Guess Who's Back In The Hunt? (Hint: Her Initials Are Darcy Burner)

Back in 2006, when Blue America was just a young PAC, one congressional candidate seemed to emerge from out of our own ranks, so conversant with the way the new technology had merged with progressive politics that she was, in many ways, the first Netroots candidate. It was Darcy Burner of Washington state, a brilliant former Microsoft executive who famously declared that she knew she had to step into the arena when she realized that she needed to leave a better world for her young son.

She lost a couple of heart breakers '06 and '08 and spent the last few years working in DC as executive director the Progressive Caucus Foundation. Now she's back home in Washington state and ... she's running again! As always, she wants to hear what you have to say and answer your questions directly.

So please join us on Saturday as we welcome our good friend Darcy back to her first Blue America chat of the election season at 11am PST/2pm EST. (And if you have a mind to welcome her with a campaign contribution, you can do so here.)

Can you help us out?
