Fox Caves

Our hard work paid off: Fox News finally caved and admitted to viewers that its parent company is funding the Republican Governors Association’s efforts to defeat Democrats!

During Tuesday morning’s “fair and balanced” broadcast covering gerrymandering tactics and an extended clip of Gov. Haley Barbour (RGA Chair) bragging about Republican prospects this November, a Fox anchor stated:

“By way of full disclosure, News Corp., parent company of this network, has contributed one million dollars to the Republican Governors Association.”

We put the pressure on Fox and friends and won this battle — thanks to your tireless support.

But that doesn’t change the fact that the RGA is $1 million richer. And even though News Corp. owner Rupert Murdoch flat-out admitted the donation was his way of helping Republicans unseat Ohio’s Democratic governor, we can’t count on Fox News continuing to publicly disclose its funding for the GOP.

Help the Democratic Governors Association keep the pressure on Fox. Contribute $5 today!

Did you know that News Corp. donated another million bucks to a powerful lobbying group that’s already spent nearly $7 million for Republicans this cycle?

So what does this mean for us? We have to keep fighting. In fact, with less than a month until these critical elections, we must fight harder than ever.

Donate $5 today. Help give us the resources to keep the pressure on the Republicans and defend Democrats from the millions of dollars in special-interest attacks they’re facing in these final days.

And it’s not just cash that Fox and friends are throwing at these races.

For weeks, Glenn Beck has run his Fox show as a GOP Get-Out-The-Vote operation, using every fear tactic he can dream up to terrify the Far Right into action. He’s even claiming that progressives “buy in to socialism and Marxism and communism” and want to turn the U.S. “into a Third World country.”

This victory over Fox matters, but not if we can’t keep the fight alive all the way through Election Day… Not if we allow the Republicans to take over our statehouses and, ultimately, Congress itself… Not if we let the GOP steer America back in the wrong direction after so much progress.

Your $5 will keep us fighting the GOP and its allies at Fox News around the clock, so donate today!

With pride and determination,

Nathan Daschle
Executive Director
Democratic Governors Association

P.S. After we put the pressure on Fox News to own up to their alliance with the Republicans, they caved and finally broadcast the truth. But they donated another $1 million to one of the biggest Republican-funding groups this cycle. Meanwhile, they have Glenn Beck working his viewers into a fear-fueled voting surge… We need your help to win this battle against the Republicans and their Fox allies today!

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.

-Charles
