Moving America Forward



Following the momentum generated for Democrats as a result of the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries, the Democratic National Committee today launched its latest initiative to motivate and mobilize thousands of activists and to provide them with the resources they need to tell voters what is at stake in this Fall’s elections. In addition to the site above, these materials will be sent via email, posted on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook and will be printed out and given to activists at events across the country.

Voters have made it perfectly clear that they want to move the country forward and not back to the Bush-era Republican policies of the past that put our nation in the mess it finds itself today. With less than three months to go until the midterm elections, these resources – downloadable talking points and pockets cards framing the election - will inform voters and activists about the choice in this election and what is at stake – moving America forward as Democrats and President Obama have done or taking us backward.

The site also features a video of the President making the most forceful contrasts he has made with Republicans to date, laying out clearly for Americans what is at stake and motivating our supporters to get in gear and to get to work to elect and re-elect his allies.

An invitation to our Veterans

My name is Jared Axelrod, and I am a Field Organizer for Senator Patty Murray's campaign. On behalf of Patty Murray, I wanted to invite you to a Veterans for Murray Reception with Patty on Friday, August 13 at 1:30PM at the Renton VFW Post 1263, located at 416 Burnett Avenue South, Renton, WA 98057. This will be a great opportunity to meet Patty, and hear from her on issues affecting the veterans and military family community.

As the daughter of a disabled World War II veteran, Patty Murray has worked tirelessly to fulfill the commitments made to our men and women in uniform. She’s fought to ensure they have access to the health care, education, and housing assistance they deserve. She’s pushed to keep our state’s VA hospitals open, build new clinics, increase access to housing for homeless veterans, made the needs of women veterans a priority and helped pass a new GI Bill.

Keeping our promises to our veterans is a core American value and one that Patty Murray upholds every day.

If you are interested in attending, you can RSVP to me, either via email or by calling 425-941-8536. An invitation is attached, so please feel free to send to others who may be interested.

We hope to see you on Friday.

Thank you,


Jared Axelrod
