How About A Nice Piece Of Art For Christmas? Blue America Contest


Gung Ho! by Nancy Ohanian

The wonderful Nancy Ohanian has donated one of her gorgeous signed prints, "Gung Ho," to Blue America to use for raising money for the candidates we've endorsed this year. She would like to see Congress flip from red to blue and so would we... and we know you would too. So this is how this contest works. Just contribute any amount (up to $2,700 per candidate) to any of our candidates on this page. One dollar; ten dollars, $1,000... it's up to you. Split it between all the candidates, or give it to your favorite candidate or split it between 2 or 3 candidates... all up to you.

Next week (Monday, December 17), we'll pick one name randomly and send that person the print by Nancy. Easy, right?

This is an especially important, even crucial, election cycle. I don't think there's ever been more at stake... with this madman in the White House and a Congress filled with enablers and cheerleaders. We can't get Trump out of office next November... but we can and will put a check on him by defeating lots and lots of Republicans in Congress, starting with Paul Ryan and working our way down through the ranks. And what makes this cycle even more exciting is that there seems to be a mammoth anti-Trump/anti-GOP wave building and intensifying. All the polling shows it. As we saw a few weeks ago in Virginia and last week in Georgia, there are no districts that are too red to flip-- IF the right candidates are running.

The men and women on this list are for-real progressives of good moral character and with solid work ethics. Most important, these are the people who will make Congress a better place and force Congress to make our country a better place. Please give as generously as you can. And if you want to have a chance to win but find yourself in a tight financial situation, just send a letter to Blue America at P.O. Box 27201, Los Angeles, CA 90027 and tell us you want to be part of the Christmas "Gung Ho" contest (be sure to include your contact info).

Goal ThermometerThe FEC demands we make some lawyer language available for our contests. You can find it here. [Trigger warning: this is lawyer stuff and could make you glaze over real fast.] And one more thing-- this ActBlue thermometer on the right goes to the contribution page. These are the progressive candidates Blue America has endorsed so far this cycle. We talk to them-- sometimes for months-- and get to know them and don't endorse them until we feel as sure as is humanly possible that when they get into Congress they will earnestly endeavor to enhance the lives of working families and make the tough decisions necessary to move our country along in a more progressive direction. Let us know if you want more information on any particular candidate. You can write to me at
