July 26, 2011 EMAIL from Bachmann for President

Dear Friend,
We're getting closer.
On August 13th, thousands of Iowans like you will gather for the historic Ames Straw Poll. You know how important it is for candidates to have a strong showing. It's a time when the nation looks to Iowa to see who you think may be best suited to represent Republicans in the 2012 presidential election.
Many have made it clear: America needs a leader willing to take on President Barack Obama and his failed policies in this election. I am prepared to do just that.
Now I'm asking you to do the same.
Will you commit today to stand with me at the Ames Straw Poll? Click here to RSVP. It will just take a minute, and you'll be one step closer to taking a stand for constitutional conservative values next month. Upon RSVPing, you'll receive a registration pass and all the details you need. We will provide you with a free ticket, food and entertainment for you and your family.
If you'd like to stand by me at this important event but don't have a way to get there, simply indicate that you'll need a ride when you RSVP. Or if you're might be able to drive another member of Team Bachmann to the Ames Straw Poll, please indicate that when you RSVP.
The response I've received from my constitutional conservative allies in Iowa has been overwhelmingly positive. I'm looking forward to hearing from you, too. Thank you once again for your time -- and your dedication to the principles that have made this country great. I hope you'll join me in Ames on Saturday, August 13th.
I'm looking forward to meeting you there, if not sooner.
Michele Bachmann
PS: You and I know that it will take hard work to protect our shared constitutional conservative values -- and I need your help to keep pushing for what's right. I hope to see you in Ames on August 13th.
