  1. From Donald Trump’s candidate mailing list. I receive mailings from his campaign:

    Dear Theodore, (Ted),

    We had so many great wins last night! I am very proud to receive your support because without you this wouldn’t have been possible.

    These past few weeks have been a truly amazing experience. We met so many incredible people. I am just a messenger and it is clear that our voices are being heard! We will no longer stand for the incompetence and corrupt political system that has failed hard working American’s for far too long.

    I am self-funding my campaign and I am going to do what is right for the people – not the special interests, donors and lobbyists – that control our all talk, no action politicians.

    I look forward to meeting more of you over the next few months and discussing the issues most important to voters like you including illegal immigration, tax reform, protecting your second amendment rights and national security, among others.

    Thank you for your continued support. Together we will Make America Great Again!

    Best Wishes,

    Donald J. Trump
