Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    Northern California Focus: TAKE BACK RED CALIFORNIA

    This is a great effort across a large part of California that is too often neglected.

    Take Back Red California (TBRC) is a grassroots partnership that connects northern California Democrats in urban counties with northern California Democratic activists working in rural counties especially on a local level. We formed with the conviction that in order to successfully challenge the Republican's foothold in inland California, our highest priority should be development of and aggressive support for an active local base of Democrats in rural counties.

    The TBRC partnership offers rural counties financial, technical, and volunteer support to build a strong Democratic base and develop long-term Democratic political viability in predominately Republican-held districts...

    Their success can be measured by the fact that ALL NINE of their statewide endorsed candidates won in 2010. Furthermore two of the local candidates they endorsed were also successful in their bids for office: Alyson Huber was re-elected in AD10, and Dr. Richard Pan was elected to represent historically Republican AD5 - despite a well-resourced attack by Karl Rove's conservative machine.

    This is a wonderful resource for progressives in Northern California. Please join by clicking on Volunteer or Get Involved to give us your email and sign up to receive our newsletter, BackTalk, and to learn more about how you can help keep California “blue.”

    You can join for only $10, a modest investment in California's future. This is how we can win this year and, even more importantly, create a better environment for bringing change to America's political system, energy infrastructure, and economy. Join them and get involved in winning ALL of California for working and middle class Democratic values.
