Sarah Palin's dad wrote a letter backing little Tark and the campaign sent out an email with a picture of the entire Palin clan (alas, no Levi) and a pitch to contribute. Here's Chuck Heath's letter to Nevadans:
FROM THE DESK OF CHUCK HEATH
My family and I would like to thank all of you who welcomed us to your beautiful state and made us feel so at home. Everywhere we went, from Las Vegas, to Reno, to the smaller towns in between, the people there made us feel like family.
It was such a pleasure to be able to travel with Danny Tarkanian and address issues that are not only affecting your state, but the entire nation as well. Danny will be a much needed breath of fresh air for Nevada. He is a very intelligent, well-spoken family man who is full of energy and ready to dedicate his life to improving the quality of life of all Nevadans. This is a stark contrast to what Harry Reid brings to the table. As outsiders, it's clear to our family that Reid has become so wrapped up in the upper echelon of DC politics that he's forgotten about the people who put him into office in the first place.
You're going to get the opposite of that with Danny Tarkanian. The people of Nevada deserve a senator who is 100% dedicated to work in their best interests. Our nation deserves it as well. This country is on a path to catastrophic debt and increased government control in our lives. You have the opportunity to help right this ship by electing Danny Tarkanian to the U.S. senate.
I would urge all Nevadans who are ready for a change to throw your support behind Danny. Please visit his website, make a financial contribution, or volunteer to do whatever you can to help him. This a crucial election Nevada. Our family knows that and it's the reason we're supporting our friend Danny. So please don't stand on the sideline and let this slip by. Jump in the game. If Danny wins this, the people of Nevada, and this country, win as well.
Thank you for your time,
P.S. Please join me in supporting Danny Tarkanian by visiting Tark2010.org and making a financial contribution.
