Democrats.com endorses Harrison

Democrats.com, (not the Democratic Party) an online organization of Democratic activists has endorsed Harrison. The group is best known for their large email list which can drive money and support to candidates across the country. They had this to say in their endorsement email;

Steve Harrison is an "aggressive progressive" who supports all the issues we care about: immediate withdrawal from Iraq, no war with Iran, single-payer health care, stopping global warming, and protecting abortion rights.

Harrison is endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America, Democracy for NYC, Down With Tyranny, Stonewall Democrats, the National Organization for Women, and Gloria Steinem. Harrison earned the right to be the Democratic candidate in his 2006 campaign, when he won 43% against Republican incumbent Vito Fossella, the best showing ever for a Democrat in the district.

They are pushing to raise $16,000 for Harrison, not an unrealistic feat after they raised $25,000 through email asks for another Democratic candidate running for Congress in Georgia earlier in the summer. At this point the money will be useful for get out the vote efforts in the final two weeks of this primary campaign.

Ok that's nice - but if you really care about democracy in the NY13 - please help explain how someone can start their own club in the district.

I don't really know the answer to that. Essentially it is a matter of organizing and promoting your group and building a member base. There isn't a secret or form you fill out.
