THE REPUBLICANS MUST REGAIN MAJORITY
CONTROL IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE
By Trent Lott
Is freeing America from dependence on foreign oil from the unstable Middle East a pressing issue facing America right now?
Should we develop and deploy a missile defense to protect America from nuclear attack?
These are some of the most important debates in our nations's history. Your tax bill, our nation's energy supply, America's economic and national security--all of these pressing topics could be affected for better or worse in the coming months in Congress.
And as we take up these key topics in the U.S. Senate, my fellow Republicans and I must fight the partisan Democrat Senate majority and their Liberal special interests who are determined to block President Bush's White House Agenda.
Here's what is really alarming: The Democrat majority gives power to a dangerous coalition of ultra-Liberal lobbyists, including Big Labor, which is looking to spend $35 million to elect their loyalists to Congress and impose the union bosses' anti-taypayer agenda on you.
To fight the Liberal Democrats' petty partisanship and take back control of the Senate this year, President Bush is depending on my leadership committee, the New Republican Majority Fund, to rally public support behind our Bush/Republican Agenda.
President Bush is counting on us to mobilize a grassroots public campaign to encourage mainstream Congressional Democrats to support our Republican policies.
And President Bush trusts our New Republican Majority Fund to take a leading role in electing Republicans in this year's Congressional elections, so we can take back the Senate and secure Republican majorities he needs as he works to do the job the American people elected him to do.
With your support, the New Republican Majority Fund will start working right now for Republican policies:
These are just a few of the policies targeted for defeat by ultra-Liberal pressure groups and their loyalists in Congress.
And now, the Democrats' majority control of the Senate creates an alarming obstacle to our Bush/Republican Agenda. Even with a Republican president in the White House--even with some mainstream Democrats supporting the President and our pro-taxpayer agenda--extremist Democrats can use Senate filibusters to kill off Republican bills and stop President Bush at every turn as he fights to strengthen our economy and protect our nation.
DON'T FORGET: The Liberal's special interest machine will not be satisfied just blocking the Bush/Republican proposals you support. They're determined to force through their most expensive and destructive Liberal schemes, including:
My New Republican Majority Fund is leading the battle to beat back these dangerous policies and to take back the Senate majority so we can shut down the Leftwing's power grab.
I've divided our strategy in two distinct parts--Shortterm and Longterm.
Now I know many Democrats will always oppose every one of our
But with America united in the war against terror, President
Bush and I believe other, more moderate Democrats will do the
right thing and vote FOR some of our Republican proposals,
especially if our New Republican Majority Fund can prove
widespread support for President Bush's White House
We must elect more pro-taxpayer Republicans to Congress to
secure solid majorities in both the House and Senate.
Many people will say now is not the time to think about
political campaigns and upcoming elections.
The Liberal special interests don't agree. Take Big Labor,
for example. The labor-union boses are plotting a $35 million
crusade to defeat principled Conservative Republicans across
America and give anti-taxpayer labor lobbyists total control
MAKE NO MISTAKE: It is our duty as patriotic Americans to keep our constitutional democracy thriving. And it is our most urgent responsibility as taxpayers to give President Bush more Congressional support for his White House Agenda, especially with the terrifying challenges we face this year.
First, we must take back the U.S. Senate. That means defending 19 Republican incumbent seats and gaining at least one more seat by winning an open seat or defeating a Democrat incumbent. We must also defend and strengthen our U.S. House majority--in a year when pollsters and media pundits are already predicting Republican losses in the midterm elections.
All this in the face of extreme Liberal interest groups determined to maintain their lock on the Senate and the enormous power that gives them.
We must protect your pocketbook, America's energy supply, our Supreme Court, and our national security from such an alarming threat.
