Ilya release with GHD and DFA
Meanwhile, Primary Opponent Makes Major Contributions to Republican Campaigns Burlington, VT Today, Gov. Howard Dean and Democracy for America (DFA) sent an email to DFAs one million members asking them to support Ilya Sheymans campaign for congress in IL-10. Sheyman is in a contested primary against opponent Brad Schneider. In the email, Gov. Dean explains, According to FEC reports, Ilya's opponent gave: $250 to Republican Bob Bennett in Utah $250 to Republican Mike Johanns in Nebraska $1,000 to Republican Mike Rogers in Michigan. And here's the big kicker: between 2002 and 2009 Ilya's opponent contributed a total of $3,300 to Republican Mark Kirk the Republican who used to represent this very same congressional district. Gov. Dean and DFA endorsed Sheyman in May because he is a strong progressive who will stand up for the 99%. Dean continues, "But today, I want to make one thing clear: we can't send a 'Democrat' who supports Republicans to Congress and expect to get better results. That's why I'm working to send a true progressive leader instead." Sheyman responded to the endorsements and support saying, I am very grateful for Gov. Dean and DFA's support because from my days as Field Director at Democracy for America, and even before, I've been working in the trenches to elect Democrats, and to fight for the values and priorities of middle class families. Since launching our campaign in April, I've always said that I'm in this race to prove that when Democrats stand up with backbone and conviction for working families, we win. And in less than 100 days, we intend to do just that. View full email here: http://www.democracyforamerica.com/blog_posts/37810-exposed
