Just got an email from the Brown campaign. I guess this is what will have to pass for reaching out (full email after the break):

I’m proud to serve as your candidate for the U.S. Senate against Republican Mike DeWine. We’ve been though many campaigns over the years, but this is our greatest challenge and greatest opportunity to effect change in Ohio. I’m confident that with your help we will win this race and bring hope back to working families.

I, for one, am not proud of how you got there – but congratulations!

This is the only thing that even comes close to reaching out:

This is one election where no one should stand on the sidelines.

That’s it? Wow. Well color me underwhelmed. This campaign has lost the Ohio netroots and will continue to with this kind of “get the hell on board” message. Earth to Sherrod: We want to back you man, but you have made it so painfully hard to – and it doesn’t appear you are willing to work any harder at it. Win a primary and then we’d be all in it together…as for right now…I’m still hangin’ out on the sidelines checkin’ it all out. Worst part about it is that I genuinely like your policies and your record of fighting for us – really I do. But what I need from you is a big fat “hey sorry, forgive me and let’s get DeWine”…how ’bout one of those buddy?

Dear eric@plunderbund.com,

I’m confident that with your help we will win this race and bring hope back to working families.

We are touring the state speaking out on issues that Ohioans care about most: trade, health care, education, the war in Iraq and the environment.
