Are you looking to return positive leadership — and sanity — to Washington? Look no further than Charlie Holley, Democratic candidate in AL-05:
“As I travel throughout the 5th District and I speak with different people and they tell me their problems and their concerns, I see them as my own family,” Holley said. “I can tell you today they are getting sick and tired of getting ignored and overlooked at belittled by our current Congressman.

It's a game with a vision beyond November 6th; they hope to leave a generation of organizers in the wake of this election, committed to moving America forward, not back.

It’s “terrific government education,” Farris added. “You can’t get this kind of education in public schools.”
500 reasons to vote against Mitt Romney and for Barack Obama. Need more? Obama's top 50 accomplishments. And why every woman should vote tomorrow. This 99 year old Florida woman cast her first ballot, ever, this election — for Obama.
