Bluster or Real Threat?

I found this posted on the ABJ comments section in Wednesday's online edition:

Dear Friend,

There are exactly 13 days until Election Day. Ohio is, once again, a critical bellwether state and we need your financial leadership more than ever before.

Ohio Republicans have a secret weapon against the Democrats that will add between 3-5% to every candidate on the ballot. That will give us the "winning edge" in key races for the U.S. Senate, Congress and the State Legislature.

It's an 88-county grassroots machine that's inspired, well-trained, and battle-tested. Perhaps you read all about it in the October 9th issue of Time Magazine. We're ready to unleash it on the Democrats in the final 72-hours before Election Day and there's only one thing stopping us:


We must raise $20,000 in the next 48 hours and your help is more than vital, it's indispensable. Please go to [Web site deleted so that no one goes there by accident]to make your safe and secure on-line credit card contribution of $100, $250, or $500 and help us shock the Democrats by winning big on Election Day.

Don't ever think your commitment doesn't matter. It does!

Thank you for your continued hard work and generous support.

This looks like desperation tactics to me. Republicans don't normally beg for nickel and dime donations -- do they?
