U.S. Senate Candidates
THE IRAQ EIGHT:
Crucial Senate Races to Change U.S. Policy on Iraq
We can win these eight Senate contests this November. If that happens, it will change American
policy in Iraq and help force the withdrawal of American troops from that quagmire.
But you must help. Select the candidates you prefer and write your checks to them. They all
need money for the final push.
In every one of these elections, an opponent of the Iraq war confronts a supporter.
No contests could be clearer. We must defeat these Iraq war supporters and change the
direction of the nation, the Congress and even the candidates for President in 2008.
American public opinion has turned decisively against the Iraq war. But many Senators still hold
mixed views about how to disengage U.S. military forces from that quagmire. Some oppose the war
and favor a timetable for American troops to withdraw from Iraq, while others oppose the war but
fear the political and diplomatic consequences of leaving.
If we win these eight races, the consequences will be staggering.
Here are the crucial races:
Connecticut (General election, November 7)
Hawaii (Democratic primary, September 23)
Maryland (General election, November 7)
Montana (General election, November 7)
New Jersey (General election, November 7)
Ohio (General election, November 7)
Vermont (General election, November 7)
West Virginia (General election, November 7)
Please look over the details of these eight crucial elections on the next pages, select your favorites
and write your checks. We have interviewed all of the anti-Iraq candidates; they are strong and res-
olute on the war.
Keep up the momentum.
