Greeley, Colorado, Tuesday, March 30, 2004
GREELEY - Friends: Exciting things are happening in Colorado. Earlier this
month, Colorado's US Senator Ben "Nighthorse" Campbell announced he will
not seek re-election. Two weeks ago, I announced my intention to run for
the seat he is vacating. So far, the effort is developing very well. My
campaign enjoys the early backing of Colorado's other senator Wayne Allard
and many of his colleagues in the US Senate.

Former Senators Hank Brown and Bill Armstrong are on the campaign team,
too, and so are other members of Colorado's Congressional delegation, many
of their colleagues in the US House of Representatives, State Treasurer Mike
Coffman, both Majority Leaders of the State Legislature, their colleagues
and other key state and local leaders.
Colorado is crucial in determining the balance of power in the US Senate and
both parties will be concentrating efforts here in November. As you know,
my service in the US House spanned three terms and allowed me to participate
in many successes including balancing the nation's budget, providing
American families with overdue tax relief, improving education policy,
restoring America's national defense and promoting a pro-democracy foreign
policy. I will draw upon these experiences in mounting a winning campaign
for the US Senate.
I also need your immediate help. Please do two things for me:
1) Please visit the Schaffer for Senate website at
www.schafferforsenate.com right now and contribute to the campaign online.
The cost of an important campaign like this one is in the millions. I need
to raise a lot of money and I need to do it right away.
In fact, the first federal reporting deadline is tomorrow March 31st - just
16 days since I launched the campaign. Please date a check on or before the
31st and mail it in right away -- or you can contribute by credit card at
2) Secondly, please compose and send emails to anyone you know who can
join and contribute. Other important information about the Colorado race
can be found at the web site, too.
Your personal support for our efforts is essential. I intend to run a
smart, vigorous and winning campaign. With your help, we can mount a
thrilling victory of which we can all be proud.
Very truly yours,
NOTE: Bob Schaffer served as co-chairman of the Ukrainian Congressional
Caucus Committee when he served as a Congressman from Colorado.
