Subject: The Fight for Common Sense Has Begun
Yesterday, I took the fight for common-sense solutions to my opponent in our first joint appearance. While I'll never engage in personal attacks of any sort, I won't hesitate to attack my opponent's record. Her extreme positions are dangerous for Utah.

Last year's government shutdown hurt America’s economy and took a significant toll on families and businesses throughout Utah. More than 40,000 Utahns faced unpaid furloughs, including 75% of Utah National Guard employees. The shutdown cost our state's tourism industry $30 million.
Weeks after the shutdown, my opponent joined other Utahns in showering Mike Lee with more than 10 minutes of applause for his efforts that led to the government shutdown. Not only did my opponent participate in rallying behind Mike Lee, she stood on stage with him and applauded his extreme tactics.
I see the government shutdown as a breakdown, not something to celebrate. Unfortunately,my opponent is driven by a national Tea Party agenda and appears to be less concerned with what's good for Utahns and their families. I'm driven by local concerns and local issues. We can't let Washington insiders and political extremists hand-pick Utah's new representative in Congress. Together, we can be a voice of reason and a voice of action - a voice that is true to Utah!
Utah voters need to know the truth about my opponent's extreme positions. Please support me in fighting for common-sense solutions by making a donation today! Your donation of $50, $100, $500 or $2600 helps me to get the message out that Mia Love and her tea party politics are wrong for Utah.
I cannot win this fight without your support.
