2010 primary challenges to conservadems
Edited on Tue Mar-23-10 07:54 PM by eridani
This new topic is awaiting edits. It was started by eridani.

The primary challenge of Blanche Lincoln is big news. I think we need a list of all challenges of members of Congress from the left. Please add to the list.

1. Marcy Winograd is going after Jane Harman in CA-36 /

2. There is an open race in WA-03 due to the retirement of Brian Baird /

My name is Cheryl Crist, and Iím running for Congress. When we are sending young men and women to kill and die around the world, when 18 thousand Americans die from lack of health care each year, when Washington State has more than 9% unemployment, and when our planet is in crisis, my conscience compels me to stand up for peace, for prosperity, and for the people of the 3rd district.

Together, we have an amazing opportunity to change the priorities of our government. Government can be a place where we come together to build a brighter future. We can take this incredible power and use it to work for peace and sustainable prosperity for all people. That is why I am running for Congress. We need a representative who values people over corporate profits, life over conquest, and economic and environmental sustainability over quick financial gain. With your help, we can make sure our representation remains true to the values we all share.

3. Health care activist Larry Kalb is challenging Rick Larsen in WA-02 /

A REAL Democrat for a Change
This country has been leveraged. Our economy and lives are suffering as a consequence.

The lives of our citizens cannot be put on hold while we wait for the nation's balance sheets to reconcile.

Your needs are urgent. Your needs are reasonable.

Your needs are real:
Real jobs.
Real schools.
Real health care.

The key to real change is real representation.

Heard from a couple of more. Gotta love a candidate whose parents have a sense of humor.

Krystal Ball

Krystal Ball is owner of an educational software company, mother of a young daughter, and a progressive champ. She has big momentum in her campaign against Blue Dog Scott Robinson. The winner will face off against right-wing freshman Republican Rep. Rob Wittman in Virginia.

Ann McLane Kuster

Ann McLane Kuster is a longtime progressive who worked hard in New Hampshire to improve access to affordable health care for families -- and led grassroots efforts in the state on behalf of reproductive rights. Her primary opponent is Katrina Swett, national co-chair of Joe Lieberman's 2004 presidential campaign. This Democratic open seat is a golden opportunity to elect a bold progressive over a corporate Democrat.
