‘Cheddarbomb’ for Russ Feingold

Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold is facing a self-funding millionaire, Ron Johnson, in the November election. This might not be on everyone’s radar screen, but the race is actually really, really close. So, today, with the help of his colleague, Al Franken, and a number of progressive blogs, Feingold is holding a Cheddarbomb. (It’s a money bomb, Wisconsin-style.)

Feingold has a solid progressive record. And, he’s great on LGBT equality. On September 10, 1996, Feingold was one of 14 Senators to oppose DOMA. You may think that’s ancient history. But, fourteen years later, NOM is targeting Feingold over that vote. And, NOM also knows that Feingold has been a supporter of marriage equality for years.

We’re all going to get hit up a lot over the next few weeks. If you’re going to give, give wisely. Give to candidates who are progressive. Give to candidates who support full equality.

Russ Feingold meets the criteria. We need marriage supporters in the Senate, not NOM-supported haters.

So, Cheddarbomb away.

UPDATE: Sam Seder and Sarah Silverman talked Cheddarbomb at lunch today:

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
