Got time? Please read on...
On Election Day, you put Jerry McNerney over the top.
Your time, your energy, and yes -- your dollars -- produced an overwhelming Democratic primary victory, building significant momentum towards defeating Richard Pombo in November and taking back Congress.
Even though Jerry's most formidable opponent spent nearly *twice as much money* in the primary, Jerry garnered nearly *twice as many votes*. This was a tremendous accomplishment for the grassroots -- for all the people who have worked so hard over the last two years to dial and door-knock Jerry's campaign to victory.
Now Jerry needs your help to put him over the top again. And all it takes is a couple of clicks.
Please take less than ONE minute of your time right now to vote for JERRY MCNERNEY in Democracy for America's "Grassroots All-Star" Congressional campaign competition.
After you vote, please forward this message to your friends, family and neighbors!
This endorsement vote is very important to Jerry's campaign. As you know, Democracy for America (DFA) is an influential national organization committed to supporting fiscally responsible, socially progressive candidates at all levels of government and building the Democratic Party from the bottom-up.
DFA is hosting an online vote, the "Grassroots All-Star" competition, to determine which Congressional candidate will receive their next coveted "DFA-List" endorsement. That endorsement will raise the profile or Jerry's campaign nationally -- and raise the funds necessary to defeat Richard Pombo in November
Can you help Jerry become DFA's next "Grassroots All-Star"?
As soon as you vote, please forward this message to your friends, family and neighbors!
Voting for the first round will close on FRIDAY at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (5 p.m. EST). The top *five* candidates will advance to an instant run-off round starting on June 19 to determine DFA's next DFA-List candidate.
According to DFA's Field Director, right now Jerry is in 6th place -- just 50 votes behind!
Your vote counts! It only takes a couple of clicks to show DFA and Democrats from coast to coast that our campaign is fueled by the most incredible renewable energy resource around -- you!
Once your vote is counted, please forward this message to your friends, family and neighbors!
