    Nine Congressional Races Unresolved: Help out!

    From Democracy for America:

    Barack is already preparing to be our next President, but there are 9 Congressional races around the country that have yet to be settled.

    These campaigns still need our help.

    In 2000, we lost the election when the Bush campaign beat us in the legal and media fight that followed. In 2004, we had to force a recount in the Washington State Governor's race and we won because you delivered the resources to make it happen.

    We need to raise at least $40,000 by Monday to back up these races with the resources they need right now.


    In 2004, we raised over $250,000 for the Washington State recount. This year, we need $40,000 right now to keep the GOP dirty tricks at bay and make sure every vote is counted fairly.

    DFA's Grassroots All-Star Charlie Brown needs resources to fend off a team of Republican lawyers who, as I write this message, are challenging every Democratic ballot before the FIRST count has even been completed. Charlie is down by less than 500 votes with over 15,000 votes still to be counted. He needs our help to make sure every vote is counted.

    DFA-List Senate candidates Mark Begich and Al Franken are fighting back Republican dirty tricks to challenge uncounted votes. And other DFA-List candidates for Congress including Bill Hedrick in CA-44 and Mary Jo Kilroy in OH-15 need our help to make sure that every vote is counted in their races.

    We've all seen this before. When we don't give up and we fight tooth and nail for every vote: We win.


    We can take these races across the finish line. But we need to act fast.

    Thank you for everything you do.
