Cheers for Candidate Jeff Seeman

We have a new candidate to cheer about and hope you reward him with generous donations. He is Jeff Seeman, a progressive candidate for the House in Ohio. He just took out an ad on Daily Kos, and says it's because of the controversy. Here's just a portion of what he has to say about the Daily Kos controversy:

Our campaign has decided that because of the recent events we will step in and advertise on www.dailykos.com. We have made this decision for two reasons: 1) We firmly believe in the First Amendment and everyone's right to say whatever he or she chooses on their own website. 2) We refuse to allow our campaign to be bullied by the right wing like they bullied Kos' previous advertisers.

We entered this campaign for Congress based on courage and the desire to stand up to the Republicans who are destroying our country with huge deficits, unjustified wars, and a blatant disregard for Americans and the challenges they face in their daily lives. We understand that the decision to launch this advertising campaign will attract attention, both positive and negative. We will make no statement regarding the actual content of Kos' controversial statement, but we will always stand up for his right to dissent. Furthermore, we are campaigning to return this country to a Democratic majority in Congress and we will not allow our message to be written or altered by our opposition.

Candidate Seeman is seeking $20 donations. Go give now. Here's his issue statement on civil rights:
