With less than three weeks to go, I am going to make a pledge: From here on out, I promise to match, dollar for dollar, every contribution made online to our campaign through the primary. You've put this campaign on your back from day one, help carry us over the finish line today.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. Lamont was going to funnel more personal funds into his campaign anyway right? Matching funds isn't an uncommon way to raise money, but I've never seen it in politics. Has any other self-financed or partially self-financed candidate ever done this?
