Jean Hay Bright, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Maine, has been campaigning on a pro-peace, anti-war platform for more than a year, but has been ignored by the media and the Washington Beltway crowd because she's opposing Olympia Snowe, who despite being one of the most pro-war, hawkish senators in Washington has been able to FOOL the media and the public by claiming she's a moderate.

But if Republican Olympia Snowe were really a moderate, she would not have voted with the Bush administration during its first four years in office 82 PERCENT OF THE TIME.

We need you to speak out now to call on Democrats all over the country to throw their support behind Jean. First, if you blog over at the Swing State Project, go over there and leave a post to nominate Jean to be one of the Netroots Candidates on their list.

Then submit the action page and express IN YOUR OWN WORDS why the DSCC (Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee) and Russ Feingold's Progressive Patriots Fund should expressly endorse and contribute to Jean's campaign. There is a link on the action page where you can find out more about what Jean Hay Bright stands for.


In truth, Olympia Snowe is a Bush-enabler who fully supports the Iraq war, the PATRIOT Act, anti-choice federal judges who would dismantle Roe v. Wade, tax cuts for the rich, elimination of the estate tax, and reduction of benefits to returning veterans, including protection from bankruptcy for the families of veterans serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Olympia Snowe opposes universal health care and opposes making the minimum wage a living wage. Her campaign is funded by contributions from defense contractors, oil companies, credit card companies, HMOs and drug companies. Her campaign, her votes and the philosophy behind them is one of destroying the average working family while working to widen the income gap in America.

Democrat Jean Hay Bright is a true grass-roots progressive. She wants to get U.S. troops and corporations out of Iraq, institute national health care, make the United States sustainably energy independent, rebuild American infrastructure and manufacturing capacity, and restore fiscal responsibility in Washington.

Maine is a small state, a blue state that supported Clinton, Gore and Kerry. Jean can win this election with 350,000 votes and only million. Her campaign has already brought unenrolled, disenfranchised Democrats back into the party. She has strong support from Democrats within the state. But the cupboard is bare, and she needs your help.

As Snowe's first women opponent, and with Snowe having voted for Alito, thousands of Democratic women who have voted for Snowe in the past will this year vote for Jean. As a commercial organic farmer, Jean has strong support in the agriculture community, and with the Maine Green Party, which is not running a U.S. Senate candidate in this race.

Recent surveys show 75 percent of Maine voters don't think the Iraq war is worth the cost and casualties it has produced. Jean's anti-war credentials are as good as those of Kucinich, Feingold, Conyers, or Lamont. She also has the support of many veterans and veterans groups, who know she will fight for veteran's rights and health care.

There is a perfect storm brewing this year, forging a movement to oust the Republican ideology that is destroying the fabric of our nation. People are beginning to understand that for many reasons, from national security to individual freedom, this country needs to replace six sitting Republicans senators with six Democrats.

Jean Hay Bright can be one of those Democrats.

YOU can help make that happen. Get the word out and the money will follow.

This race is WINNABLE, but only if the progressive community gets behind her. Please support Jean TODAY.

Thank you.


This alert is brought to you through the activism of Jean Hay Bright, running for the U.S. Senate, and one of the leading progressive voices in the state of Maine. Jean wants to start running call to action radio spots to call her constituents to action on all the issue we care about.


Nobody can predict how a particular race will turn out. But we know that the spots we ran on impeachment had tremendous secondary impact, as TWO other groups were inspired to run their own call to action ads on this issue as a result of the investment we made in this action. If you are able to do so, please make whatever donation you can to continue the stand we are taking on issue after issue.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
