ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Claiming Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for the White House, New York’s GOP chairman has kicked off a national “STOP HILLARY NOW!” fund-raising effort to thwart her 2006 Senate re-election bid.
“Stopping Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most important thing you and I can do as Republicans in the next two years,” says the fund-raising appeal sent out by Stephen Minarik. “You could say it’s our duty as Republicans.”
Minarik’s fund-raising letter, dated Friday, promises a Republican “truth squad” that will “monitor Hillary’s appearances and expose her lies.”
While Minarik has sent out similar missives to New York Republicans, Friday’s appeal – a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press – is his first to the potentially more lucrative national anti-Clinton audience.
