Today is National Blogosphere Day, and the official honoree of the good people who started this tradition is the website ActBlue. I've used ActBlue a lot, and am very impressed with the organization and how it's operated.
To celebrate this day and take a tentative first step into the 2008 fire fight we're facing here in North Carolina, I've created an official ActBlueNC fundraising page to serve as a clearinghouse for worthy federal and state candidates in North Carolina. I've included Marshall Adame, Larry Kissell, Brad Miller and David Price on my inaugural list, but plan to add others as the various fields become clear. For example, the minute Grier Martin declares for Senate, I'll add him to our ActBlueNC page.
I'm not asking for contributions at this stage, I'm just letting you know the plan. In the months ahead, we'll want to expand our list with worthy progressives, and then we'll want to spread the word about this convenient way individual citizens can make a difference for North Carolina.
BlueNC is dedicated to freedom and fairness for the people of North Carolina. If you share that vision, welcome. If your intention is to disrupt our efforts, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
