Jim Abeler for US Senate


October 13, 2014

Hello Friends.

Thanks so much for your support of my US Senate campaign. While we fell short on August 12, I am amazed at the numbers of people who helped out and even thanked me for running. It is like they drew some kind of encouragement from my candidacy. That was most humbling, and shows the hunger people have for a candidate they can trust.

As the dust has settled, we discovered that we have debt remaining. $12,342.00 to be exact. While we made every effort to live within our means, my own error was to believe that when a person told me they would donate $500, they actually meant it. Between a surprising number of those instances and late-breaking expenses, we find ourselves needing to ask for help.

Frankly, I'm a bit shy to ask again, but have been advised by a number of people that it's OK and necessary. So again, here we are asking.

Please give as you feel led. It is all helpful. Whether it is one of those missing $500 donations or a lesser number, it's all good.

For those who gave the maximum $2600 per person, and there were a few of you, thanks. You cannot make any additional donations to this campaign personally, but you can encourage a friend or two to donate. Thanks to you more than I can express.

Either donate online or mail to: Abeler For Senate, 600 East Main St., Anoka, MN 55303.

The race was truly an amazing experience, and somehow I feel it's not all over for what impact it will have. Please consider praying that I am guided in my next steps as I still want to make a difference.

It is time for a new adventure. Can't wait to see what it is.

Blessings to you and yours.

Jim Abeler
