We launched two crowdfunded campaigns. We met our first $1M goal in only 13 days. That $1M was matched by technology entrepeneurs from all sides of the political debate. In June, we set an even larger $5M goal, which over 48,500 of you stepped forward to meet.
Now the hard part: We’re picking key Congressional districts and will independently support reform-minded candidates in their efforts to remove opponents who defend the ways of DC. We will not only win those races, but do it in a way that it is clear to all observers that the issue of corruption turned the tide of the election.
It’s an interesting idea. It is slightly disturbing that Mayday would invest relatively large amounts of money from outside the targeted district to influence the vote. I object to this when the money comes from other PACs, from the Koch brothers for example.
