Dear family member of candidate,
I appreciate your email to me. I have no doubt your family member is a fantastic mom.
Yet, on Mother’s Day I’m going to spend the time thinking about my mom in heaven, and giving thanks to my wife and the great mother she is to our daughter. I’ll also give thanks for all the moms who do so much to bless their families.
But, if you believe for a second, as a result of your Mother’s Day Fundraising Plea, that I’m going to stop to think about writing a check to your family member, simply because she’s a candidate for office and a mother, you (and she) may be missing the point of the day.
That aside, a happy Mother’s Day to you and yours.
