Today, our Founder, Gov. Howard Dean shared this message:
Sen. Max Baucus's decision to retire is a huge opportunity for progressives.
Now, we have the chance to elect a powerful populist and a single-payer healthcare advocate to the U.S. Senate.
That's why Democracy for America is launching the campaign to draft Gov. Brian Schweitzer for U.S. Senate.
Brian is the popular former Governor of Montana and he'll be a tremendous force in the Senate. As governor, he stood up to lobbyists and big corporations and has a record of leadership that is desperately needed in Washington.
He fought for a single-payer healthcare system for Montana and championed a drug reimportation program that would have saved seniors big money. Thanks to his leadership on these issues and more, it's no wonder that a snap survey showed 93 percent of Montana DFA members want us to draft him for Senate.
This is an open seat race in a red state, but I'll guarantee you: If Brian Schweitzer runs, he will be the next Democratic Senator from Montana.
Thank you for everything you do.
