Over at Joe Trippi’s Change for America, he writes —
I think it is great to think about running good people seeking change at the local level — but I also think once we find someone at the local level we want to put out a national alert to all who care about our cause and get that candidate the support they need to beat this system.
Well, one of those people is Ro Khanna, running for Congress in my old home district in California (the 12th district). Ro is young, a summa cum laude graduate from U. Chicago and Yale Law, and is trying to unseat a 12-term incumbent Democrat who was a co-sponsor in Congress for Bush’s war resolution in Iraq. A number of good friends are working on his campaign, and if you’re in the 12th, get involved. If you’re not, follow Joe’s advice and send Ro a little money. Doesn’t have to be much. But every bit will help get a young, bright, progressive individual in Congress who can stand up for what’s right.
