Ads the GOP wants to hide from Voters!


This could be a game changer.

When news broke Wednesday that Senator Mitch McConnell and fellow right-wing Senate candidates Joni Ernst, Cory Gardner, and Tom Cotton were caught on tape pandering to a roomful of right-wing billionaires like Charles and David Koch, MoveOn members swung into action.

Within 48 hours—thanks to thousands of small-dollar contributions from MoveOn members—we were able to release two new 30-second TV ads introducing the real Ernst—a Tea Party candidate hoping to take progressive Tom Harkin’s Senate seat in Iowa —and McConnell to their constituents.1 2 The Des Moines Register called Ernst’s comments “evidence that Ernst is beholden to billionaires.”3 The Washington Post said the ad “signals how the revelation will be used against other GOP candidates.”4

 
This may be Ernst and McConnell’s “47% moment.” Their comments, caught on tape, could risk their election—just as Mitt Romney sparked voter backlash and outrage after he called 47% of Americans freeloading victims in 2012—but only if we make this moment one that voters will remember when they go to the polls.

Can you take a moment to watch MoveOn’s ad targeting Senator Mitch McConnell and share it with everyone you know?

If further proof was needed that Ernst and McConnell have been hand-picked by the Koch brothers to advance their extreme policy agenda, this is it.

With your help, we’ll be able to turn these leaked recordings into a political liability for Ernst, McConnell, and others beholden to the ultra right-wing, ultra-wealthy Koch network.

Thanks for all you do.

meet Bruce Braley, Democratic Party ~ Iowa


http://youtu.be/0oO7MeN_kgM

Lots of Democrats are facing tough challenges in this year’s elections — including my friend Bruce Braley in Iowa.

He’s running in a dead heat with his Tea Party-backed opponent and facing millions in outside spending in the state. But I know Bruce, and he’s not one to back down from a fight. No matter what the odds.

As a Congressman, he has been on the front lines of the battle to make college more affordable, he’s advocated for raising the federal minimum wage, and no one has been a stronger champion for our veterans than Bruce.

Bruce and his team need to hit a $65,000 goal before their FEC deadline in 7 days — and they could use our help. Can you give $5 or more today?

Bruce is on the front lines in the battle for control of the Senate. And the Tea Party and the Koch brothers are backing one of the most radical candidates of the election cycle — Bruce’s GOP opponent.

We cannot let the Tea Party take over Iowa. We need to back Bruce because he’ll help us keep control of the Senate.

Help me give Bruce and his grassroots team a leg up. Contribute $5 or more to make sure they reach their $65,000 before the FEC deadline.

Thank you.

Harry

WA meet Tami Green, Democratic Party


There’s a lot to be excited about this year –

Tami Green is running for State Senate in the 28th District

Click here and say:
I’m with Tami

We have a great opportunity to unseat one of the most conservative voices in the State Senate.

In his one year in office, State Senator Steve O’Ban has led efforts to allow businesses to deny services to gays and lesbians.

He’s worked to allow insurance companies to deny coverage for basic services, like mammograms, diabetes, and autism screenings.

Our state needs leaders who will move our state forward.

Rep. Tami Green has been representing the 28th District for 10 years. She has a strong record of accomplishment in the 28th District, and she is challenging Steve O’Ban for State Senate.

Will you sign our petition and show your support for Tami Green for State Senate?

Tami Green is a trusted nurse and legislative leader known for her integrity, courage, and willingness to bring people together.

In her 10 years in the Legislature, Tami has earned a strong reputation as an experienced leader who is focused on results.

She is a strong advocate for the values we share. She’s worked to strengthen the middle class, protect our environment, expand access to health care, and protect a woman’s right to choose.

With Republicans in power in the State Senate, we haven’t gotten the results that will help Washington’s working families.

This year, the Republican State Senate majority refused to compromise and failed to pass a Transportation or Capitol Budget. This has killed jobs and hurt our middle class.

Steve O’Ban was in step with the State Senate majority the entire way.

We need to elect leaders who are willing to come to the table, get to work, and do what’s best for our communities and working families.

We need Tami Green in the State Senate. Join us now and sign on as a supporter today.

In solidarity,

Jaxon Ravens
Washington State Democrats Chair

Tea Party Express Interviews Mike Rounds About U.S. Senate Race

Posted 11.8.13

During a recent interview with the Tea Party Express, Mike Rounds talked about the upcoming U.S. Senate Race. With record-low approval ratings for the President and Congress, Rounds discussed his plan for getting

On February 22, 2006, the state legislature of South Dakota passed an act banning all medical abortions except those necessary to save the mother’s life (see double effect). Rounds signed the act on March 6 and the ban was to have taken effect on July 1, 2006, but never did because of a court challenge. A referendum for a potential repeal of H.B. 1215 was placed on the ballot for the November 2006 statewide election due to a successful petition.[12] On May 30, over 38,000 signatures were filed, more than twice the 17,000 required to qualify. The law was ultimately repealed by voters on November 7, 2006, the day of Rounds’ re-election.[13]
