Voting starts at 9am, don't forget to vote:
I got the email late last night. Chris Warshaw, Political Director for Democracy for America (DFA), confirmed that Stephanie Studebaker has made it into the national instant run-off round in DFA's "Grassroot's All-Star Competition"!!
What's that mean? Haven't been paying complete attention? Need a quick refresher on what this means for Ohio?
For the past week and a half Stephanie Studebaker has been competing for DFA's national endorsement against 32 other Congressional candidates. Superstars like Betty Sutton (OH-13),Eric Massa (NY-29), and others were in the first round. After a week and a half of grassroots voting the field has been narrowed to 5 candidates:
Jerry McNerney (CA-11)
Nancy Skinner (MI-09)
Stephanie Studebaker (OH-03)
Patrick Murphy (PA-08)
Phil Avillo (PA-19)
Now Stephanie has 5 days to prove herself. Ohio has 5 days to prove that it's more than just a swing state, that we're a player capable of sitting at the big boy's table with the likes of California and others. It's going to take a lot of work. But in the end, if we can all help Stephanie Studebaker win this competition it means more resources, more attention, and more respect for Ohio and the Ohio blogosphere.
First things first, starting this morning at 9am please logon and vote:
Please pass this link on to as many people as you know...co-workers, email lists, friends, enemies, whoever...it doesn't matter. To win this for Stephanie and Ohio will take a lot of work, more than just simply voting.
If you have the time, get onto the national big box blogs and help us create some energy for Steph. This round of voting is going to take a lot to win. I think the winner will ultimately have around 20,000 to 30,000 votes. Ohio's strong, but we're going to need some help to pull this off. Luckily, the Ohio blogosphere has a little experience creating national attention...case in point OH-2. It's time to get it going again...
And to everyone out there helping us, thank you again.
Studebaker for Congress
