I am so pleased to that the Netroots community – including DailyKos and many of the country’s most influential progressive political Web sites – has united again behind our campaign for change in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.
I want to thank the people at AmericaBlog, Archpundit, Chicagoist, Crooks&Liars, FireDogLake, OpenLeft and PrairieStateBlue — and anyone else I may have missed — who are helping with the “5,000 for Pera” push.
Just to give you a quick update, so far, we’ve received about 500 contributions for more than $16,000. The coverage we’re receiving across the Internet, and the interest in our campaign, is off the charts.
If you have already given to our campaign. Thank you! If you haven’t given yet, I would urge you do join the more than 3,000 people across the country who have and contribute today.
Everyone here, including our staff and volunteers, at the campaign offices in Countryside and Chicago are so grateful for the effort you are all putting forth on our behalf.
We know that you are aware of what is at stake on Feb. 5 here in Illinois. Voters here, like voters across the country, are tired of business as usual in Washington D.C.
With your help, we can change the face of Democratic politics in Chicago and Cook County and help deliver needed change to Congress. To keep track of this fundraising effort, and for news about our campaign, visit our Web site, www.PERA08.com.
