Dear Lucas,

I'm sure you know that in the race for U.S. Senate in Delaware, the Republican candidate is Christine "I am not a witch" O'Donnell.

What you may not know is that the Democratic candidate, Chris Coons, is an extraordinarily capable, bright and good-hearted person.  He will be of great value to the country in the Senate, especially in these challenging times.

Please help Chris cross the finish line on Tuesday with a contribution to his campaign: Click here to contribute.

I have known Chris for more than 20 years, since we were both students at Yale Law School.  Then as now, he was whip-smart, thoughtful and wholly earnest.  He had a successful career as an attorney for a manufacturing company in Delaware before being elected as County Executive in New Castle, Delaware.  To learn more about Chris, visit his website .

When I was in the City Council, Chris and I both participated in a Democratic Leadership Council fellowship program for emerging Democratic leaders committed to centrist, pro-growth policies.  That's what Chris stands for.

And it's not just talk.  As County Leader, Chris "walked the walk."  He cut millions in wasteful spending, lowered the crime rate in his county, and  brought fresh, innovative thinking to county government.

I spoke to Chris this weekend.  He's ahead in the polls, but the Tea Party is planning a massive election day effort for Christine O'Donnell, one of their marquis candidates.

Please join me in making sure Chris Coons has the support he needs to win on Tuesday.  Click here to contribute.

Thank you.

All the best,

David Yassky
