With a bullet: Donnelly (IN-2) gains more momentum

This past Friday, Joe Donnelly was named to the second wave of the DCCC's "Red to Blue" candidates. The "Red to Blue" program recognizes Democratic candidates who are challenging Republican incumbents in "red" states that have, through fundraising and voter outreach, shown their potential for victory in November.
This announcement is an exciting boost for the Donnelly campaign in terms of media exposure and validation in the eyes of contributors nationwide. While being a "Red to Blue" candidate will help Joe raise money in D.C., the Donnelly for Congress campaign is not just about pleasing those in D.C., it is ultimately about real representation for the 2nd district in Congress.
Joe is in this race because he believes we can do better than our current Congressman and he wants to be a Congressman we can all be proud of, across party lines. 2006 is an important year and we need everyone to get involved. New Democratic leadership in Congress will benefit us all. If you care to contribute to our campaign, either with your time or your money, please do so.
