For Every Democratic Congressional Candidate

There is is a new discussion group available to Democratic Congressional Candidates challenging the enrenched Republican incumbents. Democrats are committed to winning back the U.S. House of Representatives. Unfortunately, there are Congressional Districts with a Democratic candidate challenging the entrenched Republican incumbent and the persistent perception that the democratic challenger has no chance of winning. Therefore, the person receives little or no national support. For the most part, the situation leaves a candidate entirely on his/her own. All the skills needed for waging an effective campaign fall on the shoulders of the person who decides to step into the arena.

There is now another networking resource available to all Democratic Congressional Candidates.

Cynthia Pooler, the Vice Chair and Communications Director for the
Democatic Commitment Conference Political Action Committee, has established the NovemberVictory YAHOO! Discussion Group.Cynthia began the online forum in 2004 so that Democratic Congressional Candidates could network together and provide support for each other throughout the country. The online discussion network connects candidates together. It allows each of them to coordinate with one another on exactly what is working -- and what is not. It provides a resource for those who are succeeding to share the tools, techniques, and other ideas that are helping them succeed. This is a way to share the community knowledge with those who need it now -- a real-time resource for committed Democratic congressional candidates.

The current members of the online discussion network completed
three days of Washington meetings during September 13 through 15, 2005. The Democratic congressional candidates in attendance completed their unprecedented agenda with a meeting with the Democratic Congressional Candidate Committee (DCCC) leadership on Thursday morning. The candidate delegation consisted of eleven candidates from eight states. As a delegation, the group represented thirty-five candidates in twenty states.

Members of the online discussion network are now organizing a March meeting. The proposed dates are March 7, 8 and 9. This meeting will be a caucus of 30 to 50 Democratic challenger congressional candidates from across the country. The caucus will include PACs and other interest groups. The agenda will include issues facing the country with a unified message.

The issues facing us today on both the state and national level are reaching crisis proportions. The resolution of these issues needs the cooperation of those who are winning with those who are facing greater challenges in their districts. For that reason, the
NovemberVictory YAHOO! Discussion Group is a vital resource in achieving that goal.
