A Tale of Two Votes

Update: The two leaders in the Mapchangers Contest, John Courage and Bill Winter, have posted an open letter to Mark Warner requesting that he agree to do fundraisers for both of them. Sounds like a win/win to me.

Both these gentlemen are great candidates, facing particularly odious incumbents. Time for Lamar and Tancredo to retire to their lucrative lobbying careers.

As previously reported here, John Courage made it into the final round of Mark Warner's Mapchanger contest.

Today is the final day of voting. At this moment, thanks to the support of Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Chris Bell, who asked his supporters to vote for John rather than split the Texas vote, John is leading the votes.

If you haven't yet voted, please do so now.

If you have voted, please encourage your friends to get behind this united Texas ticket. It will benefit all of the TDPs candidates, because the Courage campaign has committed the first $15k raised from the Warner fundraiser to finance development of internet tools available statewide.

(There may be a further development to report on this morning regarding Mapchangers. I'll let you know as soon as I hear details.)

And there's another chance to cast a vote that will bring money and a higher profile to Texas. Barbara Ann Radnofsky is in the mix for support from Senator Barbara Boxer's PAC for a Change.

Winning this endorsement will mean a fundraising email sent out by Senator Boxer in support of BAR that will not only generate much needed campaign cash, but further raise Texas profile as a place where the Democratic action is.

You know what to do.
