Alaska State representative David Guttenberg (D- 8th District) beat teabagger Joe Miller in 2004. Here’s a bit of his advice to Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, who is tightening the race against Miller:

Leadership in both parties has kept any kind of investigation into these government sponsored entities (GSEs) from happening. But Dennis Kuchinch is the Chairman of the Domestic Policy Subcommittee of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and he just doesn’t give a fuck.
It’s the right thing to do and it puts him in the driver’s seat. Good for Dennis.

We’ve started a fundraising page at ActBlue to thank Dennis for taking this bold step, and doing it quickly. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to leadership, the White House and the banks like that. GSEs are going to be much in the news in the upcoming year and he is announcing that he will be setting the agenda, not standing on the sidelines for a coverup.

Well she talked a good game, but in the end, Blanche Lincoln blinked. She didn’t take me up on my dare to filibuster health care. She’ll get another when the cloture vote on the final bill comes up, but for now, she says she’ll allow debate to proceed.
But I get the feeling she didn’t like our ad:

Blanche Lincoln is addressing the Senate right now. She’s touting the Senate Finance Committee bill – which she voted for, by the way. She wants the final bill to be closer to the “common-sense, deficit-reducing bill” in the Senate Finance Committee, and that she will work hard to do that. That seems to tip that she’ll vote to proceed debate, since otherwise, could you fix the bill at all? We’ll know in a moment.

Yes, Blanche isn’t even sure she’ll let health care be debated on the floor of the Senate, let alone allowing to go to a vote. Evidently her office hasn’t got the memo that the public option is more popular than Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas.
We need $30,000 to put organizers on the ground in Arkansas to start finding support for a primary challenge to Blanche Lincoln. Already 522 people have donated more than $18,000 to meet this goal.
Now that Blanche Lincoln is holding health care hostage from even being debated, it’s clear she needs to hear our message as soon as possible.
