A little 2014 plea from Hick and Joe

An interesting email popped into one of EdNews’ inboxes the other day.

Signed by Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia and topped by the blue Hickenlooper for Colorado 2010 campaign logo, the email touts the signing of the ASSET bill making undocumented students eligible for resident tuition rates.

The email is one of the first stirrings of a re-election campaign and seems to indicate that Hickenlooper and Garcia plan to tout the enactment of the ASSET bill, which passed after more than a decade of attempts, as a way to mobilize voters. It concludes with this paragraph from Garcia:

“I am honored to have played a role in this effort and proud of what it will contribute to Colorado’s future, and let’s face it—we wouldn’t be here without your support. But we have more work to do, and we’d like to have four more years to do it. Can you show your support by donating $250, $100 or $50 to keep our team going strong?”
