There are two months and one day between today and Election Day.

You're sitting at your desk at work or at home, about to leave to pick up the kids from school. You might not have time to go out and put up signs and knock on doors, but you can make a difference.

That's the whole mission of Rightroots-- to make making a difference easy for you.

Today we're starting a new push. We want to get 100 new donations for each candidate on our list in the next 15 days. It's a high goal, but we raised almost $50,000 for candidates in the first month of this new project, so we know conservatives are ready to step up to the plate to help out these Republican candidates.

We've added three candidates to our list-- Mike Bouchard for Senate in MI, Andrea Lane Zinga for Congress in IL, and Ralph Norman for Congress in SC.

If you've been reading Bob Novak here on Townhall, you know there are some pretty dire predictions about how Republicans may fare in November. It really is in your hands to make a difference. A very small amount of money can make a big difference in a tight House race. A very small amount of money can make the difference between Speaker Hastert and Speaker Pelosi. Yikes.

So, if you've been thinking you can only afford $25 or $30 or $50 and haven't given, throw in now to help us meet our goal. A lot of small donations can be a really big deal.

All the candidates are in one place. Pick a couple and make a difference from right there in front of your computer in between picking up the kids, going back to work, and living your busy life. I wanna see what Townhall readers can do! Go on over and make that total move. I promise you, it will matter. Thanks!
