Bush, Cheney and other members of the Regime have been stealthily flying around the country to do very private fundraising dinner with wealthy Republicans for many of the rubber stamps who have supported their entire heinous agenda. It isn't likely that you'll find a more endangered GOP incumbent, nor one who has been a more servile rubber stamp, than extremist kook Tim Walberg from southern Michigan. MI-07 is a moderate district including the western suburbs of Ann Arbor and Lansing and all of Battle Creek. Last year Walberg ousted the moderate Republican who represented the district, Joe Schwarz, and the Democrats weren't prepared, fielding a fringy candidate (who still held Walberg to 51% of the vote). This year the Democrats are very well prepared.
Mark Schauer is a tremendously respected and well-liked state senator in a district that covers much of the reddest parts of MI-07. Blue America has already enthusiastically endorsed Mark (check out his FDL session from October 27) and this week the two biggest Michigan blogs, Michigan Liberal and Blogging For Michigan are trying to raise some grassroots donations for Mark to counterbalance Darth Cheney's visit. Mark would make an extraordinary congressman. Let's give him a hand at the Blue America ActBlue page.
If you are able to give a little towards Schauer's campaign, please do so. I'm still stunned that anyone--given the track record of destruction that the Bush administration has left in its wake--would be persuaded to donate to any Cheney endorsement, but we have to push back with beating their fundraising. Let's show Cheney & Co. that we're committed to a blue Michigan.
