While DNC Chair Howard Dean is implementing a 50-state strategy at the highest levels of the Democratic Party, we here at DFA are revitalizing progressive politics from the ground up. We've made great strides in 2005, but still have a lot to do in the coming months and years. Yet, as Gov. Dean stated in The Hill today, "Democrats will win the House and Senate in 2006 as long we continue to send a strong message and fight for what is right." So let's roll up our sleeves and continue the fight to take our country back!
More from Gov. Dean's article:The early results in California, Virginia and New Jersey are good. Local races in St. Louis, Parkersburg and Minnesota, where we picked up seats that had been Republican for up to 58 years, are even better.
This is a solid beginning, but there is more we must do. Cutting the fundraising advantage the other party enjoys from 3-1 to 2-1 is good but not good enough. Sticking together on the budget and supporting Rep. John Murtha's (D-Pa.) great courage are good starts, but we need to continue to work together on judicial nominations, environmental legislation, trade and jobs to send effectively the message that we are again ready to lead the American people with purpose and in a fundamentally new direction.
In 2006, Democrats will take back the House and the Senate. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have done an excellent job recruiting strong candidates, and we are already investing in the local infrastructure to ensure they win. But the key to winning is running a national campaign based on our different vision and the themes that Democrats around the country have put forward....
Together, America can do better. And in 2006, the Democrats will lead America to do just that.
