DuBose Porter, the new chair of the Georgia Democratic Party, has announced the launch of Project Blue, the initiative to obtain 2000 sustaining contributors to the Democratic Party of Georgia. This has also been referred to as the Yellow Dog Club. “As you’ve heard me say before, if we have 2000 members giving an average of $25 a month, we’ll have the funds to cover our monthly operational budget,” Porter said. “Some people have the ability to give $5 a month. Some can give $100. We’re asking folks to give what they can. Just give. It’s imperative that we reach this goal by the end of September.”
