Suzan DelBene added to Daily Kos' "Orange to Blue" fundraising list

This morning, our good friend Joan McCarter announced over on Daily Kos that Suzan DelBene has been added to "Orange to Blue", a national list of netroots-endorsed candidates maintained by Kos Media.

The list exists to help worthy progressive Democrats running in federal races raise money from the netroots community.

I extend my congratulations to Suzan for this much-deserved honor, as do NPI's other staff... in the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that all of us are, as individual activists, supporters of (and volunteers for) Suzan.

Because NPI is a tax-exempt nonprofit, we do not endorse office-seekers, or participate in fundraising efforts for candidates. So, while we can provide coverage of the contest in WA-08 here on The Advocate, we can't join Joan's call to action. However, if you'd like to hear her pitch for why Suzan is deserving of netroots support, you are welcome to click over to Daily Kos.

Suzan was also recently endorsed by The Seattle Times and The Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The News Tribune, the other major daily that circulates within the 8th Congressional District, has endorsed Dave Reichert.
