The West Virginia Republican Party is looking for people to contribute to campaigns against government waste and federal cap and trade legislation.
In an e-mail sent to party members Friday, officials said money is needed because West Virginia is at a critical moment in its history.
The e-mail lists several contribution levels for prospective donors, ranging from $27 for a roll of postcard stamps to $471 to print and mail 1,000 postcards on controlling government waste.
Donors also can give money to finance automated telephone calls to state residents on subjects dealing with cap and trade and health care.
The GOP recently hired a new executive director in a move to resolve its finances and to improve its standing with state voters.
