In the 8th Congressional District of Washington State the one term Republican Congressman Dave Reichert who is the Chairman of the House subcommittee on Emergency Prepareness, Science and Technology is having his political applecart upset by the very energetic challenger Darcy Burner.
A progressive fireball who gets it. Jobs, education, healthcare and getting our troops home from Iraq are what's important to her, just like it is to the rest of us.
Darcy spoke recently at the DNC Fall Meetings in Chicago. A rousing speech followed by a thunderous standing ovation heralded a rising star in the Democratic Party and a voice for the progressive movement that is spreading across the nation. A clip of her address can be seen here.
If you live in the 8th district of Washington state or if you can help Darcy, please visit her website.
Remember there is an election Nov 7th, we can make a difference, but only if we register and vote. Go Darcy!
