At Daily Kos, we're always on the lookout for races and issues we can support to further progressive causes and elect more and better Democrats.

Contribute now to our slate of candidates and causes so that we can continue to push Congress and the country in a more progressive direction.



Image of Gary Peters

Gary Peters

MI-Sen

Rep. Gary Peters stood by Obamacare in 2010, even though it nearly cost his re-election. Today, he stands with us on comprehensive immigration reform, protecting Social Security and Medicare, and ending the filibuster once and for all.

Image of Rick Weiland

Rick Weiland

SD-Sen

True progressive Rick Weiland has a chance to win a race Republicans long ago assumed was theirs. Not only would a victory here constitute a dramatic fail for the GOP, but would also upgrade the Democratic caucus significantly.

South Dakota NDN Election Efforts

The South Dakota Senate race will come down in large part to Native American turnout in the state's five reservations. The SD NDN Election Efforts PAC is focused on voter registration and turnout of those key voters.

Image of Mike Honda

Mike Honda

CA-17

Mike Honda is a strong progressive Democrat, and has been since he was first elected to Congress in 2000. Now, he’s facing a well-funded challenge from the right in the general election.

Image of Staci Appel

Staci Appel

IA-03

Staci Appel is running in Iowa's 3rd Congressional District—one of the few districts in which Democrats are playing offense this cycle. It's an open seat since GOP Rep. Tom Latham made a surprise decision to retire this year and, with Appel leading by just three points in the most recent poll, both sides are fighting like hell for this seat.

Image of Jim Mowrer

Jim Mowrer

IA-04

Republican Rep. Steve King has made of the most bigoted, stupid, and flat-out crazy pronouncements in Congress. Jim Mowrer is the fighting Dem that is going to beat him this fall.

Image of Rick Nolan

Rick Nolan

MN-08

Image of Carol Shea-Porter

Carol Shea-Porter

NH-01

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is a progressive champion in the House and one of the most heavily targeted Democrats every single cycle. Given her district, her survival can never be assumed. If we want liberal champions in Congress, we have to have their backs, particularly ones who don't sell out to corporate interests like Shea-Porter.

John Foust

VA-10

Virginia's 10th is a swingy district that the GOP didn't expect to have to defend this year, but one of their last remaining "moderates" bailed, leaving them with an open seat.

Image of Mark Harris

Mark Harris

WI-06

Image of Mike Michaud

Mike Michaud

ME-Gov

Michael Michaud would be the nation's first openly LGBT governor. He is a champion of environmental issues, wants to expand Medicaid, and is solid down the line on labor and women's issues.

Image of Mark Schauer

Mark Schauer

MI-Gov

Incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is one of the most right-wing governors elected in the 2010 Tea Party wave, jamming through a union-busting bill that even Snyder himself said was extreme. Mark Schauer is the Democrat who can beat Snyder and restore some common-sense governance to Michigan.

Image of Tom Wolf

Tom Wolf

PA-Gov

Pennsylvania could see a huge Democratic wave in 2014. Incumbent GOP Gov. Tom Corbett is hugely unpopular and Democrats look good to pick up the governor’s seat and maybe the state legislature.

Image of Wendy Davis

Wendy Davis

TX-Gov

Wendy Davis became an overnight sensation for leading a filibuster in the Texas state Senate to stop one of the worst anti-choice bills in the country. Now, she’s running to turn Texas blue.

Image of Mary Burke

Mary Burke

WI-Gov

Mary Burke would be Wisconsin’s first woman governor. Her opponent, incumbent Gov. Scott Walker needs no introduction—he’s a leader of the Republican war on working families. Winning here could send shockwaves through the Republican Party.

Image of Lucy Flores

Lucy Flores

NV-Lt Gov

Lucy Flores is one of the Democratic Party's biggest rising stars and the campaign for Nevada's lieutenant governor's race is seen as a proxy war between Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Image of Joe Neguse

Joe Neguse

CO-Sec State

Colorado has hotly contested raced for governor and senator, so down-ballot races like this one aren't getting the attention they deserve, but will be just as hard-fought and just as important to win.

Image of Brad Anderson

Brad Anderson

IA-Sec State

Iowa is one of the most competitive SOS races in the country. The most recent poll has the race tied at 31-31. This is a purple state where we need to win.

Image of Jean Schodorf

Jean Schodorf

KS-Sec State

Kansas Republican Kris Kobach is the worst secretary of state in the nation and he's tied 46-46 with Democratic challengers Jean Schodorf.

Image of Kate Marshall

Kate Marshall

NV-Sec State

Democrat Kate Marshall and Republican Barbara Cegavske couldn't be more different: Marshall opposes voter ID, Cegavske does not; Marshall supports same-day voter registration, Cegavske does not; Marshall supports early voting, Cegavske sponsored a bill to eliminate early voting entirely.

Image of Nina Turner

Nina Turner

OH-Sec State

As Ohio Secretary of State, Republican Jon Husted has restricted early voting, introduced voter ID requirements that make it harder for the poor and elderly to vote, and led a purge of voter rolls. We need to win back the SOS office in this important swing state.

Dean DeBroux

WI-SD-01

In Wisconsin, it's not just about sending Scott Walker packing. It's about clearing out all the crud that swept in during the GOP's 2010 wave. That means the governor, of course, and the state legislature as well. Republicans have a three-seat majority in the state Senate, well within reach of a Democratic majority.

NY-SD-40

Even though they're in the minority, Republicans currently hold the Senate thanks to five turncoat "Democrats" who caucus with the GOP. That's why we're engaging in four New York state Senate races, all featuring top-tier candidates with a serious chance of winning. We win these races the chances of another Republican-led Senate is dramatically diminished.
