Today Prime Minister Kevin Rudd sent this email to our supporters moments after he left Government House. If you missed it sign up to our list here.

Tony Abbott has a different approach. He’ll bang on with the same negativity that we’re all sick of. He’s only got three word slogans because he doesn’t have the ticker to debate his real agenda.
Right now the only thing standing between Australia and an Abbott-led government is you, me, and as many Australians as we can rally to fight for the kind of nation we all want to live in.
We’ve got one hell of a fight on our hands. Abbott and a few millionaires will out-spend us. But if we join together we can even the playing field. Chip in $5 to get us off to a strong start:
It’s time to rally the troops.
