Blue America has found and is supporting another great liberal candidate for Congress and we're putting up Eric Clapton to prove it.

I'll let Howie Klein: explain this contest to you:

We've been talking about the race in MA-05 to replace Ed Markey for some time now. It's just a month away and there are 7 Democrats running. Six of them are garden variety Dems and one, state Rep. Carl Sciortino, is a proven, dedicated progressive leader, which is why we endorsed him-- and why progressive organizations from People for the American Way, Progressive Mass and Mass Equality to the Human Rights Campaign and Grey2kUSA have also endorsed him. This week-- starting today-- we're launching a fundraising drive to help Carl pay to run his amazing TV ad (up top). We're being joined in this effort by Congressmen Alan Grayson, Jared Polis, Raúl Grijalva and Keith Ellison and by the People for the American Way Voters Alliance and the Congressional Progressive Caucus' Progressive Action PAC. And one lucky, random donor is going to get an incredible Eric Clapton platinum award as a "thank you." (Photo below.) Here's how that works. Contribute any amount-- no amount is too small-- to Carl's campaign here and you will become eligible to win.

Donate whatever you can starting at five dollars and you'll be eligible to win this awesome Clapton platinum record.

This stunning 30" x 30" custom plaque isn't something you can buy in a store, no matter how much money you have. Only a small handful were ever made and they were never sold.

Whether you contribute $5, $50 or $500 you will have one chance to become the owner of the plaque.

(In fact, if you can't afford to make a contribution but you want the plaque, you can just send a post card to Blue America, PO Box 27201, Los Angeles, CA 90027 and you'll be eligible as well!)

And if rock'n'roll memorabilia isn't your thing, remember this: Carl Sciortino has been fighting for progressive values-- and winning-- in the Massachusetts legislature. Alan Grayson, Raúl Grijalva, Keith Ellison, Mark Takano and Jared Polis would like to see him in the U.S. Congress helping lead the charge. Sciortino wasn't afraid to speak right out against bombing Syria and he wasn't afraid to say NO WAY to the Beltway scheme to cut Social Security through a Chained CPI. We'd be lucky to have him in Congress, he's earned our support.

Check out this great ad by Carl Sciortino:

This is a man worth fighting for so please join us and help him get elected to Congress.

Can you help us out?
