There's only about TWO WEEKS left of the campaign season now! With only days remaining until Election Day, campaign funds are at a premium.

While you certainly still can pick your favorite candidates to whom to contribute, I would suggest that the top-3 places to put funds now are in President Obama's campaign and the funds for the DSCC and DCCC. Those two committees will be watching the closest races down the stretch and pushing resources to the candidates with the best chances to win their races.

Elizabeth Warren

MA-Sen

Recent polls show Elizabeth Warren taking a lead over Sen. Scott Brown and lately Brown has resorted to lame attacks on Elizabeth's heritage. Let's help push Elizabeth over the top and take this Senate seat back for the Democratic Party.

Image of Tammy Baldwin

Tammy Baldwin

WI-Sen

Recent polls show Tammy overtaking former WI Governor Tommy Thompson by as many as 5 percentage points. Let's help her to victory!

During her tenure in the House, Tammy Baldwin proved she's a fighter for working people. Now, she's taking her fight to the U.S. Senate, where she aims to keep this Wisconsin seat blue and become the first openly LGBT U.S. senator.

Tim Kaine

VA-Sen

In a huge "mano a mano" battle for the VA Senate seat with the racist George "Macaca Moment" Allen. Help Tim keep Virginia blue!

Image of Claire McCaskill

Claire McCaskill

MO-Sen

Claire McCaskill is up against the anti-woman, anti-intellectual Todd Akin who believes he knows more about how the female anatomy works than scientists and doctors. Now, in his latest episode of misogyny, Akin is claiming Claire wasn't "ladylike" in her 1st debate against him. Please help push Claire over the top and Todd Akin off the national stage!

Sherrod Brown

OH-Sen

Let's keep real Progressive, Sherrod Brown's blue seat in the Senate!

Chris Murphy

CT-Sen

Let's help Chris Murphy over the top in Connecticut! Now we need to make sure Lieberman is replaced with a true progressive Democrat, not a 1%-er who's claim to fame is as an WWF executive. Recent polls are starting to show Chris opening some ground on Linda McMahon -- let's help him seal the deal with the voters of Connecticut!

Mazie Hirono

HI-Sen

Mazie Hirono has proven her progressive chops since she began her political career in the Hawaii legislature and as a member of the House of Representatives. She won't just keep this Senate seat blue, she'll be a strong progressive voice there.

Bill Nelson

FL-Sen

Bill is pulling ahead in Florida according to recent polls. Throw Bill Nelson some additional funding and he, in turn, can help throw his GOP opponent Connie Mack's sinking campaign an anvil.

Image of Richard Carmona

Richard Carmona

AZ-Sen

Late-breaking polls show Richard Carmona closing fast on GOP candidate Jeff Flake and the Tea Party is re-upping efforts to try to bolster one of their poster-children in this race. Help defeat the Teajadists by sending Carmona to the Senate in Arizona!

Image of Martin Heinrich

Martin Heinrich

NM-Sen

Congressman Martin Heinrich is running for the Senate seat from New Mexico being vacated by the retiring Jeff Bingaman. He's running against Republican Heather Wilson. The 40-year old Heinrich is an up-and-comer in the Democratic Party and this would be a great seat to keep blue!

Image of Heidi Heitkamp

Heidi Heitkamp

ND-Sen

Mary Kathryn "Heidi" Heitkamp is running to replace the retiring Byron Dorgan in the Senate from North Dakota. She's in a very close race, a "dead heat" by recent polls, versus Republican Rep. Rick Berg.

Debbie Stabenow

MI-Sen

Let's help keep Debbie Stabenow in her blue Senate seat for another 6 years!

NY-Sen

Awesome 1st term Senator from NY, Kirsten swept into Hillary Clinton's former seat in 2010 running for reelection.

I'm a big fan of Maria Cantwell's -- let's keep her in her Senate role for Washington state!

Rob Zerban

WI-01

Rob Zerban is running for GOP VP-candidate Paul Ryan's seat in Wisconsin's 1st congressional district. WI election laws prohibit Ryan from dropping out of this race or the Republicans from officially nominating another to replace him. If we help Rob take this seat together with Pres. Obama holding the presidency, we can show Paul Ryan and his anti-middle class agenda the door completely.

