What is Heidi Hall going to do, defeat me?  My district has been occupied by my party for YEARS!  She can't stop me!
Democratic Congressional Candidate in California's 1st Congressional District, Heidi Hall, is issuing a fundraising plea to meet Monday's FEC filing deadline.

Details below the fold:

KnowledgeDemocrats,

We wanted to be sure you'd seen Heidi's email from Wednesday about this week's critical FEC deadline. You can scroll down to read it.

Heidi's on her way to Redding to show her support for equality in today's Pride parade, but we had to share this great news with you first:

We have almost hit $10,000 raised online this quarter from over 125 donors!

These numbers are amazing, and we are all so humbled by the support you've shown Heidi in her fight to restore responsibility to Congress.

Because of this incredible level of support, the campaign is setting a new goal for before Monday's midnight FEC deadline: 150 online donors before the quarter ends on Monday.

Please click here to contribute. Any amount you can give, even just $5, brings us closer to that goal.

If you haven't given yet, please give today. And if you have, please pass this email along to anyone you know who wants to see Washington get back to work for California's working families.

If we can hit $10,000 just in online contributions from over 150 donors, that will go a long way to showing the country how ready the First District is for a new direction. Please help us hit this goal before midnight on Monday.

Sincerely,

Team Heidi

In addition, Heidi Hall, a self-proclaimed social progressive/fiscal moderate has this to say about herself in her intention to seek out Democracy for America endorsement:

http://www.democracyforamerica.com/...

I believe our government is what we make it. The federal government should pursue measures that help working families and the middle class, because we are the ones who have given so dearly and invested so much to build this great nation.

As a mother I continue to advocate for good public schools, and believe in access to higher education for all who wish to continue learning and improving their skills. Education is an investment we should be happy to make.

Access to affordable, quality health care is a right, and ensuring such access is a duty that Congress must take seriously.

Keeping the promises of Medicare and Social Security—promises we’ve made to seniors who have fulfilled their obligations and deserve what they’ve earned—is an obligation that we cannot afford to ever forget. Nor can we deny current workers the opportunity to someday retire by taking these programs from them.

Protecting the environment and promoting sustainable growth is a necessity, and one that Congress can no longer ignore.

Defending the rights and liberties of women, minorities, the GLBT community, and immigrant communities is a fundamental obligation. Equality under the law is not a suggestion that Congress may ignore at its pleasure: it is a cornerstone of our Constitution, and must be honored as such.

So CA-01 residents, can you deal with this bozo as your Congressman?

OR

A progressive like Heidi Hall?

Yes, we know the 2012 Election results produced the following:

But what reason do we have to not be able to fire up the base in CA-01?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
