Ask John Edwards to help Darcy Burner

Darcy Burner needs your support today to let John Edwards know she has a huge base of grassroots (and netroots) support. Edwards' One America PAC will be throwing its weight behind a select number of candidates chosen by its supporters:

The tide is turning in Democrats' favor. We have a strong chance of winning back the House in the 2006 elections. I've been working hard, traveling the country, and have already raised more than $6.65 million for Democrats. I've attended fundraisers for strong congressional candidates in more than a dozen states this election cycle and I'm committed to helping as many candidates as possible before November. Now, I'm looking to the One America online community to tell me which competitive races should be my primary focus.

Today, I'm launching One America Votes. This fall, I will headline fundraisers for two Democrats running for the House who have been selected by our online community. You - the voters - can choose candidates in any of the districts targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The DCCC has targeted critical races where extra help can make a real difference in November. We need to hear from you by Friday, August 4th.
Please cast your vote for Darcy now.

In related news, Darcy officially filed to run for office today, declaring:
I firmly believe we need a representative in this district who will hold the Bush Administration accountable and take our country in a new direction. We need someone focused on the priorities of families here at home, not the special interests in D.C.
That's for sure. There are too few people in our nation's capitol who truly care about their constitutents. The 8th should be represented by someone who does. And that person is Darcy.