Carol Shea-Porter

NH-01

Carol Shea-Porter is a proven progressive waging a comeback bid for the seat she held from 2007 to 2011. Polling shows her with an edge over her freshman Republican opponent.

Ann McLane Kuster

NH-02

Annie is in it to win it! Annie Kuster is an outspoken progressive dedicated to grassroots campaigning. She is running for Congress is one of the most winnable districts in the country this year.

Image of Dan Maffei

Dan Maffei

NY-24

Dan was Congressman for upstate NY for 2 short years, when 2 years ago he was swept out of his seat by the Teajadists and Ann Marie Buerkle (then designated NY-25 before census), losing in one of the closest of the 2010 Congressional races by only 650 votes.

Of course, Buerkle has since proved to be the most right-wing Republican in NY, voting against Veterans' funding, the Affordable Care Act, and anything to do with women's health & the ability to access contraception or a safe abortion. Buerkle has voted for Paul Ryan's disastrous budget, wants to see Medicare stopped for anyone under 55, invited the despicable Allen West to raise money in the district. She's one of the GOP's "Young Guns" (do you remember Sarah Palin's "Don't retreat; rearm," motto?) that came in on the Tea Party vote of 2 years ago.

Let's help Dan Maffei sweep another Teajadist off the board and return NY-24 to a BLUE seat in the House! Right now according to all the polls, the two are neck-and-neck, with the Republicans hoping a Green candidate will be a spoiler to Dan.

Image of Ami Bera

Ami Bera

CA-07

Ami Bera held odious Republican Dan Lungren to only 50.1% of the vote in 2010. Now, in a better year and with a district far more favorable to Democrats, this is one of the best pickup opportunities for team blue anywhere in the country.

Image of Jose Hernandez

Jose Hernandez

CA-10

Jose Hernandez went from picking tomatoes in California fields, to space as a Shuttle astronaut. The kind of work and dedication that allowed him to overcome insurmountable odds will serve him well in his bid for Congress against Republican Rep. Jeff Dunham.

Image of Manan Trivedi

Manan Trivedi

PA-06

Manan Trivedi, who ran a great race in 2010 despite the tough headwinds, is back for a second shot at this seat. Even though Republicans tried to shore it up in redistricting, it still went for Barack Obama by a 53-46 margin.

Image of Jerry McNerney

Jerry McNerney

CA-09

Jerry McNernry is an excellent progressive Democrat wth a great track record, running in a challenging but winnable California newly-formed district.

Image of Jerry Tetalman

Jerry Tetalman

CA-49

Jerry Tetalman is attempting to unseat the odious Darryl Issa in California 49. How about if we help make Jerry a very surprising "49er"?

Image of Suzan DelBene

Suzan DelBene

WA-01

Now confirmed as the Democratic candidate for Washington's 1st district, battling against Republican John Koster, water-carrier for the right-wing extreme agenda and "trickle-down" economic theorist.

Image of Patrick Murphy

Patrick Murphy

FL-18

Patrick Murphy is running to unseat none other than Allen West, the tea party's favorite conservative and the most odious Republican in Congress. Let's make West's first term his last.

West is running around saying that women and feminists are "neutering" him. Can you help show him the door?

Image of Joe Garcia

Joe Garcia

FL-26

Joe Garcia is running against one of the most corrupt Republicans in the House—and you know that's saying something! Even though Florida is a swing state, only 6 of its 25 members of Congress are Democrats. Let's change that!

Michelle Lujan Grisham

NM-01

Michelle is a a twelfth generation New Mexican who has dedicated her life to serving her community, fighting for seniors and building an economy that works for all New Mexicans.

She is running for Martin Heinrich's congressional seat, which he is giving up in order to run for Senate (see above!). We really need to keep that seat BLUE - losing it to Michelle's Republican challenger Janice Arnold-Jones would be a huge step backwards. Help keep NM-01 BLUE!
