WooHoo!!!!!!! John Courage wins Progressive Patriot Award
Edited on Fri Dec-16-05 11:38 AM by WestHoustonDem
I am excited to announce that you have chosen John Courage to be our first Progressive Patriot. John is a terrific candidate running in the Texas 21st. He's running to protect social security from privatization, to bring affordable health care to all Americans, and to make our country a leader in alternative energy. He's a veteran who wants to bring our troops home safely, and a teacher who will work to improve public education. I'm proud to call John Courage a Progressive Patriot, and based on your recommendation we will contribute $5,000 to his campaign for Congress. You can find out more about John at his website, http://www.courageforcongress.org .

With so many deserving candidates competing in this online voting event, it is difficult to support only the candidates receiving the most votes, so we have also decided to make smaller contributions to each of the other ten candidates. I hope that you will also consider financially supporting these great candidates in the future.

Because of the overwhelming response to this event, we hope to do similar events several times over the coming year. There are many other strong democratic candidates running in 2006 who deserve our support. I am committed to doing everything I can to help elect more democrats across the country, but I need your financial help if we are to be effective. Please consider making a contribution today, so that we may continue to help to support these candidates through the Progressive Patriots Fund.

Sincerely,

Russ Feingold

Russ Feingold
United States Senator

2. Hey Sweetie you beat me to it!
I didn't see your thread when I posted mine. I was on the phone and hadn't hit my post button. Thanks for the support!

Lamar Smith voted against the John McCain ban on torture amendment in the House. Luckily the House still supported the ban on torture but not Lamar. He's so out of touch with Americans.

I will forever be indebted to all of you for helping me elect John Courage as my Congressman. I just know we're going to make it!

The power of this "electronic grass roots uprising" is formidable. Let's see...who else is on the list to either "uproot" or "uprise" today.

Thanks WHD and Sonia!
