a whole lot more how many people are standing with us as we enter the last full day of this hard-fought campaign than it does how much money we raise before shutting down our online fundraising operation.

If I wanted to play Mitch McConnell’s game, I could sell my soul to the Washington Republican establishment, do what the party bosses tell me to do, fall in line even when it’s wrong for our state — and these guys would fall over themselves trying to pour money into North Carolina to help me win.

Just like my opponent, Thom Tillis, who they’ve spent more than $80 million to save in this toss-up election.

But that’s just not how I do things. The purpose of our campaign is to make sure the people of North Carolina have a U.S. Senator who will fight for them in Washington, not corporate interests.

I think you’ll agree, we need more independent leaders in Washington right now — and that’s why I hope you’ll step up today.

Thanks again,
