Thanks to your generosity on the Expand the Map! ActBlue page, Tom Allen has crossed the $500 target and Andrew Rice has crossed the $3,000 target! Meanwhile, Larry LaRocco is only $73 away and Rick Noriega is only $88 away from the $1,000 target. Can we get Larry and Rick over the $1,000 hump? Again, thank you so much!
