Pulling the progressive candidates I'm supporting into one convenient place, with an emphasis on winnable races with and places close to my heart especially mid-Atlantic & Pacific Northwest.

Image of Patty Murray

Patty Murray


Patty Murray finds herself in perhaps the toughest race since she was first elected. Patty was one of the few votes in the Senate against the Iraq boondoggle war, and her senior position on Appropriations Committee and in the Democratic leadership make her an invaluable champion for Washington State. Show her some love!

Denny Heck


Denny Heck is in a tight race to keep WA-03 (Olympia to Vancouver WA) blue this year in the wake of Brian Baird's retirement. He needs your help to keep Republicans from turning back the clock.

Image of Rick Larsen

Rick Larsen


Rick Larsen has been a solid progressive vote when we needed him. Frankly we've been spoiled to have so many D's in the US House, rebounding after the 1994 train wreck of an election. Don't let Republicans turn back the clock and take this district back either. He came in second in the primary by just 3000 votes to Koster, so this is a tough race, but Rick can pull it out.

Image of Scott McAdams

Scott McAdams


Scott McAdams is running for the US Senate from Alaska, which makes him practically a Washingtonian. The recent shakeup of the race, with Murkowski running a write in campaign after losing the primary, make this winnable. Your contributions will go a long way in this cheap media market and won't it feel incredible to have 2 Democratic senators from Alaska for the first time since... uh... ever?

Image of Joe Sestak

Joe Sestak


Joe Sestak beat Republican turncoat Specter in the Democratic primary, but now he has to beat back Club For Growth extremist Toomey in the general election. He's a great candidate, military man and fits the populist/centrist profile of Pennsylvania electorate perfectly. Polls are closing, so please lend a hand.

Image of Paul Kanjorski

Paul Kanjorski


Paul Kanjorski represents much of my old hometown, Williamsport PA, and although this D has been in the House for a long time, some polling is showing a close race. Don't take it for granted.

Image of Jack Conway Debt Retirement

Jack Conway Debt Retirement


Jack Conway may have the Dems best chance at picking up a Republican-held Senate seat in of all places Kentucky! I've already contributed to him before setting up this page, so that total should be higher. We need Jack to beat Rand Paul, one of the nuttiest, most conservative and least knowledgable (about his home state!) candidates running, even though O'Donnell and Angle are competing for that title too. Icing on the cake? Conway is young, has already won statewide office in Kentucky, and is a great campaigner. Add him to your short list too.

Image of Russ Feingold

Russ Feingold


Russ Feingold is one of the few in the US Senate that I feel really follows in the footsteps of great, independent thinking liberals such as Paul Wellstone, Ted Kennedy and Paul Simon. He's down a bit in the polls, and we can't lose his voice. Wisconsin, we need you to send Russ back!

Image of Barbara Boxer

Barbara Boxer


Barbara Boxer, what can I say? You rock and I am glad to see you finally pushing Carly on the ropes. California, it would be a shame to lose her, so while you are out legalizing weed, make sure you are not too stoned to pull the lever for Babs.

Image of David Cicilline

David Cicilline


David Cicilline would be, what, the 4th openly gay member of Congress? Incredible! And add to that, he's half Italian? Gotta love him. I'll probably throw a few bucks his way before the election is out, but word has it now that he is through the primary, he's a lock in November in liberal Rhode Island.
