Mike Castle announced at noon today that he will be runing for Joe Biden's former Senate seat in 2010. Personally, this was unexpected but it is what it is. No sugar coating, this is bad news, but this race is far from unwinable. DE is a blue state and with enough money, Castle's edge can be sanded down. The critical part is getting a decent candidate on our side. And to do that we will have to show them that Democrates will stand behind him or her. That's why I encourage people to head to www.actblue.com to help our team.

Lately we have seen Senator Snowe's moderate posture dwindle as she becomes more aggressive in fighting the public option. There's talk that it's because she's facing pressure from the Republican leadership. I say rather than try to reason with them, let's apply a bit of pressure of our own. Pressure in the form of a Challenger for her seat in 2012

I just got a letter from the office of Senator Hillary Clinton explaining that for every dollar I donate, Democratic Senators will donate two more, thus tripling my donation.

So I know that we have all been busy concerning the general election for the white house as well as both chambers of congress. And that's great.
But lets not forget that all politics is local. To truly support a 50 state strategy and push real change across the nation, we need to remeber state politics and elections.
So here's my point. I found at least 5 states who have a Republican controled state chamber that could be fliped by just one or two seats. Now that may still not be very doable in most cases, but the obsurd thing is I cant even find out if those states have any close races! So lets talk about it people.

Today I made my first political donation and I couldn't be more excited about the possibility my contribution could tip the scales in even one race. Normally I don't contribute to the political process monetarily. I'd rather donate my time and energy. But I feel like we have so much going for the Democratic Party that with suffiecent funding we could have some real surprise victories come November. If you've never made a donation before or haven't so far for 2008. I suggest you consider it, you may never have an opportunity to get so much bang for your buck.

I want to run for a spot in the Tennessee delegation to the Democratic National Convention.
I'm a young voter and fairly new to the political party and blogging worlds. I have done a little volunteer work for some campaigns, you know phone banking, canvassing and such.
Anyways, I just wondered if it is realistic for someone like me, fresh out of college, no political connections, and no name recognition, to actually reciece a spot as a delegate.

SO at this point no real democrate contenders have come forward to challenge Lamar Alexander, and with less than a year left I believe we are left with three options.
