A great opportunity for a Democratic pickup is being overlooked by the progressive blogosphere.
We need your help! John Sweeney, the corrupt right-wing Republican incumbent has currently raised about $450,000 more than progressive Democratic challenger Kirsten Gillibrand. Already his attack machine is out in full force with a vicious new ad. The only way we'll be able to be able to successfully counteract his smears and attacks is by matching (or perhaps beating) his fundraising totals.
