Help support Chris Murphy
As my regular reader are aware, I'm a big fan of Chris Murphy. He's the 5th CD Democratic candidate whos currently giving Rep. Nancy Johnson a serious run for her money.
Well, Ned Lamont is giving Murphy a helping hand by giving his fellow Democrat his full support and doing what he can to help Murphy give Johnson her pink slip.
On August 8, Connecticut Democrats voted for change in Washington.
The Democratic Party nomination for U.S. Senate carries with it a special responsibility. We are electing a coalition for change, and our organization will work in concert with Connecticut candidates promoting a message of progress at home, and abroad.
In Connecticut 's 5th Congressional District, Democrat Chris Murphy is running against rubber-stamp Republican Congresswoman Nancy Johnson, who has been part of the problem in Washington for 24 years.
We've built a sizable online community over the past six months, and today we are asking you to support our campaign, and our Party, by helping Chris Murphy. Can you make a $20, $50, or $100 contribution to his campaign today?
Republican Nancy Johnson and Lieberman Party candidate Joe Lieberman have a lot in common these days.
They share a "stay the course" message on the war in Iraq . Their support for the Bush/Cheney Energy Policy and campaign contributions from those who profit from high gas prices have Americans paying the price at the pump. And they are both funding massive GOTV operations aimed at driving Republicans to the polls.
But our Democratic coalition for change will prevail because of the strength of our grassroots and netroots support. Can you help send Chris to Congress with Ned Lamont by making a contribution today?
Fifteen seats. That's all we need to get a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives eager to ask President Bush the tough questions on foreign and domestic policy -- one that will serve as a check on the last two years of the Bush-Cheney Administration.
Chris Murphy's campaign is poised to be one of those fifteen seats that the Democratic Party can pick up this year. He is a rising star, and it will be an honor to work hand in hand with him next year, bringing much needed change to Washington , D.C.
For more information on Murphy, let me take you back in time and check out a eariler post of mine when urphy was nominated the Democratic Congressional candidate for the 5CD.
Murphy wants to keep on a positive note distancing himself from the negative attacks that have been launched against Johnson in the media. Although I don't see a problem highlighting the hyprocisy of Johnson nor do I have a problem attakcing politicians (it's pretty obvious), one must respect the way Murphy is running his campaign and hopefully voters will notice this as well during as the election season heats up.
Watch Chris Murphy in aciton...
