what a successful Presidency looks like


The following sponsored message was sent to you by AlterNet on behalf of DCCC:

This is what a successful Presidency looks like:

President Obama Took Office
(January 2009)
Today
7,949 The Dow Jones Index 17,573
7.8% Unemployment 5.8%
-5.4% GDP Growth 3.5%
9.8% Deficit GDP % 2.8%
37.7 Consumer Confidence 94.5

In 6 years under President Barack Obama, we’ve made incredible progress as a country.

Often in the face of incredible obstruction, the President has continued to fight for us and lead us forward.

Will you add your name now and say that you’re still standing with President Obama in his final two years in office?

Joe Sestak …


VoteVets.orgSix years ago, in an impossible year for progressives, retired Navy Admiral Joe Sestak lost a heartbreaking campaign for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania by two points to Tea Party favorite, Pat Toomey.

Great news though: moments ago, Joe Sestak announced that he’s seeking a rematch in 2016, and VoteVets is proud to stand with him.

If the Senate is going to change hands next November, progressives must flip Pennsylvania … and Joe Sestak is the best choice to lead the way.

It is imperative that Joe Sestak’s campaign get off to a strong start today. Help make it happen your $3 contribution to his campaign.

Pat Toomey stood with Senate extremists who held veterans’ health care hostage during a time of crisis last year, introducing legislation that would put the Department of Veterans Affairs on a path to privatization, as well. As former President of the Club for Growth, he literally led the fight to privatize Social Security and Medicare.

Retired Admiral Sestak’s vision for veterans and working families stands in stark contrast to Senator Toomey’s. You can be sure he’ll stand up for us on the campaign trail, and in office … because he’s done it his entire career.

VoteVets is proud to stand with Joe Sestak’s campaign for U.S. Senate. He’s family. Join us with your $3 contribution today:

Joe Sestak served his country for over thirty years in the United States Navy. He’ll make a great leader in the United States Senate.

Thanks for standing with him,

Jon Soltz

2016 DNC host city


Description Ben Franklin <b>Bridge</b>-2.jpg

Join us.
We’re ready to elect another Democrat as the 45th President of the United States in 2016, and today we’re taking a big step on our path toward doing that.

After much buildup and very careful consideration over which city will host our 2016 Democratic National Convention, I’m pleased to announce that we’ll nominate the next President of the United States in Philadelphia — the City of Brotherly Love.

We’re going to have a great time together come July 2016 in Philadelphia — and many more details are coming soon. But there’s plenty of work for us to do before we reach Philadelphia, and Democrats will need your help to keep the White House blue.

So if you’re committed to electing the Democrat we’ll nominate next July, then add your name here and I’ll make sure you stay in the loop:
