Our Fleet Of Trucks… Needs Gas Money

(Before It's News)


It's that time of year again. Staring tomorrow we have trucks, 2-sided mobile billboards prowling the highways and byways of at least 4 districts with Republican incumbents that we think are flippable. These are the four races:

NV-04, where we expect Ruben Kihuen to beat NRA patsy Cresent Hardy
NH-01, where Carol Shea-Porter looks like she can end the political career of dishonest Trumpist Frank Guinta
NY-02, where Suffolk County legislator DuWayne Gregory is on track to oust right-wing crackpot Peter King
TX-21, our long-shot race, where Berniecrat Tom Wakely has made tremendous inroad in the San Antonio and Austin suburbs thanks, in great part to the tight bond between Lamar Smith and Donald J. Trump


These four trucks are already in production and the first two– in New Hampshire and Nevada– will be on the road Tuesday; Long Island starts Wednesday and Texas starts Thursday. We are asking for some money to keep these four rolling right up until November 8. And… if anyone is feeling flush, we'd like to get trucks on the road against Issa in Orange and San Diego counties, against Pet Meehan in the Philly suburbs and against John Faso in upstate New York (Zephyr Teachout's district). Enough $20 contributions will be great for the gas but trucks will cost around $15,000 each for for a run between now and election day. Fortunately, the Blue America Independent Expenditure Committee can take bigger contributions than is permitted to candidates. If you want to give enough for a truck or for a significant part of a truck and it's for a specific candidate, just let us know by e-mailing me at

Our IE Committee ActBlue page is here.

Meanwhile, if you want to help the candidates directly, you can contribute to their campaigns on this page, but remember, none of that money goes for the mobile billboard campaign and none of the I.E. money can be shared with the candidates.



And if you like the thermometer style of contributing… here's the thermometer for our Independent Expenditure Committee; don't be shy. There's no such thing as a “too small” contribution:
