Our first endorsed candidate for 2016 is Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland. She is an amazing progressive Democrat who won her seat in Congress in 2008 by defeating an incumbent Wall Street Democrat in a primary.
We talk about defeating bad Wall Street Democrats in primaries all the time, and it never seems to happen. But Donna Edwards actually did it.
Now she is running for U.S. Senate, and she is in a really tough primary against yet another Wall Street Democrat. The New York Times rightly calls her race “a fight over the future of the Democratic Party.”
If she doesn’t hit her fundraising goal by the FEC deadline at midnight tonight, we could lose a real shot at putting another true, progressive Democrat in the U.S. Senate to fight for the people.
We need you to chip in $5 to Donna Edwards right now to make sure we have more progressives in the Senate.
There are only a few hours until the end of the quarter, we need supporters like you to step up if Donna Edwards is going to hit her $15,000 goal.
Hitting this goal by midnight Tuesday is how we show we’re a force to be reckoned with. Missing this goal means a lot fewer people--reporters, donors, activists, voters--will take her campaign seriously. Everything in the campaign could go downhill from there.
So if you believe we need a stronger voice for the people, not another voice for Wall Street or big business, you need to step up and give right now:
