Congressman Jack Kingston of Georgia has given the Rightroots movement a challenge (emphasis mine):

FROM THE DESK OF CONGRESSMAN JACK KINGSTON

Dear Friends,

I commend the efforts of the Rightroots movement for providing a forum which seeks to help the Republican Party secure our majorities in the House and Senate, and might even push some competitive races over the finish line in November.

I strongly believe that small donations from a large number of people will help influence public policy and change the face of politics in Washington.

This is our opportunity to send a clear message to folks that Republicans don't just beat Democrats on the streets and on Election Day, but on every battlefield, including the Internet.

I'm going to make a pledge: If Rightroots raises a total of $26,000 by 11:59 PM (EST) on Friday, August 4, I will contribute a total of $14,000 directly to some of the candidates from my Leadership PAC in the name of our movement.

It's time for action, and these candidates need our help. Together, we can do it.

Sincerely,

Jack Kingston

Member of Congress

Very cool. Now, we gotta make it happen.

We're collecting endorsements of the slate of candidates on the site, so go see who else is behind us. Lorie Byrd is thrilled to see who her name is next to.

Michelle Malkin has a post up comparing the Left's Netroots to the Rightroots project. Let's just say the Netroots employ more blackface than we ever will. No really, it's in the post. Go check it out.
