I'm trying to run a different kind of campaign. I'm calling on us to renew our faith in each other as neighbors. I'm listening to America, not to the pundits. I'm raising money from ordinary citizens, not from special interest PAC's. And I'm hoping that by election day, we'll be choosing between two people we esteem, not the candidate we can still tolerate.
