Thom Hartmann and DUer Omaha Steve inspired me to run for office & I'm asking for DU support

Thom Hartmann suggested in a program several years ago that we progressives need to step up, step out of our comfort zone and run for local offices....he said, "If not you, who? If not now, when?" Now I first heard those phrases decades ago but it hit me differently when Thom said them specifically about running for office...I think seeing Omaha Steve share about his running for office, about his campaign that I began to think for the first time about my running for office. I'm grateful to both these men. I want to see more DUers run for office and I hope this makes them think about it.

Our county has the County Commissioner whose video Trump shared saying, "The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat." We haven't elected a Democrat in over 25 years so Democrats quit running. I have been active in the county and state Democratic Party for a little less time than I've been a member of DU (since 2003). I have been very active in recruiting other Democrats to run and this year we have a full ticket: 2 state senators, 2 state representatives (our county is split into multiple Districts, a County Commissioner, County Treasurer and County Clerk.

Donations made to my campaign will fund a combined campaign where I will very actively work for one of the most challenged US Congresswoman, Xochitl Torres Small...she's running in a very tight race. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/committee-to-elect-denise-lang-browne-1

6. You've been on DU since 2003.

At this point, I may easily assume that you understand this disorganized party, its factions, its values, and American politics, in general. Youíll do fine.
