Possible Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb is asking supporters to "invest in leadership you can trust." That's the subject line of Webb's latest fundraising pitch.
"We hope you had the opportunity to read Jim’s recent email request for financial support as he pursues a potential presidential campaign. Jim is continuing his effort despite the unfortunate reality of today’s political system which is becoming more and more controlled by big money interests. We are never going to raise the billions of dollars that the so-called 'first tier' candidates are expecting in the run-up to the 2016 election, but for us, the strong response to Jim’s recent email renewed his determination to keep fighting for economic fairness at home and a sensible foreign policy abroad," Webb's team writes in an email.
"Jim will be in Iowa this week, as always talking directly to people in unscripted meetings and answering their questions in a forthright and honest manner.
"Your contributions, of whatever amount you are able to make from $20 or $30 up to the $2,700 limit, are a morale boost to Jim as he works to focus our political system on a fair, common-sense approach to governing, and are helping us keep him on the road in the crucial early-battleground states."
Webb doesn't use Hillary Clinton's name once, but it's clear who he's targeting. The subject line of the email reads, "Invest in Leadership you can Trust."
