Progressive group promises to double all online contributions to Patsy Keever campaign
"Progressive Kick," a project of the website ActBlue — which bills itself as an "online clearinghouse for Democratic action" — has announced that it will double all online contributions made to selected candidates in state races, including Patsy Keever, who is running for the House in the 115th District here in Buncombe County. From their website:
"Progressive Kick is committing at least $125,000 we've received from major donors exclusively for dollar-for-dollar matches to donations raised on ActBlue for progressive candidates for state legislature & down ballot statewide offices (Secretary of State etc.). That's a quarter of a million dollars for these wonderful candidates – but it'll only happen if you participate! We've vetted these candidates very carefully with multiple experts/polling data in each state and are sure that each one is in a close but winnable race and that control of Congressional redistricting in their state is at stake.
All of our candidates are progressive leaders with real backbones unlike some Democratic members of Congress who we’ll have to hold our noses to vote for in order to keep a majority. Many of our candidates on this page will be the progressive Congressional candidates of the future. All money donated on ActBlue through our page will be deposited directly in the accounts of the candidates, not in ours. But we're only matching donations made through our own ActBlue page, so tell your friends to come here and double their impact with no extra cost!"
