Please help me pay off my campaign debt

Dear Supporters:

Throughout my political career, both in the Florida legislature and in Washington, I have been recognized as a fighter on behalf of my constituents.  And my campaign slogan, “Corrine Delivers” remains the most apt description of my style of public service, as I have brought hundreds of millions of federal dollars back to communities throughout my District and the State of Florida.

I’ve brought thousands of jobs to the District, holding yearly job fairs and small and disadvantaged business programs, supporting Job Corps and other training programs, and advocating for job creators like CSX Railroad, Florida Rock, and the Cecil Commerce Center.  

I’ve used my seniority on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee to increase Florida’s transportation funding from 77 cents to 95 cents, authorized the JAXPORT dredging project and the Mile Point navigational hazard repair, earmarked millions of dollars for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) and the Jacksonville International Airport, and secured funding to restore passenger rail to the Gulf Coast, including a stop in Jacksonville.

Sadly, the Department of Justice has smeared my good name, and in the process has significantly hindered my ability to raise campaign funds.  During the battle for my Congressional seat I incurred considerable debt that still needs to be paid off.  

I am proud of the work I have done on behalf of my District, and I am asking for your help by making a contribution to my campaign account, allowing me to pay off these final debts.  Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.  Contributions can be made online at “” or mailed to “Friends of Corrine Brown”, PO Box 40087, Jacksonville, FL 32203.

Thank you for your support and assistance.

Words of thanks


God is good.

All the time!

All of us prayed for an election victory on Tuesday. Just because we didn’t get what we wanted doesn’t mean He didn’t hear us. It just means He didn’t give us the answer we wanted to hear.

I still believe God is good.

All the time!

We have to trust His will and His wisdom.

I must thank all of my supporters for your prayers and good wishes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of my heart -- thank you.

We fought a battle with one arm tied behind our backs. You know they’ve been after me for years. Tuesday they won a battle.

We are a strong people. We’re descendants of people who survived the Middle Passage. We have survived centuries of abuse. We are strong. We are still standing.

Tuesday was a setback, not a defeat.

I’ve been so blessed to have served this community for 24 years in Congress.

I’ve done my best to make our community better for children, families and working people both here and around the country.

I congratulate Al Lawson. I hope he appreciates the trust the community has given him. I hope that he will focus on serving the needs of the people and not the big campaign contributors. I hope that he will build on my record of success and service.

Thank you so much. God bless each and every one of you.

Al Lawson Knock! Knock! joke

Knock! Knock!

Who’s there?

Al "DINO" Lawson

Al who?

Al Lawson. I’m running for U.S. Congress.

Are you a Democrat, or a Republican?

I’m registered as a Democrat but I play footsie with Republicans. The Republicans like me, that’s why buddies of Donald Trump, Gov. Rick Scott and Big Sugar contributed to my political campaign.

So you’re a Democrat in Name Only (DINO)?

Yeah, I guess you could say that.

I’m not going to waste my vote on a wimpy DINO because I support Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a REAL Democrat who has been working to improve the lives of North Florida families for 3 decades. Now, get out of my yard!
