I've posted several of these in the last few years (in the home-stretch to the 2012 election cycle, we raised over $11,400 for candidates who had more than a 70% win rate). Now I'm asking, one last time before Election Day, for your support.

And to help incent you to donate to some of Democrats in some tough Senate (and a few House) races, I am matching all donations up to $1,600 by 25% from now through midnight US-PDT Sunday night! So every additional dollar you donate beyond the $1,240 in the kitty as of right now, turns into $1.25 and I'll be "on the hook" to match your donations with up to $400.

Donate now and help maintain a Democratic majority in the Senate! You can donate here on ActBlue.

So step up and donate little turkee to the candidates of your choice and come Monday morning, I'll be providing my matching funds. Bring it on and do it here, right now!

And thank you, very much.

OK, I'm going to keep this "short and sweet". There's about a month to go until the 4 November Midterm Elections and the Republican Party are dead set on taking back control of the U.S. Senate and strengthen their hold on the House of Representatives. So I'm asking you to help by contributing your speech money in support of several of my favorite Democratic candidates for Senate (and a few for the House too). To that end, I've created an ActBlue fundraising page.

To encourage you to dip into your pockets, I'm going to match your contributions, at $0.50 for every $1 you communally contribute up to a total of $500, from now until midnight US-EDT tonight. (That would be an extra $750 in candidates' war chests!)

Please give what you can to the candidates of your choice to keep the US Senate BLUE, and thanks. Just click through here or below, and donate what you can to the candidates of your choice. And thank you very much.

Rep. Ed Markey has thrown his hat in the ring to replace Sen. John Kerry, assuming Mr. Kerry appointment as Secretary of State is affirmed in the US Senate, as is widely expected.

Here's what Mr. Markey had to say about why he was joining the race:

"I have decided to run for the US Senate because this fight is too important. There is so much at stake."

"With Senator Kerry's departure, Massachusetts voters will decide once again whether we want a Senator who will fight for all our families or one who supports a Republican agenda that benefits only the powerful and well-connected. I refuse to allow the Tea-Party dominated Republican Party to lead us off the fiscal cliff and into recession. I won't allow the National Rifle Association to obstruct an assault weapons ban yet again. I will not sit back and allow oil and coal industry lobbyists to thwart our clean energy future or extremists to restrict women's rights and health care."

Markey is the perfect candidate to replace John Kerry. Can you please help fund Mr. Markey's campaign so he can get the jump on the much-anticipated warmed-over campaign of Scott Brown?

I've just opened this campaign fundraising page on ActBlue to raise funds for Representative Markey's campaign. Can you join the fun(d) and help get his campaign off and running? Thanks!

I WILL MATCH CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES THROUGH SUNDAY

For 72-hours, from 11pm (US-ET) Thursday evening (27 Sep) until Sunday at 11pm, I am providing a 25% match on all of your donations (up to a maximum of $400) on my ActBlue fundraising page. You pick the candidate(s) of your choice from my list and donate what you can. On Sunday night, I'll connect at 11:00pm (US-EDT) and bump the number donated today by 25%.

So your $40 donation becomes $50, and so on, right on up to an aggregate of $1,200 $1,600 contributed by the communal "you" over the next 72-hours 28-hours. We started on Thursday night at $4,013 in the pool (and right now, the total is up to $6,304!), so let's see if we can hit $6,013 by Sunday night so we have already reached my maximum $400 match ceiling (yay!).

I began this humble fundraising page a couple of months ago in hopes of making it to $2,500. But through contributions from folks like you, it's now reached beyond $4,000 and climbing. Now, my objective is to reach beyond $5,000 $7,000 raised for some great Democrats before the Federal Elections Commission reporting deadline at the end of this month, and a stretch goal of reaching $10,000 before Election Day.

With my matching funds tomorrow night, we're guaranteed to at least go beyond $6,700. But now can you help push the total above $7,000 or (dare I say it?) $7,500 before the FEC reporting window closes tomorrow night?

Not only can you donate to President Obama on this page, but you can give to any of three dozen 39 outstanding Democratic candidates for US Senate and US House seats (detailed list of candidates below the orange croissant).

So far, the response from Kossacks has been both incredibly generous and enthusiastic. This is the last FEC reporting quarter of the election season; let's make it a great one for the President and candidates around the nation so that they can take the fight to their GOP opponents in the final weeks of this campaign!

Thank you in advance for your generous support - now let's help elect some great Democrats!

I'm going to make this diary short and sweet. There are seven days left in the month and the fundraising quarter. The campaigns are rapidly moving toward the stretch run and ad-buys and GOTV initiatives are just about to hit high gear and their highest costs.

I've compiled an ActBlue fundraising page with nearly three-dozen GREAT Democratic candidates that can use our help funding their campaigns -- from the presidential race to the US Senate and US House of Representatives. And I'm calling on you to help -- with whatever funds you can afford -- to help push these campaigns successfully to the finish line.

I started this page hoping to get to $2,000 but it's now gone over $3,500 raised for some excellent Democratic candidates. So I'm raising my sights -- hoping to reach $5K by the end of September and as much as $10K by Election Day. Can you help me get there, and in the process help some great Democrats (candidate listing below the orange croissant) get elected?

It's "one-stop shopping"; you can pick and choose which candidate(s) you want to contribute to and how much you want to contribute to each. No contribution is too big or too small!

Thanks in advance for your help!

OK! We're entering the 2nd half of September and getting down to crunch time. I've posted this fundraiser before and people from DKos, Facebook and elsewhere have come through with generous donations for President Obama's campaign and those of nearly three dozen other Democratic candidates for the US Senate and US House of Representatives.

What started as a goal to get to $2500, then moved on to $3000 and now, my next milestone target is $5000 with an ultimate objective of raising at least $10,000 for some GREAT Democratic candidates across the USA. And I've tried to make it simple for you all to help.

It's one-stop shopping, courtesy of ActBlue and you can pick the candidates of your choice and how much you can afford to give. We're going into the last two weeks of the last full reporting quarter before the election. Please help Democrats raise the funds they need to keep President Obama in office, maintain a majority in the Senate and take back the House -- no donations are too small (or too large).

Thanks for helping elect more and better Democrats!

Please visit and contribute to Frisco's Favorite Dems - 2012 tonight. Time is running short on Q2 fundraising and I want to do what I can. Like I did in the first quarter (we raised over $1,700 in that one), I've created a brand new ActBlue fundraising page for some deserving, strong Democratic candidates for the US House and Senate and for President Obama.

Check out Frisco's Favorite Dems - 2012 and choose the candidate or candidates that you're most passionate about supporting and give what you can ahead of Saturday night's 2nd Quarter campaign contributions deadline. And tomorrow night just before midnight, I'll add a 25% match to your contributions (more info below the little orange croissant).

[This is a repost of a diary I put up last night. Seeing as how we're very nearly at the end of the quarter, I thought I would give folks another chance to see it and possibly take action to help fund some worthy candidates. And I am adding a 20% "bonus" to the first $1,000 contributed.]

Hi. I'm trying to use ActBlue to fundraise for a few of my favorite Democrats. Several of them are facing tough races to take or return to seats in the House or Senate. Some of them are facing rough reelection cycles. Some of them just deserve a little love as strong standard bearers of the progressive cause. I think all of them uphold a strong tradition of progressive values.

To help motivate in whatever way I can, for the first $1,000 in donations to my ActBlue page, I am planning a fund-match -- see details below the orange squiggley thingy.
