Ohio Wins "Pick a Progressive Party Contest"
All the votes have been counted, and I'm proud to announce our winning state Democratic Parties. Minnesota, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Virginia received the most votes from the Progressive Patriots community, so I'm proud to contribute $3,000 to each of these states' Democratic Party organizations to help fund their efforts to get out the vote in November.
There are some very exciting races going on in all these states. Each has a crucial Senate race that we need to win if Democrats are going to retake control of the United States Senate – the Progressive Patriots have contributed to Amy Klobuchar, Sherrod Brown, Bill Nelson, Bob Casey, and Jim Webb individually, and it's great to see that you've voted to help their state parties with their voter mobilization efforts in the coming weeks.
In addition, there are 81 House races in these five states, including some great challengers that the Progressive Patriots Community has supported, like Lois Murphy, Patty Wetterling, Joe Sestak, Coleen Rowley, Phyllis Busansky, Tim Walz, Chris Carney and Pat Murphy. We have our best chance in years to retake the House, and your efforts will play a vital part in that by directing our contributions to states where there are seats in play.
Tomorrow, we'll start our next round of "Pick a Progressive Patriot" for candidates for Secretary of State. Make sure you stop by our site tomorrow to cast your vote. Thank you for your support.
