Nancy Skinner WINS DFA Grassroots All-Star contest!
Advertisements [?]
Here's the e-mail that went out from Jim Dean:

Dear Sharon,

You did it! Ninety-Eight candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives competed for your support and the 2008 DFA Grassroots All-Star endorsement. In total, you cast over 51,500 votes. Today, I am proud to announce your winner:

Nancy Skinner is the 2008 DFA Grassroots All-Star!

Please contribute $25 right now and support our winner.

Nancy is a fighter. In 2006, Nancy's people-powered campaign was ignored by national Democrats, but not by DFA members. We knocked on doors, made phone calls and recruited volunteers to get out the vote in this so-called "safe" Republican district. Nancy spent $400,000 while her opponent, Bush-Republican Joe Knollenberg, spent over $2.6 million. On Election Day, Nancy forced the Republicans to their tightest victory in decades by receiving over 46% of the vote.

Michigan Republicans aren't going to sit this election out. And Rep. Knollenberg, a seven term incumbent Republican, already raised over 1.4 million in 2007 to protect his seat.

Contribute $25 today and together, we'll give Nancy the resources she needs to win:

Nancy stands for progressive values. She has a plan to turn Michigan's auto industry green. This will expand and rebuild our national economy and Michigan's industry base. We can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil while improving the global environment. Nancy knows that if Congress is going to get serious in our fight to end global warming, we need a representative from Detroit leading the way.

Nancy will fight for health care for everyone. She proudly supports expanding the State Children's Health Insurance Plan to cover 10 million American kids. Her opponent voted with President Bush and supported his veto of the plan.

Nancy will fight to end the War in Iraq and bring our troops home. Her opponent voted for the authorization and has rushed to support President Bush's reckless war at every step of the way.

Nancy will win, but not without your support. Please contribute $25 right now to make change happen.

Thank you for putting your contribution into action.


Jim Dean
