Last week, Senate Republicans shamefully killed a constitutional amendment that would reverse Citizens United and restore our democracy. One of those Republicans was Susan Collins of Maine. 

Our friends at MoveOn have released a TV ad that joins Democrat Shenna Bellows in making this vote an issue on the campaign trailShenna is seeing double-digit movement in the polls right now due to her bold populist message — and if we win this seat, Republicans cannot win the Senate.

Collins is the political establishment’s favorite so-called “moderate Republican” — except she’s nothing of the sort. She’s a corporate-backed politician who voted against the president’s proposal to raise the minimum wage. She regularly votes against veterans, against seniors, and against strong Wall Street reform.

President Obama won Maine by a 15-point margin in 2012. This isn’t a state that needs to settle for Susan Collins. A bold progressive can win this seat. Maine voters just need a real choice, and they finally have one. 

Shenna Bellows is boldly campaigning on big progressive ideas — expanding Social Security benefits, making sure millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share of taxes, overturning Citizens United, and public financing of our elections. […]

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says, “This ad’s basically a masterpiece.”

It’s not every day a political TV ad goes viral.

But it’s happening with Carl Sciortino…

Carl is the definition of a true progressive leader — he supports prosecuting Wall Street bankers, increasing Social Security benefits, passing Senator Warren’s student loan bill, and reversing Citizens United.

His special election is right around the corner on October 15, voters are just starting to pay attention, and he needs our support.

The first poll of the June special election for the open U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts is not encouraging:Ed Markey (D): 44Gabriel Gomez (R): 40Undecided: 16Now, even though it’s Massachusetts, it’s not surprising this is a close race. Witness Scott Brown. And like Scott Brown, Republican Gabriel Gomez is selling himself as a guy who’s above the political fray, who says he sees “‘a lot of unproductive noise and bickering’ in Washington and thinks he can help fix problems.”Gomez is anything but that. 
He’s nothing more than a swift boater, the spokesman for a right-wing, secretly funded group called the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund. That’s the group that spent nearly $500,000 attacking President Obama in the 2012 election over supposed leaks about the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. That’s apparently not “unproductive noise” in Gomez’s world.Which perhaps makes Gomez less like Scott Brown than, say, Alan West. Whatever the comparison, that’s not what the Senate needs.
