Here is a written attestation. Should we interpret it as singular?
It seems to be both preceded and followed by singular you.
[Letterhead:] James Carville
I hear that like me, you are committed to helping ___ ___
accomplish something in North Carolina that, by my count, is about
24 years overdue:
The defeat of ___ ___.
I'm glad to know that y'all are out there fighting the good
fight, because I can't think fo a guy who deserves to be elected to
the United States Senate more than Harvey.
I know that Mr. ___ is grateful for your support. It _is_
folks like you who can make the difference this fall. If ___ is
going to win this election, it will only be if you stand by him
even with the so-called "experts" and the pontificating pundits say
that ___ ___ can't be beat.
And you don't need some bald-headed Cajun guy from Louisiana
to tell you that those experts are just plain wrong this time
