B6FXJA DNC Chairman Howard Dean addresses the Rural Caucus at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado
Former DNC Chairman and Governor Howard Dean (D. VT) is helping the DGA keep Terry McAuliffe's (D. VA) campaign fueled to defeat Tea Party lunatic Ken Cuccinelli (R. VA):
We are entering the final month and things are heating up in Virginia.
Tea Party favorite Ken Cuccinelli is within striking distance of Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the race for governor – The Washington Post has McAuliffe with a slim 49-44 lead.

That’s why you’re seeing Citizens United and the RGA go up with more money. They think they can win this race, if they pour in enough money.

I’ve seen the other side go all out and win races like this before. They know how important momentum is for 2014 and 2016.

As DNC Chair, I learned that you need to act fast to keep the lead. We might not have their money, but we’re smarter and we have the grassroots behind us. We know how to reach the right voters over the airwaves and on the ground. We can get out the facts on Cuccinelli, but only with your help.

We’re $57,109 from what we need to win. Do your part to get us there.

Donate $3 or more by midnight September 30 to help the DGA counter the multi-million dollars worth of attacks from the Tea Party in key battlegrounds across the country. We’ve got to move:

Voters agree with us on the issues. On creating jobs, investing in education, expanding health care and protecting voting rights, the people are on our side.

But lies told often enough become truth. The only way to counter aggressive lies is to be aggressive with the truth, pushing harder and longer to get it out. We’ve got to have ads on TV. We’ve got to make sure our teams on the ground have all they need to protect and turn out our supporters.

This won’t be easy. We’ve got the lead and the truth – make sure we can finish the job.

Give what you can now – even small gifts help, so long as we’re together:


Howard Dean

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
