I have been pushing pretty hard to win this November. Not for Obama. I am sure Obama will win (well...about 90% sure and I have been for some 6 months now). It is Congress I am worried about.
We are at risk of losing the Senate and we really need to gain in the House. I think we can do both...MAYBE even take the House if we push really, really hard.
So I have been pushing with 3 Act Blue Pages to try and win key races that are looking close. If we want to dominated Congress anytime soon, these are the races we need to win. Follow me below the fold for more...but first, I also have a suggestion for those who are feeling the Democrats aren't Progressive enough. If you can't bring yourself to stand by Obama, don't write a diary about a third party candidate (it will only end in tears!). Instead put some time/money/effort into helping the Progressive Majority endorsed candidates. They are a fantastic bunch and Progressive Majority is one of our most important organizations getting Progressives elected to important positions in local and state government. They are our future.
But looking at Congress, please help me with these three efforts...I am doing better than usual in my fundraising efforts and would like to seriously compete with the Koch Brothers in fundraising ("To Dream...the Impossible Dream..."). read more »
Bumped - Bouldin.
In NY-13, Vito Fossella's district, a competitive Democratic primary is in the works.
On one side, you have a candidate named Mike McMahon. Who is Mike McMahon?
"He’s not as conservative as Powers, but he definitely appeals to us on some of the issues. He appeals to us on his opposition to gay marriage, and he told us he continues to support U.S. action in Iraq." - Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kasser
On the other side, we have Steve Harrison, a co-author of "The Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq.".
Guess which one the DCCC endorsed?
Once again, the DCCC has stuck its hands in a primary, supporting the Bush Democrat before the people even had a chance to decide for themselves what they wanted.
We, the people, must stand behind the progressive Democrat who is for HR 676, safe renewable energy, and for the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. read more »
