Blue Catapult has Successful Launch

I wanted to let the MyDD community know about the great Launch Party that Blue Catapult PAC had on Wednesday in Washington, DC.  The crowd that attended enjoyed great music from the DJs, snacks and a really nice bar.  The conversations were great as everybody was dertermined to overthrow the GOP from congressional control.

The generosity of those in attendance was tremendous and Blue Catapult PAC is now close to $2000 in contributions.  We will cut our first checks to our first adopted Democratic Challengers next week as we contribute to the Darcy Burner (WA-8), Eric Massa (NY-29) and Chris Carney (PA-10) campaigns.

Blue Catapult PAC then will take its next steps.  Over the next few months we want to: Get an ActBlue page so that we can get contributions over the Internet (if anyone can inform us as to the best way to do that, we would appreciate it); We will adopt more Democratic challengers to support through various fundraisers; and we are planning a national fundraising event for late Spring -- we are working out the details but will keep the MyDD community informed once it is close to ready. Keep going to www.bluecatapullt.com to stay updated on our activities.

Also, two of the adopted Blue Catapult candidates will be in Washington, DC for meet and greet fundraisers in March:  

Eric Massa will hold a fun event on Tuesday, March 14th, with an array of hosts, including Gen. Wesley Clark, Adm. William J. Crowe and Senator Max Cleland at the Mott House at 122 Maryland Ave, NE (6PM to 8PM).  Go to www.massaforcongress.com for more details.

Darcy Burner will have a smaller Meet and Greet fundraiser the evening of Wednesday, March 15th.  Place and exact time are still being finalized, though it will be in Washington, DC --but if you want to learn the details when it is announced, please sign up for our Mailing List or send a note to launch@bluecatapult.com

Thanks to all who attended the Launch Party.  Everyone had fun and it is a great first step in the battle to make the congressional majority a Democratic majority.  Please stay involved with Blue Catapult.  www.bluecatapult.com

Awesome!  I'm glad it was a success, and I'm glad you guys have money to send to some very worthy candidates!

I love what you guys are all about--expanding the battlefield and moving up "tier 2" into "tier 1" races.  (Or even "tier 3" into "tier 2" races...)

I hope to hear about many more successful events on MyDD in the months ahead! :)
