A liberal activist group that has been running ads against Blue Dog Democrats who voted against the healthcare overhaul bill in the House now have a new target: Sen. Joseph Lieberman.Adam Green, co-founder, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, contacted me earlier today to let me know how fundraising was going for their "Hold Joe Lieberman Accountable" campaign, and how the Connecticut media is taking notice.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee says it has already raised more than $40,000 to run online ads targeting Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats. The group is sending an email to supporters seeking additional donations.
The ad directs viewers to a petition asking Senate Democratic leaders to strip Lieberman of his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee if the Connecticut Senator makes good on his threaten to block a vote on the healthcare bill.
Adam told me, "fundraising for these online ads have topped $43,000, enough to reach 4.3 million people online."
If you guys can make a donation, of any size, it would be a good thing. Here's a link to the "Hold Joe Lieberman Accountable" campaign:
