Dear Fellow Conservative,

There are those in Congress who attack our liberties, push for increased government takeovers of private industry, and support out-of-control spending. They have put our nation on the path to fiscal ruin.

These “go along to get along” politicians in Washington are more concerned about re-election than about defending the Constitution from federal government overreach.

Thankfully, there are a few strong defenders of the Constitution who stand firm against out-of-control spending and overreach by politicians in both political parties…

Dr. Paul Broun of Georgia’s 10th District is one of those principled Constitutional conservatives in Congress.

He has worked hard to get federal spending under control by sponsoring a balanced budget amendment and a bill to repeal ObamaCare. He’s pushed for over $155 Billion in spending cuts over these last two years alone!

He has also been a strong proponent for oversight of the Federal Reserve and is now sponsoring my “Audit the Fed” bill in Congress. I cannot thank him enough for leading on this issue.

A few weeks ago Congressman Broun launched his campaign for U.S. Senate. He’s counting on grassroots Constitutional conservatives like you to rally with me in support of his campaign.

Below is a personal email from Congressman Broun to you about his grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate.

Please take a few moments to read it. Then join his efforts today with your most generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.

Congressman Broun has been a staunch ally against out-of-control spending from politicians in both parties, and he will continue that fight in the Senate. We need Paul there! Like me, he’s also one of the few remaining veterans of our armed forces serving in Washington.

You and I have an excellent opportunity to send one of our own to the U.S. Senate in 2014, and we must seize it.

Now more than ever, we must elect principled Constitutional conservatives who will reject the deficit-spending, “go along to get along” mentality in the U.S. Senate.

I am confident Paul Broun would join the ranks of principled U.S. Senators like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and my son Rand Paul.

Please read Congressman Broun’s enclosed letter. Then join me in support of his grassroots campaign today with your generous gift of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.

If we’re going to restore our Constitution and put our nation back on the path to prosperity, we must elect principled conservatives who will fight in Washington.

Paul Broun will continue fighting, and that’s why I endorsed his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Georgia.

Before you do anything else today, I ask you to read Congressman Paul Broun’s enclosed letter and join his grassroots campaign with your generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.

Thank you for standing with me and Congressman Broun today.

P.S. Patriotic, constitutional conservatives like you and me have an opportunity to send a proven, principled leader to the U.S. Senate. Please take a few moments to read the enclosed letter from Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia.

Once you’ve read his letter, please join his grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate with your most generous contribution of $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or even the federal maximum of $2,600. Thank you.

Fellow Conservative,

Thank you for taking the opportunity to read Congressman Ron Paul’s letter of support for my grassroots U.S. Senate campaign in Georgia.

We must elect principled conservatives who aren’t afraid to stand up and fight to restore our Constitution and our republic.

I worked side-by-side with Dr. Paul during his time in Congress to cut government spending, repeal ObamaCare, and bring transparency to the Federal Reserve…

…And like Dr. Paul, I proudly served our nation in the Armed Forces.

But before I tell you more about myself and my nationally-watched race, I want to ask you to join Dr. Ron Paul in supporting my conservative campaign with your generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35 today.

With you on our side, I know we can build an effective grassroots team to defeat whatever the Obama-Democrats put up against us.

Republicans must re-take the Senate in 2014 and dismantle the destructive Obama agenda. We can’t do that without holding the line in Georgia.

I’ve run tough campaigns before and have been through the fire. During my first campaign in June 2007, I ran against nine other candidates in a free-for-all special election.

Two of us advanced to the July runoff, where I squeaked out a victory over the Establishment’s hand-picked candidate.

The very next year in 2008, the “go along to get along” Establishment challenged me again in the primary — and I won. By November 2008, I had been on the ballot a total of four times in just 17 months. Trust me, I know how to win a GOP primary and build enough momentum to win again in the fall! For nearly two straight years I focused on meeting voters, knocking on doors, and maximizing my grassroots efforts in each of these campaigns.

That’s what it takes to succeed in Georgia politics, and that’s exactly what I’ll do throughout my grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate.

Like Dr. Ron Paul, I recognize the value of public service. As a young man, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves and trained to become a jet engine mechanic.

From there, I continued my military service in the US Navy Reserves and completed medical school

I still proudly put on the uniform today as a doctor in the Navy Reserves, where I treat our men and women in uniform.

It’s this life of hard work and sacrifice that allows me to fully understand what hardworking Georgia families are going through. Enough is enough. It’s time to restore discipline to the federal government.

No more big government… No more higher taxes… No more deficit spending… These are the reckless policies pushed by President Obama, Harry Reid, and their deficit-spending allies in the Senate. It must be stopped.

The fact of the matter is we can’t afford to send anymore big spending politicians from either party to Washington.

During my time in Congress, I have been a staunch and steadfast defender of our Constitution and our liberties.

I voted against TARP, the bailouts, and ObamaCare…

…And I routinely oppose other big spending measures that leverage our children and grandchildren’s future to score cheap political points.

President Obama, Harry Reid, and the Democrats in Congress have had their foot on the gas for long enough. If we don’t stop them, they’re going to take us right off the financial and economic cliff! Dr. Paul and I reached out to you today to ask you to join my campaign, so we can put the brakes on the big spending Obama-Reid agenda in Washington. We must reverse course immediately.

I’m battle-tested and campaign-ready to run against whatever liberal Democrat candidate they recruit to run against me. But to win, I must have your support today.

Please take just a moment to join my campaign with your most generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.

With your generous support, I know I will be able to build a statewide grassroots network of committed conservative activists who will help turn out the vote and defeat the Obama-Reid-backed big spending Democrat.

Please stand with Dr. Ron Paul by supporting my campaign today with your generous gift of $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or even the federal maximum of $2,600.

Thank you for your friendship and support. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

P.S. I am proud to have the endorsement of former Congressman Ron Paul, who was a staunch defender of the Constitution during his time in Congress. Together we worked to balance the budget, oppose ObamaCare, and bring accountability and transparency to the Federal Reserve.

Please join Dr. Paul in supporting my grassroots conservative campaign with your most generous support of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35 today. With your friendship and support, I know we can build a statewide grassroots network, defeat the Obama-Democrat candidate, and help take back the Senate for Republicans. Thank you.
