Worthy Incumbents

Goal thermometer

Most of the endangered Democratic incumbents are Blue Dogs and New Dems who can't muster support from the grassroots because they vote with the Republicans for a Wall Street agenda. But there are a small handful of Democratic incumbents in swing districts who need help. That's what this page is all about. These men and women have done a good job and they deserve to be reelected. We'll be concentrating on progressives being primaried by conservatives and on progressives facing tight general election races.
