Today's the day. Reach out and touch an Iowa DFA member. Tell him or her that we need them to ensure that we get to vote for a progressive Democrat next November. We selected our 3 top progressive candidates in the DFA straw poll. Now we have to be tough and smart enough to get one of them elected.

letters to fellow DFA members in Iowa.ADDRESSES FOR IOWA DFA MEMBERS
For those of you who have not been following the DFA presidential
straw poll (see previous posts), the winners were respectively Kucinich, Edwards and Obama.
The purpose of the letters to Iowan DFA members is to ask them to
make sure at least one of those three candidates comes out of their
caucus with some votes. This could involve changing candidates after
their first choice does not meet the minimal criteria.
For instance, I support John Edwards. If I were to attend a caucus
site where Edwards, Kucinich or Obama did not receive enough votes to
qualify on the first ballot, I would switch to the progressive
candidate who had the most votes on that ballot. Using this strategy,
DFA hopes to unite progressive voters and to ensure that our votes
will not be divided, letting another, less progressive, candidate
sweep the caucuses.
Again, follow this link and urge our brothers and sisters in Iowa to
help us get a candidate we can support whole heartedly.ADDRESSES FOR IOWA DFA MEMBERS
