Hey guys - despite what some folks on MyDD might think, I'm a commited Democrat looking to help fellow Democrats get elected.
So that being said, I'm posting up some info about a fundraiser for Mike Signer, a really good guy running for LG in Virginia. Please excuse my ham-handed attempt to raise money for a political candidate...(there's a reason I don't do this professionally).
Without further ado, then, here is my pitch:
I am, along with members of Foreign Policy Professionals for Obama, hosting a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate for Virginia Lt Gov, under the theme of the importance of electing foreign policy/national security progressives to state-level office because today's state legislator is tomorrow's Member of Congress!
Mike Signer was a foreign policy advisor to John Edwards during the last Presidential campaign, speaking frequently and passionately about the importance of how America engages the world. Mike also has a very strong background on Homeland Security; he was deputy counselor to former Governor Warner on Homeland Security and National Guard policy. He also served as senior policy advisor and director of the Homeland Security Presidential Transition Initiative at the Center for American Progress, and is a principal at the Truman National Security Project.
Please join me on June 1 to help support a great candidate for office. Go to: http://www.mikesigner.com/newl... if you are interested! And if you think the guy is worth a shot, you should forward this on to your friends as well!
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
