Chris Carney is one of several dozen Democrats ignored by the DCCC until after grassroots support catapulted him to a lead over an enfeebled, reactionary Republican incumbent. Carney, a Blue America-endorsed progressive, has seen his lead over Don "The Choker" Sherwood grow steadily since he first showed up on Firedoglake for one of our question and answer sessions. We've raised over $7,000 for him and Mike McIntee, Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Maxwell and Ken Mosher did a great customized version of "Have You Had Enough?" for Pennsylvania bloggers. This morning's Scranton Times-Tribune carries a story by Elizabeth Piet about how Blue America's efforts have helped Carney's campaign turn an entrenched congressman into an underdog while the DCCC at first shook its head, then scratched its head and is now heading for the bank to help Carney close the deal with voters in PA-10.


Connecticut newspapers are starting to write about "Have You Had Enough?" for two reasons: the band is going in to Connecticut to go on a statewide bus tour with Ned. They'll be performing the song wherever they can find someplace to plug in. And our "Time To Throw Nancy Johnson Out" spots are now flooding the airwaves in CT-05. The Waterbury Republican American did a YouTube oriented story this morning talking about our efforts to clean up Congress.

And you remember the wonderful Carol Voisin who's taking on bizarre right wing extremist Greg Walden up in Oregon, right? Well, Carol took "Have You Had Enough?" and made her own TV spot which is now up and running on cable TV. You can keep it on TV if you can afford to send Carol some money at her campaign's ActBlue page.

Great work Howie. I've posted it and will use it again. Great story in our local paper. I was surprised to read that you sometimes hang out in the neighborhood. Hopefully we'll run into each other.
