Shulman Gets Blue America Love

The four Blue America blogs (Crooks and Liars, FireDogLake, Digby, and DownWithTyranny) have launched an interesting fundraising contest that includes Dennis Shulman. From DownWithTyranny:
Today's the first day of a week-long Blue America contest, I'd like to invite you to participate in. Some of our candidates have been endorsed by the DCCC's Red to Blue program, which makes it easier for them to access institutional Democratic money-- big donors, labor unions, single-issue groups, incumbents, etc. And some haven't. Blue America wants to spotlight nine of our House endorsees this week who may eventually wind up in the program but who need campaign cash to compete effectively now.

Whoever gets the most votes gets a $5,000. Unlike other contests, to vote supporters actually need to donate at least a dollar to their candidate, as opposed to voting. As of this writing, Shulman is in a distant fourth, however the week is young.
