IN-06: A Little Help From Our Friends

Cross posted from DailyKos by Joh Padgett

The response to the announcement that Barry Welsh's Green Night event was being postponed these past few days from our friends in the Netroots has been nothing short of amazing. Markos has been extremely supportive and we are humbled that he would take the time to help Barry's campaign in a difficult time.

Brian Keeler, aka NYBri from DailyKos, has been nothing short of a hero these last few days. When I told him about the situation with Barry's sister and the event being postponed, he immediately sprang to action to spread the word to a number of friends and allies and is even going to help us with what I have to announce today.

In order to help the campaign make up for the lost Green Night event, some friends of Barry and the campaign are going to host a telethon this Sunday night on BlogTalkRadio show "Candidates' Corner", hosted by the new blogmaster of Heading Left, the famous clammyc and his partner David "ThereIsNoSpoon" of Political Nexus.

The telethon will stream live starting at 7pm EDT, will feature Barry, and will include special guests such as Brian Keeler, Jane Hamsher and more guests TBA. We'll also be live blogging the event on DailyKos and on Barry's Blog, the official campaign blog on

We're going to auction off some Democratic memorabilia and other stuff, we'll be selling the new Barry Welsh campaign T-Shirts, hats, mugs and a line of stuffed animals called Barry's Bears. Jane has also pledged a copy of Charlie Savage's new book Takeover which will be featured this Sunday during the FDL Book Salon and hosted by Glenn Greenwald. We hope you will join us Sunday on Blog Talk Radio at 7pm EDT/4pm PDT!

The call in number is 646-716-9103. Please click here for the direct link to the show, or click the button below to go to the Candidates' Corner main page.
