Progressive Presidential Election Campaign Job Opportunities

To: Humboldt State Political Science Students:

Subject: Progressive Presidential Election Campaign Job Opportunities The November 2006 midterm election was an exciting step forward for progressives; but much work remains. The new Congress, on its own, will not resolve our nation's most pressing concerns. If we want to combat global warming, increase access to higher education, provide health care for all Americans, end corruption in Washington, and redeploy our troops, we must expand our majorities in Congress and take back the White House.

Students who are interested should apply directly to:
