Join the Battle of Wisconsin

My friend (and a MULO Alumnus) sent the following–please follow his advice:

Jim Holperin needs our help… and he needs it now. As you all know, Holperin is the Democratic Senator from Eagle River, one of the Fab 14, who is the most vulnerable Democrat facing recall. It is looking increasingly likely that on July 12, the Democrats will win back the State Senate (likely, not certain… we all have to keep pushing…). But it is also looking increasingly likely that we will lose it again the following month when Holperin’s election comes.

You can imagine what the Koch-crowd will do if we retake the Senate in July: money will come pouring in from all over the country to take it right back. It’s not a lost cause: the District is fairly evenly divided. The keys to victory will be what they always are: money and turnout.

If you’re reading this, you’re a friend of mine. If you’re a friend of mine, you don’t have money like the Koch brothers. But there’s only two Koch brothers, and I have lots of friends, each of whom has lots of friends. We can beat these people if we all do even just a little bit. I’m putting up $50 right now, and will throw a bit more each payday.

Click on the Act Blue link below, and please do what you can. Whether it’s $5 or $500, every little bit helps. Oh, and please… share this link – and, if you like, this appeal – widely.
