We The People: Dan Seals on ActBlue

We are more than excited to profile one of our top fundraisers, Dan Seals, who has raised nearly 1.5 million dollars on ActBlue since 2005.

Dan Seals is running in Illinois’ 10th district, where he is challenging Republican incumbent Mark Kirk for the second time after winning 47 percent of the vote in the 2006 election. Seals, who received a masters degree in International Economics and Japan Studies from Johns Hopkins, and an MBA from the University of Chicago, has raised almost $1 million dollars from nearly 8,000 contributors on ActBlue this election cycle.

With formal endorsements from Barack Obama and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, fervent support from the DCCC and the Netroots community, and a rating from Time Magazine as one of the top 15 House and Senate Races of 2008, Dan Seals is undoubtedly tough competition for incumbent Mark Kirk in Illinois’ 10th district.
