If it’s going to be hand-to-hand combat, let’s go prepared.

According to the LA Times, Obama said that “A Republican majority in Congress would mean ‘hand-to-hand combat’ on Capitol Hill for the next two years.”

I say – bring it on!  Election Day is coming right up and that gives us a great chance to send tested warriors.

I’ve gone through the list of House seats that are still in play according to RCP and have highlighted those where the candidate is a veteran, according to their webpage bio. I have listed them in order from most at risk of a Democratic win to least at risk, but ALL of these races are still close and the candidates could use your help. Each candidate’s name links to their website.
