Ballot fund update & Lucas Overby

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last Friday I asked for your help in raising $45,000 in 45 days.

We're off to a slow start, but I'd like to thank the 46 donors who contributed a total of $2,821.

Please contribute today. $100 would make a big difference, but you can donate as little as $5. Every bit helps.

Separately, I'm pleased to announce that, with some help from us, Lucas Overby raised enough to pay the filing fee to run in the special election for U.S. Congress in Florida.
