I just got a call from the DCCC
The lady said that if I donated at least $35 the amount would be tripled by unopposed Dems in Mass. and other states. Anyone else heard of this?

1. If so then that's the best thing they have done this year
I'm also thrilled that candidates like John Hall and Larry Grant are now on their Red to Blue list!

2. That is one of their new fundraising ideas
They're matching funds of people who donate

And I DID donate as should everyone on DU, if they can afford it.

8. and a link for having DSCC contributions matched 2 to 1 til Oct 31
https://secure.democratsenators.org/dia/organizations/d...

We will put your contribution to work immediately in our campaign to elect a Democratic Senate.

For every dollar contributed by October 31 as a result of this request, a group of Senate Democrats will raise an additional two dollars - effectively tripling your gift.

Remember, if you'd prefer, you can also make your contribution by phone. Just call 1-866-450-3804.

9. I get emails to that effect quite regularly.
Coming from one of the established organizations, they should be legitimate.
It frustrates me no end that I can't give a little to all the progressive requests that I get, but there's only so much to go around.

For the first cycle in ten years, I'm actually getting dem calls instead of publiclown pre-records and other such garbage. That leads me to a bit more positive a place.

11. MoveOn and MyDD spearheaded this project
there's about 50-million that unopposed dems have raised & they convinced Barney Frank, etc to donate some of it to the DCCC.

12. Yup! I got an email about it. I hadn't donated to any
political organization like DCCC or the DSCC or DNC, but getting 3-to-1 for my money?....I just couldn't pass it up. I bit the bullet and donated. They NEED the money.
