Blue America's Alan Grayson Wins Florida Primary

Congratulations, Alan! Great news from a great progressive candidate.

Down With Tyranny:

(Tuesday) Florida had its congressional primaries and with about 93% of the vote counted it's looking like Donna Edwards may soon have a strong progressive with a reform-minded agenda working with her in Congress. (Oh, there's still the general election in November... but Keller barely managed to hold onto his party's nomination against Todd Long who's getting 47% of the Republican vote.) AP has called the race for Grayson but says it's too close to call on the GOP side. [..]

Which ad do you think will be most effective in the general election?

or this?

Take Back America with a Responsible Plan For Iraq

Our current Congress isn't doing it. But progressive activists aren't taking that lying down. At the Take Back America conference currently going on in Washington DC, we have asked an initial 10 progressive congressional challengers to sign on to our Responsible Plan for Iraq. The plan, which calls for no residual troops and a diplomatic "surge", will be announced formally here at the Take Back America conference in DC at 5:30 Eastern today. Brig. Gen. John Johns has also made a video supporting a Responsible Plan.

Darcy Burner (WA-08) (you can watch the streaming video of the announcement at 5:30 pm Eastern on her site)

Jared Polis (CO-02)

Donna Edwards (MD-04)

Eric Massa (NY-29)

Chellie Pingree (ME-01)

Tom Perriello (VA-05)

George Fearing (WA-04)

Larry Byrnes (FL-14)

Steve Harrison (NY-13)

Sam Bennett (PA-15)

We'll be adding more as we near the election. These are candidates that have promised us that they WILL work to end our occupation of Iraq and to support a progressive agenda.

Please reward these challengers at our Blue America page for support. This is our chance to create our "Contract For America" but this time, actually make things better here.
