This is the last time we're expecting to ask our members to contribute for the 2014 midterms. So if you've been waiting... now's the time.
Thanks to Howie Klein of Blue America PAC, you have a chance to win a Jimi Hendrix Platinum Album Award, for the album “Are You Experienced?” Read the attached to put this in context, so you recognize just how mind-boggling this opportunity is. PS: Here’s some friendly advice from Alan Grayson himself: "Don’t blow it."
Is it worth $10.10 to you to help elect tribunes of the people like Rick Weiland and Shenna Bellows? Take my word for it, Bernie Sanders, Alan Grayson and Elizabeth Warren can't do it by themselves. We need lots more like them.
For the rest of this week, you are likely to be bombarded with hysterical, desperate spam from the DCCC, DSCC and their myriad candidates. So we're not going to send any more e-mails out 'til after that circus is over.
Instead, we're offering to send a $1,000 check from our PAC to whichever House candidate our members prefer. You tell us who.
Blue America endorsed Stanley Chang because he's quite literally a progressive dream candidate. This district is deep blue; whoever wins the primary will be going to Congress. Let's make sure it's someone who shares our progressive values. You can contribute to Stanley's campaign here: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/blueamerica14?refcode=BACnL
One of the dirty little secrets of Congress is that many of them legislate in areas in which they are utterly bereft of knowledge. If ignorance is bliss, then some of the Members must be deliriously happy. (No wonder Sen. Ted Cruz is always smiling!)
Shenna Bellows is going to be just as astounding a U.S. Senator as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. Let the DSCC waste their time and resources on anti-Choice, anti-equality, antigay, anti-environment, pro-NRA goons like Travis Childers. Let's do absolutely everything we can to elect a real progressive fighter.
