Please join us on September 19th for the first-of-its-kind Calitics.com Quarterly Fundraiser as Democrats from across the San Diego area come together to celebrate Democratic victories throughout the state of California and build momentum towards future success.
Just steps from the ocean at the Firehouse American Eatery and Lounge in Pacific Beach, we look forward to an informal evening of committed Democrats of all sorts laying the groundwork for greater innovation and cooperation as we look forward to the elections of 2008.
We'll have office holders and candidates for Congress, Assembly, Mayor and City Council, humble local bloggers like Terry Williams (and me), Jesse Rubin and the Drinking Liberally crew bringing the party, and perpetually underappreciated activists from all over the region. Bill Clinton is charging hundreds of dollars for entry on Monday, and while we don't get secret service protection, we're cheaper and way more fun.
Calitics.com is dedicated to building a progressive online community that provides all Californians an opportunity to discuss the issues facing the state and a platform for state and local candidates to interact with activists from their district and throughout the state.
Founded in 2005, it is now run by a five-person editorial board representing San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego and sees more than 25,000 total page hits each week. Calitics has been an innovator in online fundraising at the state level and is excited to be expanding its projects for the 2008 election cycle.
Money raised for the Calitics state and federal PACs will be used to support strong Democratic candidates throughout the state and the work of the Calitics editors. Examples in the past have included coverage of the YearlyKos Convention and nationally recognized reporting from the California Democratic Convention.
Suggested donation is $10-$20 and may be made to either Calitics PAC in advance or at the event via the Calitics ActBlue page.
