John Courage in DC: Day 3 Morning Update

Day three already? Last night was a who’s who of decorated Democratic Veterans. Men and woman across the country came together and we were lucky enough to be with them.

Senator John Kerry and General Wesley Clark stopped by and said hello. Russ Feingold announced to the room that John Courage is the Progressive Patriot because of the amazing support across the country and his open embrace of new tactics like the internet.

We are running a different campaign and even the Washington insiders can tell.

Today we are in nearly a dozen meetings again and John’s motto has been, “keep’em coming. We can in eat in San Antonio.”

We are moving fast in this city and talking to labor, lawyers, activists, educators, and insiders.

We are talking about saving social security through solvency not destruction, ensuring that all of those that need health coverage can get it, and supporting the rights of workers whether they are teachers, custodians, bus drivers, and small business men and women.

Jamie-

Yes...and YES!

We received a commitment from IBEW this morning (feels like forever ago) for $10,000. Yes, you read that correctly. They also committed to doing a fundraiser at their BEAUTIFUL rooftop facility when we return in March..
