Published on

Democrats in Washington are playing defense, but DFA is playing offense. The 50 State Strategy elected scores of Democrats in 2006 and 2008, and it will elect scores of progressives this fall.

Host a DFA 50 State Action Plan Meeting for DFA members and progressive activists near you on Tuesday, May 18th @ 8:30PM EST. On the conference call, you'll hear from Governor Howard Dean and DFA Field Director Matt Blizek about our strategy to elect progressives and keep growing our community in 2010 and beyond. Sign up now.
