Vote For John Courage

In March, in November and right now at Democracy for America:

Democracy for America is hosting an online vote to determine which congressional candidate will receive our first DFA-List endorsement of 2006. The vote is open to all challengers and open seat candidates. The candidate with the most votes at the end of balloting will receive a DFA-List endorsement and a national e-mail from DFA's Chair Jim Dean.

The voting will take place in two stages. First, we will hold an online vote ending on Saturday, 9/17 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time to narrow the field of candidates down to the top ten. For the second round, we will hold an Instant Run-off Vote among the top ten candidates to determine our first endorsement of 2006.

Currently, John Courage stands in 8th place- in the top ten, but close enough to the bottom that he could fall out, and nowhere near close enough to the top. Should John win, the amount of publicity and money he stands to gain would be amazing. Take a look at where all the other candidates are from. Not only is John the only one from Texas, he's one of only six from the South, and the only candidate south of Iowa in the top 10.

So click here, and vote for John Courage.

Update, 5:50pm: John has moved up from 8th to 6th in the past three hours. Keep voting.

Update, 10:38pm: Nearly four hours later and John has climbed from 6th to 3rd. If you haven't voted, please do.
