Labour puts hard word on donors over cam­paign cash

The Dominion Post - - Politics -

Labour is reach­ing into the United States pres­i­den­tial play book, putting the hard word on sup­port­ers to stump up cash and even threat­en­ing to wind back the elec­tion cam­paign if they do not dig deep for the party. On Tues­day, in an emailed plea to sup­port­ers for funds, cam­paign man­ager An­drew Kir­ton said the party had to raise an­other $9179 to reach its March tar­get. ‘‘If we don’t reach our tar­get, I’ll have to make some tough calls over the week­end and work out what we scale back,’’ he said.
