2006 Endorsements

My wife and I have made donations to the following campaigns:
  • Lois Murphy, Democrat for Congress in the 6th District of Pennsylvania (all or parts of: Montgomery, Chester, Berks, and Lehigh Counties)
  • Michael R. Arcuri, Democrat for Congress in the 24th District of New York (all or parts of: Seneca, Tompkins, Cayuga, Cortland, Tioga, Broome, Chenango, Otsego, Herkimer, and Oneida Counties)
  • Jim Webb, Democrat for U.S. Senator from Virginia
  • Claire C. McCaskill, Democrat for U.S. Senator from Missouri
  • Sherrod Brown, Democrat for U.S. Senator from Ohio
We have refrained from donating to the campaigns of any candidates who are:
  • anti-abortion
  • opposed to the estate tax
  • unwilling to outlaw the use of torture (this explains the absence of Bob Menendez from the list above)
The Democratic Party is running some candidates in key races whose positions on the issues listed above have prevented us from donating any money to them. We'd probably still vote for such candidates, but we aren't going to give them any money.

Congratulations on all of your choices winning. Must have been quite a celebration.

I wish it were. We working stiffs can't stay-up too late on school nights. Let's hope the Democrats don't roll-over too often for the Idiot-In-Chief and his minions.
