A little while ago I wrote this diary about the very good news that the Second Congressional District of Kentucky will indeed have a Democratic candidate running against Brett Guthrie for that Congressional seat. Ed Marksberry's campaign is hitting the ground running and is determined to fight the incumbent Congressman tooth and nail to return representation to the working men and women of Kentucky's Second. He is already proving himself to the working families of that district and has recieved the endorsement of the Greater Louisville Central Labor Cabinet.

However, instead of just resting on his laurels after recieving the endorsement of 28,000 working men and women, Marksberry used the endorsement to blast the current Supreme Court decision that allows Corporations free reign in poisoning our election process with their special interest money. From an email from the Marksberry campaign:

Owensboro, Kentucky-February 24, 2010-Democratic candidate for Kentucky's 2nd Congressional District, Ed Marksberry, has been endorsed by the Greater Louisville Central Labor Council (GLCLC) representing 28,000 affiliated union workers. Candidate Marksberry expressed how very honored he feels to receive their recommendation, and how important it is to him, especially in view of the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that will allow banks and corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections.

"The voice of the working class must not be drowned out by corporate money." Marksberry cited a recent ABC News poll revealing that 80% of
Americans oppose the ruling, and an unusually high number, 65%, strongly oppose the ruling. Additionally, 72% of those polled support legislation to reinstate the limits the court lifted.

Marksberry also pledged that he would work hard for the middle-class despite the ruling that has put them at the mercy of the huge dollars that Corporate America will roll out to influence elections and keep the good times rolling, for them:

Marksberry pledges that his campaign will work hard to voice the needs of middle class Americans despite the ruling. He encourages everyone to consider signing petitions against the "Pay to Play Electioneering" that is corrupting our democracy. Marksberry urges Kentucky's elected federal delegation to support current proposed legislation under consideration in Congress to stop this avalanche of corporate campaign money about to be spent in the upcoming elections. Marksberry says, "Candidates should not have to seek corporate sponsorship in our democracy."

But why stop there?? Go here to give a Democrat in a tough district the resources he needs to fight against Corporate power and to restore a voice to our working men and women in, and aspiring to be in the middle-class:
