On Friday, Erin Bilbray-Kohn, the liberal Democrat candidate for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, issued a thoroughly desperate email pitch for money in an effort to take her faltering campaign off life-support and somehow at least survive in a comatose state through Election Day.
“Erin is fired up – it’s time to pull out all the stops and win in November!” wrote, well, um, “The team @ Erin Bilbray for Congress HQ” because, well, Bilbray-Kohn’s finance director either fled the sinking ship or was tossed overboard a few days ago and apparently no one else has yet to step up and fill the job.
“Sunday is our last end-of-month deadline before our big media buy and Erin needs to hit her goal to get on air,” The team @ Erin Bilbray for Congress HQ declared, continuing Bilbray-Kohn’s disingenuous practice of not telling her financial supporters exactly what that “goal” is.
“Erin cannot win without you,” The team @ Erin Bilbray for Congress HQ advised. “It’s crucial that we get her message out to every voter in Nevada! It’s go time!”
Actually, for this monumentally embarrassing campaign it was time to go long ago.
