Among Blue America pages you will find actions dedicated to specific endeavors, like defeating Blue Dogs, rewarding members of Congress who have been fighting for meaningful health care or for ending the disastrous occupation of Afghanistan. There is even a page dedicated specifically to giving props to progressive hero Alan Grayson and one dedicated to the best challengers running for the U.S. Senate this year. I'm kind of partial to the one that Digby came up with to send a message to the Inside the Beltway Establishment by supporting BETTER Democrats, the non-corporate kind.
Blue America is a Netroots based political action committee devoted to supporting congressional candidates who are committed to progressive policies. We ask people from across the country and the world to contribute to campaigns far from their own local districts out of a shared belief that America needs a strong national movement comprised of activists, citizens and elected officials who care for the common good.
Blue America does not try to dictate policy agendas or political strategy to the campaigns it supports. Local concerns and practical considerations always make each race unique. Progressive values, like equality under the law for example, are not principles we expect to see compromised.
The 2010 cycle will be the third for Blue America. In 2006 and 2008 we helped elect such outstanding members of Congress as Donna Edwards (D-MD), Alan Grayson (D-FL), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Bruce Braley (D-IA), Joe Sestak (D-PA), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), Larry Kissell (D-NC), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Gary Peters (D-MI), Mark Schauer (D-MI), John Hall (D-NY), Jim Himes (D-CT), Eric Massa (D-NY), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Jared Polis (D-CO), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Tom Perriello (D-VA) and several others. Please keep reading Blue America's constituent blogs, Crooks and Liars, FireDogLake, Digby's Hullabaloo and DownWithTyranny to learn about our endorsements and to suggest your own favorite candidates for consideration.
