Tom Allen really needs to be in the Senate

Earlier this week, Tom Allen stood up for free speech and America’s soldiers when he voted against the ridiculous resolution condemning the MoveOn newspaper ad. Just got this email from him on Limbaugh’s slam against the troops:

I support all the troops, regardless of their position on the war. The men and women of our armed forces and their families have sacrificed a lot, and done everything that was asked of them. It is time to bring them home.

Tom is a great Congressman, but we really need that kind of sensibility in the U.S. Senate. While Susan Collins continues to do the bidding of George Bush, Tom has had a consistent message: We need to end the war. He didn’t support the war in 2002, he doesn’t support it now.

So, everyone’s getting hit up because the FEC fundraising quarter ends of Sunday. But, if you’re thinking of making a contribution to Tom Allen so he can beat Susan Collins, you really should do it now. The early money matters — and in Maine, every dollar will go a long way.

AMERICAblog has an ActBlue page for Tom. Send him some early money so Maine can send him to the Senate. This is money well spent.
