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.
Shenna Bellows, probably the one person most responsible for bringing Equal Marriage to Maine was ignored by the Human Rights Campaign this week when they laughably endorsed Republican "bucket of lukewarm water," Senator Susan Collins. The left was outraged but, who is going to do something about it? We hope you.
Blue America was one of the first groups outside of Massachusetts to endorse and start raising small contributions for Elizabeth Warren. She kept up with Brown and she beat him and in the end she won 56% of the votes. She's a beacon of inspiration for us today. And she very much reminds me of another woman from New England, Maine's Shenna Bellows, taking on a popular Republican incumbent.
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.
Digby, John and Howie did not expect to send this note out today. They planned a sabbatical until after the first quarter rush was over Tuesday. But… we got an offer we couldn't refuse-- and one I hope you won't be able to either.
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.
