Revisiting the k/o list

Below you'll find an updated blog entry version of the k/o list. This list, as I've explained before, is a work in progress and a tool for you to use to read about some of the close races in this country where Democrats are taking GOP seats back from Republicans. I will republish it periodically before election day:

the k/o list: updated Sunday Oct. 15th, 2006

  • I am not claiming that this list is exhaustive or a substitute for any of the other great lists out there. (Among them Blue America, the combined Netroots Candidates pages of the MyDD, Swing State and Dailykos communities, and eRiposte's amazing national local blog list.) Because I focus on local blogs and what Lynn Allen calls transformational candidates; this list leans towards what I hope is a sweet spot in the 2006 election cycle, races where, with a bit more support and effort from netroots bloggers and grassroots activists, Democrats might just well win and create downticket netroots waves across the nation.

    Exclusion of your blog or race is not meant to mean anything. This list is just a start point in our admittedly much larger effort. Your comments are welcome below.



    • This is a helluva good thing you're doing, Kid. Thanks.

    • You mentioned earlier that your criteria for inclusion on this list is vulnerable GOP incumbents, but if there’s a place in your heart for vulnerable Dem incumbents, I would beseech you to keep an eye on Oregon where the polls haven’t been looking good at all and the state’s major daily paper endorsed the Republican candidate seemingly because they have a good feeling about him and he “has ideas”.

      If you can be so persuaded, then know that we at www.thedirtynorthwest.com and our friends at www.blueoregon.com have been yelling into the void for some time and we need some folks for GOTV efforts.
