I live in Maryland, and I'm working here on our elections and issues. So why am I writing to you about a candidate running in Florida? It's not a tough decision for me. I am psyched that Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and Bernie Sanders endorsed progressive activist Tim Canova for Congress because he's standing up against Pay To Play politics in the Democratic Party. Help him win his primary showdown in Florida this Tuesday, August 30th.
Please join us now in donating generously to Tim Canova–the highly qualified challenger facing former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (DWS) in Florida's 23rd Congressional District. Money tight? Then contact Mike Fox to help us get out the vote with our phone team.
PDA is the insurgency working inside and outside the Democratic Party. We know that it's not enough to elect just any Democrat to office. Some are Democrats in Name Only. We must demand and strongly support progressive candidates for every campaign, from president to precinct chair.
As an activist, attorney, educator, and critic of the rigged economic and political systems, Tim Canova is uniquely positioned to shake up Congress. We need him working for we the people against the big money special interests, but the Super PACs and special interests don't want Tim to win. Can you help by donating generously now? Money tight? Then contact Mike Fox to get involved making easy but important Get Out The Vote calls.
Tim Canova’s campaign is calling on us to help him counter a flood of money from a Super PAC that’s “spending a rumored $180,000 per day in advertising to support Wasserman-Schultz and her re-election campaign.” Will you step up now to help Tim overcome the oligarchs? Please join us now in donating generously to Tim Canova!
According to a recent Tim Canova for Congress email, the Super PAC is “bankrolled by a wealthy hedge fund manager [who is] one of the mega-donors who was exposed in the Panama Papers for avoiding taxes and shielding his wealth from our government in a Virgin Islands-based shell company.”
Personifying the big money politics we’ve seen since the Citizen’s United decision, this billionaire “has spent nearly $15 million this year alone” according to Tim’s campaign. Please step up now to help balance the scales by donating generously now to help Tim win. We understand if you can't afford the cash, but if you can't contribute money, then please contact Mike Fox to get involved with our phone team.
Stand up against the special interests and Super PACs by donating generously now! Money tight? Then contact Mike Fox to help us get out the vote with our phone team.
In solidarity and with appreciation,
Mike Hersh for Donna, Judy, Mike F., Janis, Deb, Kimberly, and Dan–your National PDA team
