Election 2012

Make Oregon’s 1st a peace district

Tomorrow, voters in Oregon’s first district will vote in a special election to decide who will fight for their priorities in Washington, DC.

In 2012 we will see major fights in Congress to roll back wasteful military spending and fund needs in our communities. Please donate to Suzanne Bonamici’s campaign so she can carry that message to Congress.

State Senator Suzanne Bonamici faces a tough battle in the special election to replace Rep. David Wu. Last week, week, Republicans released a poll showing her opponent was polling within 5 points in this Democratic-leaning district. Republicans nationwide are responding by pouring money into the district to try to add to their majority in the House.

Last year, we made tremendous progress in building opposition in Congress to the costly war in Afghanistan, but with the Pentagon pushing back against any additional military withdrawals, we need allies  now more than ever. Suzanne’s campaign is launching a major grassroots effort to get out the vote in these last critical days. Can you donate $10 to help them reach voters this week?

Over the years, I have seen the real difference it makes in our work to have partners we helped elect sitting in Congress, working with us to change the way we do foreign policy. Please donate today to help Suzanne Bonamici get to DC.
