I updated this list together around September 18, 2006. I used the following sources: Election 2006 Projection Page Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball U.S. congressional elections in 2006 SourceWatch: Fighting Dem Vets for Congress My goal was to identify races where the Democratic candidate has a good chance of winning and where that Democratic candidate has less money than the Republican. Lamont may not quite fit this criteria, but I believe that he should be supported. Tammy Duckworth may be holding her own with financing, but again she is a very compelling candidate. I also favored Fighting Dems. NOTE: I rounded generally rounded fundraising dollars to the nearest million. I am donating to the following candidates via the Netroots Page: Darcy Burner Eric Massa James Webb Jay Fawcett Jon Tester Joseph Sestak Jr Linda Stender Ned Lamont Patrick Murphy
