When a DUer needs a little help, the DU answers the call


Just before I was diagnosed with dementia I ran for office twice. The DU raised about $2,500 between the two runs.

When I started the donation page for Joe Biden there was the sound of laughter echoing over in the cave. Almost 1/2 of a million dollars later, they aren't laughing anymore.

Now duhneece is running for New Mexico State Senate District 33. Duhneece is true blue. She could use a little of the magic DU did for me when I ran. As little as $3 buys a yard sign, and a hand written thank you card sent by the USPS.

The DU has already raised $515. We can do a lot better.

I know times are hard for many DUers. IF you can't afford a few $, then please help keep this kicked and give this post an R.

For those that can afford to give a little, thank you. It takes 5-10 minutes for the goal-o-meter to show your donation in the total.

In democratic solidarity,

Omaha Steve

19. I'm doing better than expected so far


I'm taking trazodone for my FTD. Research in Europe shows that it helps. I figure it can't hurt.

Thanks for asking,

9. Thank you, Omaha Steve!!! Duhneece is not just running in a really red district, she's

helping ALL the democrats racing in New Mexico right now! She's awesome, and is fearless about trying to get democrats elected over the shouts of the crazy people. She's helping get people out to vote who normally don't, and changing some minds along the way of people who voted for trump before.



Y'all send whatever you can! It really makes a difference, and can even pay for gas to get from precinct to precinct, or even to the polls; or some extra signs, or post cards going out to people who normally don't get out and vote. The funds can really help!

DU can do this!!

https://secure.actblue.com/donate/committee-to-elect-denise-lang-browne-1

Best of luck to you, Duhneece!!! And many thanks to her husband, Ron Browne, who works as tirelessly as she does for the Democratic party!!
