9/18 Netroots Fundraising Push

Posted by James L.

Alright, rest assured, I'm not going to turn over Swing State Project into a week-long fundraiser again, but I am going to have to ask you to cough up a few bucks for the Netroots candidates on the DailyKos/MyDD/Swing State Project Actblue page today. In particular, Montana Democratic Senate candidate Jon Tester could use your help today. Montana is neither rich nor heavily populated, which means that the national netroots has to do some of the heavy lifting donor-wise to make sure that Jon Tester, a straight-talking populist progressive, can compete with Conrad Burns' big-dollar donations from corporate interests ($1.7m from business PACs alone). We don't have to raise that kind of money, but anything we can help raise for Jon will go a long way in a small media market state like Montana. And I wouldn't be making this suggestion if Jon didn't need the money--trust me, he does. To help, contribute here. Jon started the day at 2,911 donations, and he's closing in on 3,100 right now. Can we get him over the top by midnight?

And if you have a few extra bucks to spare, please consider helping out the other netroots candidates today, as well. We'd like to see Larry Grant, Gary Trauner and Tim Walz break 500 contributions (although my preferred benchmark would be 508--Ciro Rodriguez's total). And, while we're at it, can we get Paul Hodes above 1000? He's tantalyzingly close right now at 997...

Contribute today.
