Noriega: One month in

It's been one month since folks like me who support Rick Noriega for Senate first launched a drive to get 800 donors to Rick's campaign by the end of the quarter on September 30. As of this one-month anniversary, some 477 people have made contributions to Rick via ActBlue, with a sum of over $27,000 being given. A lot of things have gone into that total, including Rick's rock star appearance at Yearly Kos, a big boost from the folks at the Blue America 08 PAC, and even the untriumphant return of Karl Rove to Texas. However you slice it, it was a pretty impressive month for Team Noriega, and we've still got half of the quarter to go.

So, on behalf of Rep. Noriega and his team, let me say Thank You to everyone who's signed up to be a part of this effort. You can't claim to be "people powered" without a lot of people, and it's been truly heartwarming to see such a response from so many people. If you haven't gotten on board yet, have no fear. It's always the right time to make a donation and help elect a Senator for Texas we can all be proud of.

It's going to get ugly amongst Dem supporters, no doubt. Look at this San Antonio editor choosing Watts' side (because her husband does)

$27,000 in 30 days is awesome!

This should give Noriega a big boost to get his message out with a direct mail piece and maybe even some TV spots in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin.

How much did Barbara Radnofsky raise in her primary campaign against Gene Kelley? I bet not nearly as much as Rick!

Bravo, and seconded, Charles.

It's been quite a month. Thanks to all those who've helped to make it so memorable.
