Bleeding Heartland: Democracy for America endorses Fallon

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I got an e-mail today from Democracy for America, confirming that they are backing Ed Fallon in the primary to represent Iowa's third Congressional district. Excerpt: "Last Tuesday, our Primaries Matter campaign delivered results and helped lead Donna Edwards to a resounding 24-point victory over Bush-Democrat Al Wynn in MD-04. Ed Fallon is the next DFA-List endorsement and he's taking on Bush-Democrat, Rep. Leonard Boswell in IA-03. Contribute $20.08 right now and support a Democrat with the backbone to stand up for progressive values. ..." I don't know how many members Democracy for America has, but it will be interesting to see how much money this appeal raises for Fallon's campaign. Donna Edwards' convincing victory may make people more willing to invest in another primary challenger. ... As of 10:30 pm, this appeal has raised $20,024 for Fallon from 582 donors. That's an average of just under $35 per donor. Looks like a lot of those people will be willing and able to donate again before this race is over.
