A recent article in The Daily Progress highlights Democracy for Virginia's support for Al Weed through the Dean Dozen endorsement, quoting our own Donna Goins of Charlottesville as a host of one of many convention-watching parties for Al last week.
For the party Wednesday night in Charlottesville at the home of supporter Donna Goings, “I got her a mixed case” of wine, he said.
Goings said she and about 400 area supporters of former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean, Weed’s initial favorite for president, have brought the organization started around the former Vermont governor behind Weed. “We feel he’s a progressive candidate,” she said.
“We worked very hard to get him designated a member of the Dean dozen,” a list of congressional candidates now benefiting from some of the national Dean organization, Goings said.
Weed said the Dean magic is working and is beginning to show up in campaign donations.
Although Weed lagged far behind Goode in money raised for their campaigns, the Democrat said last week that his campaign kitty reached the $205,000 mark in total cash raised.
Please support Al!
