It's not enough for us to elect Barack Obama as our next President. We need to fill the House and Senate with bold Democrats to support and pass his agenda for change. Over the course of this year, this page will highlight the men and women, both incumbents and challengers, who will help President Obama make that change a reality.

Please support them just as generously as you've supported Barack Obama.

Jim Martin

GA-Sen

Every new Democrat in the Senate means one less vote on the margins needed for cloture. Every new Democrat means one step closer to enacting Barack Obama's agenda for change. And the world will be a better place with Saxby Chambliss away from the Capitol.

Tom Perriello

VA-05

Added March 31, 2008: After receiving his law degree from Yale University, Tom accepted an assignment working to end atrocities in the West African countries of Liberia and Sierra Leone, which had suffered long civil wars fueled by blood diamonds. Tom’s work with child soldiers, amputees, and local pro-democracy groups in Sierra Leone played a significant role in the peace and reconciliation process that ended twelve years of violence in that country.

Since 2004 he has been a leader in building a faith-based movement dedicated to working toward the common good, and helped found Avaaz.org, a global movement for social action.

Now he's running for Congress for Virginia's 5th District, where he has already helped develop and endorsed the Responsible Plan for Iraq. We need leadership like his in the House.

Patrick Murphy

PA-08

The first and only Iraq War veteran to serve in Congress, Patrick Murphy has helped lead the fight to bring our troops home from Iraq and ensure they receive the care and benefits they receive when they come back.

Back in August 2007, Murphy stepped to the plate to endorse Barack Obama, and spent a great deal of time in Iowa and New Hampshire on the stump for Barack Obama. Let's make sure we return him to Congress.

Rick Noriega

TX-Sen

Rick Noriega is an accomplished state representative in Texas, who also served our nation in Kabul, Afghanistan after 9/11.

Rick hasn't endorsed either candidate for President yet, instead telling one newspaper as follows:

"I'm for whoever wins," he replies diplomatically, before twirling into the second half of his answer: "I'm for who's going to come back to Texas and help us fight (to) win Texas."

...

Noriega falls back to Alamo imagery. "I'm drawing a line in the sand. My focus is which one of you (Obama or Clinton) is committed to help us win Texas back.

"At the end of the day," Noriega said, "I want to know who's going to be in the foxhole with us."

We know Barack Obama will be in that foxhole with him, and will execute the 50-state strategy to turn Texas blue and elect Rick Noriega to the Senate seat once held by Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Darcy Burner

WA-08

Want to know why so many in the netroots have rallied around Darcy Burner's race for the US House in Washington? Because she's a fighter. In Congress, Darcy will fight to bring our troops home safely, and fight to restore the Constitution from the abuses of the past seven years. She is one of the key movers behind the Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq, and we need her in Congress to pass Barack Obama's agenda.

Ashwin Madia

MN-03

Ashwin Madia is a veteran of the Iraq War, serving in Baghdad as a lawyer in the Marine Corps determined to strengthen Iraq's criminal justice system. Now back in his native Minnesota, he's running for an winnable open seat in Congress, and he pledges to fight to end the Iraq War, extend universal coverage to the uninsured and restore the Constitution.

We can make a real difference in the Twin Cities suburbs, and build a larger and stronger Democratic majority to pass President Obama's agenda for change. Help Ashwin today.
