Kerry: Help Take back Congress -- 3 AT THE BUZZER
Help Take back Congress -- You decide



For the last two years, something big has been going on in America. All of us got knocked on our ass in 2004 me included. But we got up, dusted ourselves off and decided our country mattered more than our pride. We fought back. We went online. We organized.

This cycle, the netroots picked 3 Senate candidates and 16 House candidates where you knew we had to win. Red states, blue states, it didnt matter, you changed the rules and were better off for it. Now we are on the verge of winning. So lets finish the Republicans off, lets go for three at the buzzer and go home with the win. Its time for a new team.

So heres the deal; vote for your favorite House and Senate netroots candidates on Wednesday, November 1 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST. The Senate candidate and the 2 House candidates with the most votes will get the last JohnKerry.com fundraising email of the cycle. Well challenge our 3 million person online community to get these fighters over the top in the last few days.

Here are the voting rules:

Voting is open only on Wednesday, November 1 from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. EST.
You can vote for up to 1 Senate and 2 House candidates. You may only vote once.
The top Senate vote-getter and the top 2 House vote-getters will be announced after polls close on Wednesday.
An email will be sent to the JohnKerry.com community on Thursday asking for support of the 3 winners in the closing days of the election.

Get your shot in before the buzzer!

John Kerry

2. The original for this post
is at http://www.johnkerry.com/action/youdecide

As for which candidate to vote for, I'm sure there will be more than a few who will try to convince you that theirs is the best.

4. Thanks for the link.
The senator's site has grown since I last visited. It was fun checking it out. There are a lot more videos and a blog.

3. I can't wait to vote. I've got some candidates in mind.
This is neat. We can have input into who gets that final push they need. The Repugs are gearing up for their last-ditch effort so it is good that we are going to be making strikes of our own.

On to victory '06!

5. I'm thinking Tester, Sestak, Murphy
I really like what I've heard about Tester, and I have to stay home for the other two.

But I could be persuaded, perhaps... who wants to lobby for me to change my vote? What's your guy or gal got that my three don't?

8. Jon Tester is running against Conrad Burns, who disses volunteer firefighters,
among other things.

I like Lamont, but he's been getting a lot of attention lately, and he has some money of his own.

I really like Tester on the issues (http://www.testerforsenate.com/issues ) plus, Conrad Burns is a creep. (Okay, so is Holy Joe, but at least he votes pro-environment).

It's a tough call - that's why it's a contest!

13. The RCCC just funded a new smeer against Eric Massa
See this Kos Diary for details, it has good info plus a link (if you want to see a disgusting fear based hit job against a good Democrat):

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/11/1/132724/783

Eric can use some funds to fight back, as of today the DCCC still hasn't given him a dime.
