Post-Election Message from DNC Chair DWS

0 Comment

Hello fellow DNC Member, I’m not going to gloss over the facts: on Tuesday, the Republicans had a good night. We didn’t. We worked hard for months, we even won a few tough races, but it wasn’t enough.  Sometimes, you work your heart out, leave it all on the field and still come up short.

A bunch of Senate and Governor’s races coming down to the wire – make sure you vote! Christie is a jerk; young people agree with Democrats; immigration reform; and a nice reference to the DPVA press release re taxes and the GOP candidate in 10th District race. read more →

I get these weekly and try to post them, but I got behind, and frankly I’ve been spending more time on Twitter (@DemRulz) or Facebook (Frank Leone) than on this blog, so here is an archives of the ones from the last few months I haven’t posted (except October 3, which I apparently never received).  I’ll try to do better going forward. Today’s Update (Oct. 24, 2014) features the shootings in Canada, Obama’s campaigning, and dumb stuff GOP Presidential candidates Christie, Paul, and Pence say or do.                read more →
