The next fight in Wisconsin

UPDATE 8/15: We did it! Together we raised over $60,000 for the Wisconsin Senate recall candidates. Two went on to win their elections on Tuesday – Jessica King and Jennifer Schilling.

GoalIn April supporters like you helped us raise over $20,000 for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to help pay signature-gathering expenses for the Wisconsin Senate recalls. Volunteers on the ground were so successful that six of the Scott Walker Republicans are on the ballot August 9th!

Five of the six Democratic challengers running in the recall elections are strong experienced women, who have dedicated their lives and careers to helping other people. Women who will help return control of the legislature to Democrats, stop Scott Walker’s extreme anti-women agenda in its tracks, and focus on the priorities of Wisconsin families. EMILY’s List and Progressive Kick are endorsing all five of them.

Now your help can make a difference again. We’re teaming up with EMILY’s List to double your money and double your impact, by matching your contributions dollar-for-dollar for the Wisconsin Senate elections.

Time is very short. Help us raise $70,000 right now for their elections on August 9th.

Every dollar you contribute to the Progressive Kick Wisconsin IE Committee will be matched, up to $35,000. One Hundred Percent of the money raised will be sent to EMILY’s List, specifically to benefit these candidates in the upcoming election.

So don’t just make your dollars count, make them double, by contributing to Progressive Kick’s Wisconsin IE Committee for EMILY’s List today!

Let’s show Governor Walker and his Republican Senate flunkies what we’re made of once more.

Recall the Wisconsin Republican 8

UPDATE 4/21: We did it! Together we raised over $20,000 towards the Wisconsin Senate recall.

Unbelievable! Last month Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin called for an illegal last-minute vote to take away workers’ rights and solve the budget crisis he created. Eight puppet Republican senators backed him up and voted for Walker’s extreme agenda.

Scott Walker is not eligible to be recalled until next year, but those 8 senators can answer to the people right now.

Your support of Progressive Kick’s Win Big by Thinking Small project last year — where we matched donations up to $125K for progressive legislative candidates around the country — had a big impact.

Now your help can make a difference in Wisconsin. We’re teaming up with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin to double your money and double your impact, by matching your contributions dollar-for-dollar for the Wisconsin Senate Recall.

Recall the Republican 8

Your contribution is urgently needed! People on the ground in Wisconsin are working hard on the recall. With the help of supporters and volunteers like you they are over halfway there. The signatures we need to put extremist Senators Dan Kapanke and Randy Hopper back on the ballot have been gathered already. However time is running out in other districts. The 60-day recall deadline is the end of April.

We need your help to keep it going. Please donate today, and your donation will be doubled. Every dollar you contribute on this page will be matched by Progressive Kick, up to $10,000. All of the money will be sent to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin specifically for signature gathering efforts to qualify the recalls for the ballot.

  • $75 gets us an organizer for a day to put together a weekend canvass.
  • $40 buys a tank of gas so an organizer can drive around the district organizing canvasses in different locations.
  • $25 pays the rent on a field office for the canvass for a day. Some of the districts are large and require more than one field office.

We’re so close — can you kick in just a few dollars today? Every donation will be doubled by Progressive Kick’s major donors.

Let’s show Governor Walker and his Republican Senate flunkies what we’re made of.

Offering $250K to Progressive State Leg. Candidates Nationwide

Progressive Kick is committing at least $125,000 we’ve received from major donors exclusively for dollar-for-dollar matches to donations raised on ActBlue for progressive candidates for state legislature & down ballot statewide offices (Secretary of State etc.). Read more about the Win Big by Thinking Small program.

That’s a quarter of a million dollars for these wonderful candidates — but it’ll only happen if the Netroots participates! We’ve vetted these candidates very carefully with multiple experts/polling data in each state and are sure that each one is in a close but winnable race and that control of Congressional redistricting in their state is at stake.

All of our candidates are progressive leaders with real backbones unlike some Democratic members of Congress who we’ll have to hold our noses to vote for in order to keep a majority. Many of our candidates on this page will be the progressive Congressional candidates of the future. All money donated on ActBlue through our page will be deposited directly in the accounts of the candidates, not in ours. But we’re only matching donations made through our own ActBlue page, so tell your friends to come here and double their impact with no extra cost!

[Our Oregon & Pennsylvania candidates are already up on the page. We’ll be adding additional candidates in Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina & Wisconsin through the next week.]
