Final Day of the Fundraising Quarter – Can You Be Number 50 for Joe Sestak?

{First, a cheap plug for my blog Senate Guru.}

I just wanted to remind everyone that today (Wednesday) is the final day of the first fundraising quarter of 2010.  The fundraising totals reported by federal candidates will help determine their relative strength as we head toward Election Day 2010.

Please contribute as generously as you can today.

For instance, you can contribute to Joe Sestak’s campaign for U.S. Senate via my Expand the Map! ActBlue page.  On it, Joe has 49 contributions.  Can you be contribution number 50?

(Remember: every contribution you make to Joe via the Expand the Map! ActBlue page is not only a show of support for Joe but an investment toward recent Republican Arlen Specter’s long overdue retirement!)

Fundraising Quarter Ends in Ten Days!

{First, a quick plug for my blog Senate Guru.}

As we await the historic vote on health care reform, it’s important to remember that we’re just ten days away from the end of the first fundraising quarter of 2010.  The fundraising totals reported in this quarter will be pivotal to determining the tenor of many races for the rest of the year.  If there is any time to contribute, now is the time!

Please head over to the Expand the Map! ActBlue page and contribute whatever you are able to these terrific Democratic candidates for Senate.

Help Joe Sestak Meet Our Weekend Expand the Map! Goal

{First, a cheap plug for my blog Senate Guru.}

On the Expand the Map! ActBlue page, Congressman Joe Sestak is already into triple digits.  We’ve set a modest goal to get him over the $200 mark by the end of the weekend, and Congressman Sestak is only $66 away.

Can you help Congressman Sestak meet this goal by sending him $10 or $20 today on the Expand the Map! ActBlue page?  Every dollar makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.  Thanks SO much!

Joe Sestak an Inaugural Expand the Map! Senate Candidate

( – promoted by John Morgan)

{First, a cheap plug for my blog Senate Guru.}

Last cycle, I started an ActBlue page specifically for Democratic Senate candidates working to pick up seats held by Republicans.  I named it the Expand the Map! ActBlue page because the goal was to expand the map of competitive Senate seats.  The effort was a big success, achieving over 300 contributions and $40,000 for the Democratic Senate candidates included on the page.

I just kicked off the 2010 edition of the Expand the Map! ActBlue page with three Democratic candidates for Senate.  One of the inaugural members of the 2010 edition of the effort is Pennsylvania’s own Joe Sestak (as well as Missouri’s Robin Carnahan and New Hampshire’s Paul Hodes)!

While Joe Sestak travels Pennsylvania meeting voters, fundraising will remain a high priority.  Recent Republican Arlen Specter started off with a 2-to-1 financial advantage (at which Joe has already begun chipping away).  On top of that, Ed Rendell is working his political machine to do all he can to get Specter re-elected and Sestak bumped off.  To negate Specter’s financial advantage, Joe will need us in the netroots and grassroots to have his back.  Just this past Spring, Arlen Specter assured Pennsylvanians that he would definitely run as a Republican because he was a Republican.  Now he expects all of us to suffer a quick case of selective amnesia.  Let’s get Joe’s back because he has ours!

Please, please, please help kick off the 2010 cycle’s Expand the Map! effort by sending Joe (and these other highly deserving Democrats) a few bucks.  $100 makes a huge difference, $20 makes a huge difference, $10 makes a huge difference!  Hop over to the Expand the Map! ActBlue page and make your voice heard.

This is not just a contribution to Joe’s campaign.  This is a contribution toward slowing and eventually stopping Republican obstruction in the U.S. Senate and ensuring that Arlen Specter will no longer be an obstacle to progress.  Thank you SO much!
