Los Angeles, CA – July 16, 2010 – Purveyor of State rights and Constitution defender Gubernatorial Candidate Chelene Nightingale launches Money Bomb in a coalition with Money Bomb founder, James Sugra Friday, July 23, 2010.
A lifelong republican, staunch constitutionalist and community organizer, Chelene Nightingale was recruited by American Independent Party leaders to run for Governor of California. After years of advocating for Constitutional candidates, she had been called to action and was dispatched as the icon for the California Revolution.
“I am one of you. I am not a politician. I am We The People,” Nightingale declared at her announcement for candidacy. “I am just the spokesperson. This is our campaign. If you don’t think we can win, guess again.”
Over the next year, Chelene rallied a statewide movement underpinned by hundreds of thousands of grassroots Patriots for the first explosive rebellion against state spending, the cost of illegal immigration, and Federal Government-induced drought in California’s Central Valley.
In June of 2010, the Nightingale campaign enlisted as its operations director James Sugra, creator of the record-breaking November 5th mass donation - brainchild of the Ron Paul Money Bomb of 2007. Sugra’
Sugra’s inspiration united 40,000 Americans to amass 4.3 million dollars in a single day, an achievement that produced the most funds raised online in a 24 hour period for any political candidate in US History and more money than any Republican candidate had ever raised in one day via traditional means and online donations combined.
On the heels of its promising staff addition, Nightingale for Governor is launching its first Money Bomb aimed at July 23, 2010. A promotional video for the event features a motivating rock euphony entitled, “Stand Up” by Jeremy Dodge and includes clips from Chelene’s recent border tour and Tea Party speeches.
The July 23rd Money Bomb marks the one year anniversary of the slaying of California Border Patrol Agent, Robert Rosas, who was murdered while protecting the California border.
Chelene Nightingale recently visited the California border for the Agent Rosas Tree Planting Tribute Ceremony. “Although our current administration assures us our borders are secure, if this was true, Agent Rosas would still be alive today and over 80 miles of Arizona would not be drug cartel territory today. We The People must demand our government protect us from a dangerous illegal insurgency,”
Gary Odom is the national field director of the Constitution Party. “We truly believe that Chelene Nightingale can win and urge every voter in California to join this great ‘We the People’ Revolution at the ballot box in 2010,” said Odom, who was the chairman of the California American Independent Party in 1988.
Chelene Nightingale will be printed on the November ballot as a candidate for California governor. Registered voters from all parties are able to cast their vote for Chelene on Election Day.
The July 23rd Money Bomb is the first official statewide volunteer effort. Supporters are encouraged to find their regional Meetup group at www.meetup.com and attend their local Money Bomb party. A conference call will be scheduled allowing all supporters to hear the Nightingale Campaign’s vision on a path to declare victory in November.
