the DFA Wisconsin Recall Campaign.


This is it. DFA’s campaign to recall right-wing Gov. Scott Walker and four anti-union, anti-middle class Wisconsin Republican Senators is ready to go — and it’s the biggest campaign we’ve ever run.
– We’re going to be on the air with new hard-hitting TV, radio and web ads against Walker and his Republican cronies for their work to destroy unions and middle class families.
– We’re going to be on the ground with a massive door-to-door canvass, knocking on 127,353 doors in 35 days. Wisconsin Campaign Manager Kaili Lambe is on the ground right now hiring staff for our biggest-ever ground campaign.
– We’re talking directly to voters and having real Wisconsinites tell their stories because it’s the most effective tactic to win support and Get Out The Vote. A grassroots campaign run on people-power like this one is the only thing that can beat big corporate money — it’s the only thing that ever has. But we can’t do it without you.
Please chip in $8 right now to the DFA Wisconsin Recall Campaign.
Gov. Walker reminded us this week exactly what’s at stake when he pushed through a plan to throw more than 17,000 low-income Wisconsinites off Medicaid.

Wisconsin isn’t the only state where Republicans have launched all-out War on Working Families like this. But other right-wing Governors are taking their cues from Walker and his cronies.

Wisconsin is the front line in the War on Working Families and this recall campaign is our biggest ever. Join us now to put us over the top in the June 5 recall and send a message to Republicans across the country — attack the middle class and you lose.
Please contribute $8 now.
Thank you for everything you do.

The Middle Class in Action … Ohio, New Jersey and Kentucky


Now that’s what an election night is supposed to feel like!

I just spent the last four days crisscrossing Ohio and let me tell you, the energy is higher than I’ve seen it since 2008. We fought back against the Republican War on Working Families, the War on Voting, and the War on Women — and we won! To top it off, twelve fantastic DFA-endorsed candidates won critical races in places like New Jersey and Kentucky. We proved once again that when progressives stand up and fight, we win.

Click here to view all of our victories from last night — and keep the momentum going as we head into 2012.  http://act.democracyforamerica.com/go/1292?akid=1475.1480546.SWDcz0&t=1

Thanks to your hard work, and the work of DFA members across the country, we have a lot to celebrate today.

Thanks for all that you do.
