For immediate release:

With a major campaign finance deadline quickly approaching, Mark Pera for Congress received some terrific news.

Less than two weeks ago, we asked contributors to help us raise $20,000 by September 30 by sending $30 to Mark Pera for Congress via Act Blue. Some people told us it couldn't be done, but, thanks to hundreds of supporters, earlier today we exceeded our goal. And the contributions are still coming in.

Because we have two days left before we file our quarterly report with the Federal Election Commission, we've decided to set a new goal for the $30 by September 30 campaign -$30,000 by September 30.

We think we can do it. We hope more folks decide to help us by visiting Act Blue and delivering a $30 contribution - or even bigger - contribution.

Supporters asked for it and it's now up live on www.PERA08.com under the "Blogger" tab - a short video of Mark talking about the issues that compelled him to run for Congress.

We put the piece together so you can get to know a little more of what Mark and our campaign is all about, so please take a look and let us know what other kind of videos you'd like to see from Mark.

Last, but surely not least, Mark was endorsed today by NARAL Pro-Choice America.

For those of you who don't know, Mark's opponent - Congressman Dan Lipinski - has an atrocious voting record on issues involving reproductive rights. He is opposed to a woman's right to choose even in instances involving rape or incest. Mark is pro-choice.

In 2006, Congressman Dan Lipinski has received a 0 - that's ZERO - rating from NARAL!

We are so pleased to have NARAL's support.

So let's make some more "good news" before September 30. Please visit www.PERA08.com and check out Mark's video and keep following this exciting campaign.

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or inquiries.
