Help Edwin Eisendrath get Blagojevich to debate
Received a mailing from the Eisendrath forces yesterday which urged readers to call, and e-mail the governor and write letters to the editor in order to create pressure on Blagojevish to accept a debate with Eisendrath.
We need your help today to demand debates. We believe that the Governor should stand side by side with Edwin to discuss the issues important to us all like education funding, access to college education; eliminating sweetheart pension deals; banning the practice of trading jobs for lucrative state contracts; creating and keeping good jobs and restoring trust and integrity to our state government.Though the mailing leaves out the local papers, I'm sure a letter to them would suffice.
Here's how you can help today
