"We need leadership in Congress that is honest about the tough choices, courageous enough to compromise and willing to put the peoples business before party politics."Dear,
- MARK HARRIS
I am asking you or one of your front page bloggers to make a fundraising diary for the campaign of Democrat Mark L. Harris, who is running for Wisconsin's open 6th's Congressional District against Men's Rights Activist and all around extremist Glenn Grothman. The 6th is a conservative district by nature but President Obama won the district back in 2008 and with someone as extreme as Grothman running history can repeat itself with the right candidate. Mark Harris is that candidate, he is the best the candidate the democrats could have wished for, but he is in a dire need of funds:
As you can see from that article, Mark could really use a Daily Kos money bomb right now, the DCCC has so far refused to act on his behalf. Please, Kos, don't let the male version of Michele Bachmann walk right into the halls of congress with out fight.
A fellow Democrat
EDIT: As suggested by people in the comments, I am going to talk a little more about Mark Harris.
Mark is a policy wonk and he is probably one of the smartest guys running this cycle.
He fully supports Social Security:
He is fully behind lowering the cost of College:
Mark is a true Democrat, not some liberdem who we have to hold our noses for.
The fact that someone as good as him is running for seat like this is a great thing for our party. If someone like Mark can win a seat like this then we can start telling the blue dogs where they can stuff it! So if you would, could you please send a donation Mark's way? I know he will appreciate it the donation no matter how small:
8:49 PM PT: Update: we raised over 1k for Mark Harris in just a few hours!
A big thank you to everyone who donated and who helped making this diary so big! Outside of the Packers game, it was a great night! Now, let's all get the word out to Kos that we the people of Daily Kos want to go to bat for Mark!
