We have a chance to achieve a significant victory this Fall in Virginia. There are four House seats currently held by Republicans where the Democrats have a chance to win on November 4.
Facing today's economic crisis, we need new leaders who will fight for the people of Virginia to secure our future and economic fairness. Two years ago, you helped step up for me in the final weeks to carry us to victory. Today, I'm asking you to do the same for Gerry Connolly, Judy Feder, Glenn Nye, and Tom Perriello before tonight's September 30th fundraising deadline.
In Virginia's 11th Congressional District, Democrat Gerry Connolly is in a close race in a district for a seat currently held by a Republican. Gerry Connolly is Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Gerry is a dedicated community leader, and his common-sense approach to community issues has earned him countless awards for his work on the environment, improving public safety, and transportation.
This November, Gerry faces a tough battle against a well-funded and wealthy businessman. Help make sure Gerry has the resources to stay competitive in this critical House race.
Judy Feder is running in Virginia's 10th Congressional District against a 14-term incumbent Republican. At the Department of Health and Human Services, Judy worked to expand health insurance coverage, manage Medicare and Medicaid effectively, and assure the safety of food and drugs. One of the nation's leading experts on health policy, Judy is respected for her work as a scholar, public servant, educator, and independent advocate for America's families.
Two years ago, Judy came just short of winning this Seat, but with your help she'll win this November. Please donate to Judy's campaign before the deadline at midnight tonight.
Glenn Nye, running in Virginia's 2nd Congressional District, is a former Foreign Service officer who volunteered to serve in conflict zones in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Iraq. He received the State Department's Superior Honor Award for leading a rescue of 26 American citizens and negotiating the release of an American hostage. Glenn and I share the belief that the Bush Administration has led our country into a misguided war in Iraq while neglecting priorities at home, and that we must change the direction of our nation.
Glenn's opponent has already started to launch false personal attacks against Glenn. We can't let the right-wing smear Glenn's record.
Please help Glenn Nye fight back against the attacks. Contribute before the midnight deadline!
Tom Perriello, running in Virginia's 5th Congressional District, has spent his entire adult life fighting for human rights. Tom worked to end atrocities in Liberia and Sierra Leone, which had suffered long civil wars fueled by blood diamonds. Tom also helped found FaithfulAmerica.org and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, which bring together faith communities to fight for health care, supporting a higher minimum wage, environmental stewardship, and responsible solutions in Iraq.
With tonight's FEC filing deadline just a few hours away, Tom needs us to help him end the quarter strong. Click here to donate to Tom's campaign before midnight!
Since 2001, the Democratic Party has enjoyed great success in Virginia. This November, we have a chance to continue to build upon this and elect 4 new members to the U.S. House. This is a critical time for candidates, and I hope you'll be able to help Gerry, Judy, Glenn, and Tom in these final hours before the midnight deadline.
