Charlie Crist reaches goal of raising $100K in 10 days since announcing Independent run

From Charlie Crist’s campaign:

I am very happy to report that we have not only met but exceeded our goal of raising 100k by 10 May! First and foremost, I want to thank you for making this possible.  Our success in meeting this challenge is reflective of the broad support for our central message that politics as usual in Washington is no longer acceptable.

This campaign is not about one person nor one political party or the other.  This campaign is about giving people a clear independent voice. It’s about ending the gridlock in Washington that has prevented real progress and real solutions.  I’ve always served with a servant’s heart and done what I felt was best for all of Florida.  Public service is about commonsense problem solving, not about dictating radical ideology.

This campaign has witnessed an incredible outpouring of support over the past two weeks.  To ultimately be successful in November we must continue to reach out, build our network, and spread our message to others.   I know that with your continued help we will be successful!
