ElectBlue's Focus for the 2009-2010 Election Cycle

Now that the 2008 election is finally over (well, except for the US Senate race in MN - ugh), ElectBlue has fine-tuned its mission statement for the 2009-2010 election cycle. Earlier today we updated our About ElectBlue post to reflect our new focus. The key sentences read:

"In the 2009-2010 election cycle ElectBlue is focused on supporting the progressive policies of President Obama and increasing Democratic majorities in the US House and, particularly, in the US Senate.  We will also target certain state and local progressive issues as well as selected gubernatorial races. Our goal is simple: to create the best possible political environment for the enactment of progressive public policies."

We have also added a sentence encouraging broader guest blogger participation in the up-coming election cycle:

"We will... post, unedited and uncensored, blogs by selected advocates of progressive policies and referenda on public policy changes which we support or oppose (as the case may be).'"

We encourage our readers to take advantage of the opportunity to be a guest blogger on ElectBlue. You can find out how to do that, and learn more about us, by clicking on the About ElectBlue icon at the left side of the page - or by simply clicking the hyperlinked text above.
