You Told Us Who to Love...

And we're listening. Last weekend, I asked for you to help us at Clintonistas for Obama create the perfect ActBlue list. And guess what? Thanks to your help, I think we've created something quite remarkable!

Here are the full results...

Barack Obama (President) $
Hillary Clinton (President) $
Debbie Cook (CA-46) $
Jeanne Shaheen (NH-Sen) $
Kay Hagan (NC-Sen) $
Jeff Merkley (OR-Sen) $
Dina Titus (NV-03) $
Darcy Burner (WA-08) $
Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-01) $
Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24) $
Linda Stender (NJ-07) $
Christine Jennings (FL-13) $
Martin Heinrich (NM-01) $
Gary Peters (MI-09) $
Charlie Brown (CA-04) $
Glenn Nye (VA-02) $
WesPAC - Securing America's Future $

These are our new C4O All-Stars! These are the candidates who we think:

1. Best embody Barack Obama's message of change
2. Best represent Hillary Clinton's strong progressive values
3. Have a terrific shot of winning this fall

We listened to your suggestions on which races we should pay attention to. We did our own research on which races are truly winnable. And today, we've come up with a list of terrific candidates who we think will make great additions to the 111th Congress! While I don't have enough time to talk about all of these candidates, I'd like to highlight some of our new additions.

Martin Heinrich is an awesomely progressive Albuquerque City Council member who has a great shot at turning this red New Mexico district blue once and for all. Glenn Nye knows what real patriotism looks like, and he's a true patriot who will make Southeast Virginia proud. Linda Stender nearly upset the entrenched far-right GOP incumbent in this moderate New Jersey district in 2006, and she has what it takes to finish the job in 2008. Ann Kirkpatrick has changed people's lives for the better in the Arizona Legislature, and she's looking to make more positive change as Northern Arizona's representative to Congress. And finally, I must mention proud veteran Gary Peters in Michigan and smart businesswoman Suzanne Kosmas in Florida.

I can guarantee you that if we support these & all our other fantastic C4O All-Star Democrats, we'll see real change for the better in Congress next year. I'm doing all I can for Debbie Cook here in Southern California because I know she's a true-blue agent of change. I urge all of you to support your local Democratic candidates as well.

Take a look at our list, and see if we have a candidate listed near you. Donate. Volunteer. Just go out and get active! You told us who to love, so let's all work together to make sure they win! :-)

We wanted to thank you for the support! We've been busy on the campaign trail here in NC working our hardest to replace Elizabeth Dole with a true leader North Carolinians can be proud of. Kay is currently on the road touring a wind power plant today and discussing her energy plan in NW North Carolina. Thanks again!

Please please please remove Ann Kirkpatrick from this list. It breaks my heart, as a strong Hillary supporter now backing Obama, to see Kirkpatrick included in this list. She is NOT progressive. She does not support universal health care or gay rights. She was in the Arizona State Legislature where she accomplished nothing and then left office mid-term to run for higher office. Please remove her. She's still in a primary election and will hopefully lose to the true democrat and progressive who's running against her.
