Governor Howard Dean, M.D.:

I have been in politics for a long time now and I have never seen more extreme candidates than the ones being pushed today by Sarah Palin.

They’re not just attacking the work President Obama has done — they’re attacking our social safety net and the building blocks of the modern middle class. They want to kill Social Security and Medicare, abolish the minimum wage and end unemployment assistance. Some have even questioned basic civil rights.

Candidates like Joe Miller, Rand Paul and Christine O’Donnell are pushing an agenda that is more extreme than Bush and Cheney’s ever was.

But we can stop them. We have a chance to beat two of Sarah Palin’s top candidates with progressive fighters and pick up two seats in the United States Senate — one in New Hampshire with progressive champion Paul Hodes and one in Palin’s own home state of Alaska with small town fighter Scott McAdams.

Join me and help beat two of Sarah Palin’s top candidates — contribute $10 to each right now.

In New Hampshire, progressive Congressman Paul Hodes is in a tough race against Kelly Ayotte.

Just last month, Ayotte won a hard-fought primary after winning Palin’s endorsement. She calls herself a “moderate” but she has the support of right-wing Republicans and she’d vote lockstep with Mitch McConnell and Jim DeMint in the United States Senate.

Paul Hodes is a fighter for the people of New Hampshire. In the House of Representatives last year, he stood up for people and against corporations every time. He fought for healthcare reform with a public option, tough climate change legislation and Wall Street reform.

Paul is a friend of mine, and he is exactly the sort of progressive fighter we need in the U.S. Senate. Join me today and elect a people-powered Senator.

Contribute $10 now to elect a real progressive.

Then there’s Scott McAdams in Alaska. Two months ago, talking heads in the media said this race was in the bag for Republican Lisa Murkowski. But then she lost the primary to far right Republican Joe Miller after he received Sarah Palin’s endorsement.

Now, Miller is on the ballot as a Republican and Murkowski is running as an independent, splitting the vote on the right. This has kicked Scott’s campaign into high gear, giving Democrats a chance to pick up another Senate seat in a so-called “red state.”

Scott’s a small town mayor and a former school board member. He’s fought for kids in the classroom and the people in his community for years. He’ll go the extra mile to stand up for Alaskans and for middle class Americans everywhere. Now, we need to have his back to put him over the top on Election Day.

Contribute now to elect progressive fighter Scott McAdams.

These elections are going to be close, but we can win them and pick up two Senate seats. Join the campaigns today to make it happen.

Thank you, Margot, because working together, we’re unstoppable.
