We need to fight Republican obstructionism! The best way to accomplish this is to take back the Senate.

We have an excellent chance to do that this year, with your help. There are far more Republican senate seats (24) than Democratic seats (10) up in 2016. We need a net gain of 5 seats to win back the Senate.

There are several contests that are very close; most of them are for seats currently held by Republicans. I've listed what I think are the most important races -- the best opportunities for dramatically changing the makeup of the Senate and getting the biggest bang for our buck.

(Updated Sept. 26: I removed a couple of races that were looking like lost causes and replaced them with two that are looking more promising: Deborah Ross in NC and Jason Kander in MO. Also, I added one House candidate: Doug Applegate. See descriptions below.)

  • Progressive champion Russ Feingold of Wisconsin is fighting to win back the seat he lost to wealthy right-winger Ron Johnson six years ago.
  • Tammy Duckworth, Illinois congresswoman and helicopter pilot in the Iraq War (where she lost both legs as a result of combat injuries), is looking to defeat freshman Senator Mark Kirk and bring Barack Obama's former seat back into the blue column.
  • New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan is challenging first term senator and Tea Party darling Kelly Ayotte.
  • Katie McGinty, chief of staff to the governor of Pennsylvania, is running against extremely conservative freshman Pat Toomey.
  • Former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is running for the open seat of retiring Senator Harry Reid.
  • Former North Carolina ACLU Director and state legislator Deborah Ross is running a strong race against incumbent Senator Richard Burr. http://www.newsobserver.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/ned-barnett/article102602807.html
  • Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is trying to unseat Senator Roy Blunt. This race was pretty much a long shot until Kander released what may well be the best political ad in the country this year: https://www.jasonkander.com/2016/09/backgroundchecks/
  • In California's 49th Congressional District, Doug Applegate is giving the odious scofflaw Darrell Issa a run for his very considerable money. Among other dishonorable claims to fame, Issa has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars (and lots of Congress' time) on frivolous hearings designed solely to foment lies about Democrats.
Please give what you can to some or all of the candidates! Thank you!
