I have three words for you — Speaker John Boehner?


I have three words for you — Speaker John Boehner?

There is nothing — nothing — that would be a bigger setback for America than seeing right-wing corporate lapdog John Boehner take the gavel from progressive champion Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.

That’s why Republican John Boehner has earned DFA’s first Anti-Endorsement.

DFA members chose John Boehner and right-wing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to “win” the 2010 Progressive Villain Anti-Endorsements. These two represent the worst Washington D.C. has to offer. Their Republican Party is more interested in doing the bidding of corporate lobbyists and racist tea baggers to repeal, overturn or defeat President Obama at all costs than they are in doing what’s right for America.

What is an Anti-Endorsement? It’s an important part of our 50 State Strategy. DFA will make a long-term, high-priority investment in the winners’ states, including dedicating staff to increasing Democratic voter registration, campaign training, increased resources for local progressive activists and a commitment to defeat these Villains with a progressive Democrat.

Contribute to Defeat DFA’s 2010 Progressive Villains right now.

Democrats in Washington are playing defense. But we’re not. We’re committed to taking out right-wing corporate sell-outs like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell whether it takes one or two or 10 election cycles to do it.

Today, DFA is endorsing Boehner’s Democratic opponent, Justin Coussoule, for Ohio’s 8th district. We’ll contribute volunteers, money, and campaign resources to support Justin’s uphill race to defeat the House’s biggest Villain. But that’s not all we’re doing. We’re going on offense right now in races across the country to make sure we never see “Speaker John Boehner.”

Beth Krom, Bill Hedrick, Steve Pougnet, Manan Trivedi — these are four great progressive Democrats running in districts held by Republicans that President Obama won in 2008. We’re not just going to make sure Speaker Pelosi keeps a Democratic majority this fall — we’re going to send her more great progressives to build a real, progressive majority.

We’re already recruiting and training volunteers to make phone calls and knock on doors as part of the biggest grassroots campaign Democracy for America has ever run. But we can’t do it without your help. Democracy for America depends on small contributions from its members to make change happen. Contribute today to grow a more progressive majority.

Beat right-wing Republican John Boehner — Contribute $10 now.

We’re going on offense in Senate races across the country, too.

In Kentucky, we’re working hard to elect Jack Conway to beat Tea Party Republican Rand Paul. In Iowa, we’re supporting progressive champion Roxanne Conlin in her fight to unseat healthcare villain Chuck Grassley. In North Carolina, Elaine Marshall is taking on the most vulnerable Republican incumbent in the country — right-winger Richard Burr.

Mitch McConnell has worked night and day to block change, prop-up big corporations, kill legislation that works for everyday Americans and embarrass Barack Obama.

I say enough is enough — help us fight back against Mitch McConnell’s war on everyday Americans. Contribute today to elect these progressive fighters and build our long-term campaign to unseat Mitch McConnell.

Beat right-wing Republican Mitch McConnell — Contribute $10 now.

The Progressive Villain Anti-Endorsements are two of our most powerful endorsements. It’s a different kind of endorsement, and that’s because we’re a different kind of organization. Pundits might be calling this a tough election, but we won’t back down. We work and win in even the most Republican districts — just ask 2010 Progressive Hero Alan Grayson.

We’re in this for as long as it takes to unseat Republicans John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Contribute today to help make it happen.
