PAC for a Change is kicking off our 2008 "Choose a Challenger" contest -- an opportunity for you and our entire online community to decide which Democratic Senate Challenger our PAC will support next. The winner of our online contest will be featured in a fundraising email to our PAC for a Change community, potentially adding tens of thousands of dollars to his or her campaign war chest this fall -- going a long way towards helping us build a stronger progressive Senate majority in 2009 and beyond.
As for Michael Skelly, he's caught the attention of the DCCC, which has him as one of their Emerging Races for the Red to Blue program. That doesn't mean any money directly, but it does mean that the DCCC will be pointing people to Skelly as someone to support, and it means there's a much better chance that they'll follow up with financial and other resources later on. Skelly is the only Texan represented on this list - it'd be nice to see Larry Joe Doherty on there in the future, given the encouraging poll numbers we've been getting - so this is a nice coup for him.Posted by Charles Kuffner on June 18, 2008 to Election 2008
