Our Five in 35

screen_shot_2012-11-05_at_12.18.05_pm__medium.pngThis election week we are all busily making calls, knocking on doors, tabulating data, and WRITING CHECKS!  Yes, it’s not too late to make financial contributions to those candidates who have been slugging it out through their campaigns for office up till these last days and hours.


Over the past 35 days, we’ve highlighted FIVE amazing candidates who are champions of justice. Mark Takano for Congress (CA-41), Pete Gallego for Congress (TX-23), Richard Carmona for Senate (AZ), Michael Tubbs for Stockton City Council, and Lilia Alvarez for Maricopa County Board of Supervisors are just five of the many candidates endorsed and financially supported by PAC+ in seven states across this country in our first year as a national network of progressive donors.

We set out this year to make a difference in some of the places where our data-based analysis indicates that the changing demographics present the opportunity to flip those places from Red to Blue, or where we had the opportunity to deepen the shades of blue. Arizona, Georgia, Texas, and parts of California are poised for change. Whether that change sweeps over these places this year or next, nobody learned how to add in first grade will deny that change there is inevitable. These candidates are paving the way toward that change, and ensuring that we don’t just sit and wait for that change to come. By highlighting the potential in these places and investing the pooled resources of our PAC+ members in these places, we are pushing, pulling, shoving, and dragging these places into the future. And when we close our eyes to imagine what that future looks like, we see Blue.

With your help, we can get there even sooner. See you at the ballot box!
