Jerry McNerney: The Newest Progressive Patriot
At YearlyKos, Russ Feingold held a special Pick a Progressive Patriot vote to see which candidate would be awarded $5,000 from the Progressive Patriot Fund. I'm pleased to announce that Jerry McNerney came in first place. This is really important because the biggest thing Jerry McNerney needs now is money. If he raises a sufficient amount of money, the DCCC won't be able to walk away from this race. So thank you to all of you who voted in the Progressive Patriot Fund vote. This is an important and timely win for Team McNerney. Furthermore, everyone who is interested in fighting Pombo should make a donation, and make a donation today. Giving today will help prove McNerney's viability and will draw in more money from across the country.
Here's what the Progressive Patriot Fund said:
The Progressive Patriots Fund announced Jerry McNerney as the winner of “Pick a Progressive Patriot: YearlyKos,” a special round of its popular online voting event. McNerney is challenging Rep. Richard Pombo in California’s 11 District.
“This round of the ‘Pick a Progressive Patriot’ was a huge success,” Feingold said. “Over 50 candidates were nominated from 24 states, but in the end McNerney received the most support from a very enthusiastic group of bloggers and online activists. We are happy to send $5000 to the McNerney campaign and we thank everyone who participated in this round of ‘Pick a Progressive Patriot.’”
