These are some of our biggest pick up chances for 2012. Each of these districts are ones where Republican incumbents are polling poorly. Many of them are also key swing districts for Senate races and for the Presidency. If we want to take our country back from the teabagger fanatics, THESE are the seats we need to win

Christie Vilsack


This is one of the most critical races in 2012. A key swing district in a key swing state, this race also pits the excellent Christie Vilsack against Teabagger Steven King who is so mean spirited he even was one of only eleven Congressmen (all Republican) who voted against giving aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This is a clear cut choice between Vilsack's effective and compassionate leadership and King's disgusting extremism.

VA-2 is a key swing district in Virginia, a key swing state. Very business oriented, but that may be what we need to win this district. And his opponent is anti-choice, anti-women's rights, anti-gay, bigoted and has always spent hundreds of thousands of his own money to buy elections. We can do better. Paul Hirschbiel will give us better.

Bill Foster


Bill Foster is an excellent candidate. A brilliant scientists and successful entrepreneur he brings much needed expertise to Congress...something that we desperately need. He is very much a moderate running in a moderate district. A perfect fit.

Bill Foster has been endorsed by the Associated Firefighters of Illinois, AFL-CIO State Federation of Illinois, Illinois Federation of Teachers, Amalgamated Transit Union Local #308, and many others.

IL-11 Democratic Nominee Fund


(See above for Bill Foster, our nominee in this race) This seat is currently held by Adam Kinzinger (R). Contributions to this fund will be sent to the Democratic nominee upon his or her selection. Bill Foster is the likely nominee for this seat. Bill Foster is a scientist and entrepreneur who I supported when he first ran for Congress. He won but then lost in the 2010 Republican resurgence. He is ready to make a comeback and I support him!

A great candidate running against entrenched Republican incumbent Dan Lungren. Ami Bera is a doctor and formerly former Chief Medical Officer for the County of Sacramento. He would be an excellent addition to Congress.

Our nominee for CO-6

CO-06 Democratic Nominee Fund


(See above for Joe Miklosi, our nominee in this race) Another swing district in a key swing state. Joe Miklosi is the Democratic candidate in this district.

Joe Miklosi For Colorado!

NV-3 is another critical swing district this year and this is a very weak Repub seat. John Oceguera has a good shot at winning if we fight hard for it. He is a firefighter and paramedic, someone we definitely could use in Congress!

AR-02 Democratic Nominee Fund


(See above for Herb Rule, our nominee in this race) This seat is currently held by Tim Griffin (R). Contributions to this fund will be sent to the Democratic nominee upon his or her selection. David Boling is the likely Democratic candidate, someone who I respect and hope will be the new Congressman from AR-02. I was born in this district and would love to see it flip true blue.

The NY-11 district is one I am familiar with. Definitely leans Repub but the Repub incumbent has been starting to act as if he is getting desperate. I am wondering if he knows something we don't. I think we have a shot here though it is a long shot. But the Democrats in the Brooklyn end of this district have suddenly gotten more unified and eager to prove their worth. So it could be very interesting.
