The story that everyone in D.C. wants to tell is that the Democratic Party is disheartened and disintegrating. Teabagger Republicans are juiced up and on top. Or so the media says, over and over again.
But you and I know differently. Because if you actually look at the data, it shows that you have helped me become the House candidate who raised the most money in the entire country during the last FEC reporting period -- $860,000 in three months -- from the most number of people.
You and I did this together. We did it without French-kissing lobbyists and without constant boosting by Fox News. We did it through outspoken populist ideas. I told it like it is, on the war, on jobs, and on health care.
And we're showing the Democratic Party that you can win when you have guts. Now I need a minute of your time to continue the fight. The progressive blog FireDogLake is holding a vote to see who they should support for 2010. They want to find candidates who aren't afraid of a fight and who won't back down.
Will you take a moment to vote for me in this contest?
The public wants a Democratic Party that will stand up for ordinary people. Let's show the rest of the Party that this is how you win. Please take a moment to vote.
