Do you know Democratic Congressional Candidate Scott Killips??
You won't find his name on the wall in the post office, but you just might see it on billboards and yard signs in the coming months. Scott Killips is running against Pete Hoekstra in Michigan's 2nd Congressional District. Today he launched his website.
You might not live in the 2nd CD, but do you know your local Congresscritter? While our state is blessed to have a fantastic Democratic Congressional Caucus, we're also cursed with a couple Republicans thrown in here and there, like Hoekstra, Tim Walberg, Thad 'Momma's Boy' McCotter, Candice Miller, Fred Upton, Dave Camp, Vern Ehlers, Joe Knollenberg and my own critter, Mike Rogers.
We all want them out, and there's only way to go about it, get to work pounding the pavement, working on research, raising money, and blogging, blogging, blogging.
One of the biggest reasons Michigan's progressive netroots is a national leader is due to our respected congressional watch-blogs. We're winning the battle, but the war is far from over, and we need your help.
Do you like to do research? There are plenty of skeletons in the Republican campaign finance closet, most available online.
Are you more of the artistic type? We can always use a few good men and women with mad Photoshopping/Illustrator skills.
Are you good with a camcorder? We can always use more trackers, following the Congresscritters at their various public events, just waiting for the next Macaca moment. Trust me, sooner or later it will happen, and you will be so glad you were there.
Do you like to write? We always need more bloggers publishing the facts and photos.
We've got a fantastic crew of CD watchbloggers, but there's always room for more help. If you're interested in pitching in no matter what way, contact me or email the contributors directly through their blogs.
