26. 2 Groups ready to take on the DLC / Bluedogs
"The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is filling this void providing needed infrastructure and strategic advice early to progressive candidates so they can run first-class campaigns and win. And when PCCC-endorsed candidates get elected by working hand-in-hand with the progressive movement, theyll trust the political instincts of progressives and be sturdy allies as we work with them to pass a bold progressive agenda."

"Leading progressives are putting congressional Democrats on notice that they will recruit and support primary challenges to vulnerable incumbents who become more responsive to corporate America than to their constituents. Accountability Now, which was co-founded by Jane Hamsher of, draws its inspiration from the way in which former Rep. Al Wynn, D-Md., was ousted from office in 2007 by current Rep. Donna Edwards, a more liberal Democrat, who portrayed Wynn as beholden to corporate interests."
