Make Sure Progressives Win!

Once again, you’re turning heads in Washington.

The headline from the insider D.C. magazine Hotline: On Call this week proclaimed “Progressive Groups Coming To Feingold’s Rescue.” The Wall Street Journal article about it pointed out we’re not just raising money, we’re making phone calls to recruit volunteers and putting staff on the ground to get out the vote. But that’s not what’s making news.

“Some said raising money for Feingold has proven far easier than doing so for other Democrats … Feingold, an outspoken critic of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the anti-terrorism policies of the Bush and Obama administrations, is a hero for liberals across the country.”
We’ve been saying it for months and it’s just starting to sink in. There isn’t an enthusiasm gap for Progressives Heroes who stand up and deliver like Russ Feingold and Barbara Boxer.

The fact is, Democracy for America is supporting over 100 campaigns with staff, volunteers, fund raising, and Get-Out-The-Vote trainings. If just half of the 23 progressive candidates we’ve endorsed for House of Representatives win, the House keeps a Democratic majority. Congresswoman Pelosi remains Speaker of the House and the winning progressive campaigns will provide the difference between victory and defeat in 2010. The same will be said when our Senate progressives win, but we have to deliver right now to make it happen.

Make sure progressives win in November and Democrats keep the majority!

We’ve placed Dean Corps staff and field organizers on the ground in 10 of the most important races around the country from Senator Feingold in Wisconsin to Grassroots All-Star Beth Krom in California.

We’ve partnered with our friends at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and opened a full-time campaign call center hiring 20 more campaigners to identify supporters and get out the vote for campaigns like Progressive Heroes Alan Grayson in Florida and Raul Grijalva in Arizona.

We’re mobilizing thousands of hours of volunteer time, tens of thousands of volunteer phone calls, and almost a million dollars in direct contributions to progressive campaigns like Annie Kuster in New Hampshire and Joe Garcia is Florida.

The media had it wrong, there’s never been an enthusiasm gap when it comes to defending and electing progressive leaders. Let’s prove it again and take DFA’s progressive Get-Out-The-Vote program to over the top.

We’re not working to save the worst corporate Democrats from defeat this November, we’re working to lead progressives to victory and move America forward with a more progressive Democratic majority.

As Alan Grayson said at DFA’s Day of Action online rally yesterday, we can’t let our children grow up in a country with Sarah Palin as President. Because winning isn’t about the progressive candidates we’re supporting, it’s about what these candidates are fighting for. It’s about the America we want to be and the future we want for our children.

Working together, we’re going to make victory happen. Thank you for everything you do.
