Brad Miller for Senate (please)

For those who missed it, Chuck Schumer came to DailyKos asking for names to recruit for Senate. This isnt much different from what Jerry Meek did a few months ago. But, included in his post was this small link.

So, you want Brad Miller to run for Senate? You want the DSCC to help out? Contact them.

This is my email:

Brad Miller would be a great candidate to put forward against Elizabeth Dole in North Carolina. The 2006 election cycle showed that candidates who understand the middle class can win no matter where they are. From Red Montana to Purple Ohio we saw candidates with strong, progressive messages win. Elizabeth Dole is the most vulnerable Republican currently running. She is already having to beg for cash from her fellow Republican Senators. We have a chance to put a nail in her coffin, while giving our party's nominee a great shot at an extra 15 electoral votes. I know that there has been an effort to run Mike Easley against her. I also know that he has said no. I would reccomend walking away from him. We can win in the south with Democrats without acting like Republicans. All it needs is a strong candidate with a good message. Brad Miller understands the middle class. He understands North Carolina. If you convinced him to run he would instantly become the favorite netroots candidate, ensuring hundreds of volunteers from across the country. I hope you will consider him.

Feel free to copy and paste.

Talking points

Blue, I'm going to chime in - hope not being a Dem doesn't weed my comments out.

I know why I like Miller, but maybe you should prepare some "talking points" so that others can focus in on the big ticket items.

good suggestion

I havent done it because of time considerations. This was a "put a post together as quickly as you can" situation.

A list of reasons why Miller is the best option is in order, sadly other concerns must come first.
