Ned Lamonts win in the Connecticut senatorial primary was a great victory for Internet activists. Lets enjoy it for a moment, and then get right back to work. We have many more victories to arrange over the next 2-1/2 months, so lets use the energy generated by Tuesday nights good news to do more. To win more. To take back the Congress and to take back our country from the right wingers who have stolen it.

One candidate who needs our help is Tony Trupiano, running for Congress in Michigans 11th District. Tony is a true blue progressive, and is exactly the kind of candidate we of the netroots want to put in office. And he can winBUT ONLY IF WE WILL HELP! Tony has shared with me the results of his recent internal polling, and here are some of the highlights:

(Tonys opponent) McCotters re-elect number was just below 47%. Any incumbent under 50% is considered in trouble

The District is divided 50-50 with Democrat and Republican ids. This was unexpected and a great number as usually the district has at least a 5% Republican tilt

Bushs approval ratings are dismal, with almost 40% of respondents giving him a one or two on a scale of 1-10 (with one being the lowest)

This poll proves that this is a winnable race, as weve known from the beginning. It is the only winnable race in Michigan

Tony was a radio talk show host for years, and helped many progressives promote their books, their websites, and their candidacies. Now its time for us to return the favor.

We cant help every Congressional candidate, but it certainly makes sense to help those who are likely to turn a red district blue. So lets get cracking!

If you can contribute, go to one of the links below. If you have a media platform, interview Tony. Put him on the air. Write about him. Hes a good man, and could be the next big success of the Internet.

Contribute at Tonys website or at ActBlue: . Do it today. Right now. This minute.

1. I bet to differ that it's the only winnable race in Michigan
Nancy Skinner's district is also 50-50 and Knollenberg is very vulnerable.
