GOP Seeks Donations to Get Bush Plans 'Past the Liberal Media'
"(AP) The Republican Party is following up record fund raising for President Bush's re-election effort by asking donors to finance its efforts to get Bush's message 'past the liberal media filter' to the public.
Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman sent a fund-raising e-mail today telling supporters donations are needed to help Bush advance his second-term agenda.
'The president has great goals for our country: a growing economy, strong homeland and national defense, tort and Social Security reform and affordable health care. But we need your help to get the president's message past the liberal media filter and directly to the American people,' wrote Mehlman, Bush's 2004 campaign manager. Mehlman asked donors to give $25 or more."
