We're looking for the first 1,000 charter members from Daily Kos to join this effort to dump Lincoln. This is just day one of what will be an intense two-month effort leading to the mid-May primary. Expect a full rollout on his policy proposals, as well as the engagement of many our movement's biggest hitters.
But Arkansas is a small state, where retail politics is critical. Halter is a master of retail, and the more the netroots contributes, the more time he can spend talking to voters and local media. Lincoln will be lavishly funded by her corporate benefactors. It's up to us to counter that nefarious money, and empower Halter to speak for the little guy, not the the Harold Fords of the world.
Update: Our original combined netroots goal for the WEEK was $500,000. In roughly seven hours, MoveOn and ActBlue have, combined, blown past those numbers. As of this update, the combined numbers are around $515,000.
