"They kind of shot themselves in the foot. You had new, compelling candidates getting more people involved who want primary challenges like AOC and Ayanna, and then they come out with a policy that’s basically like 'No more AOCs or Ayannas.' It really galvanized progressives.” -- Waleed Shahid, Comm. Dir., Justice Democrats
Cheri Bustos, the anti-democracy Blue Dog running the DCCC, is determined to make sure no more progressives get into Congress. So, fantastic candidates don't just have to beat Republicans, they have to beat Cheri Bustos and her snarling Blue Dogs as well, all of whom voted to fund Trump’s concentration camps last week.
No Democrats should be taking any Koch money for any reason. No one should be allowed to call him- or herself a Democrat if they do take Koch money.
'Beating Trump' is not enough. We need to win up and down the ticket everywhere. To do that, we need to show what it means to be a Democrat. -- Senator Elizabeth Warren
The experiment of the 1980s didn't work. It's time politicians of the past stop spinning fiction. Our future reality, together, can make a much better story.
"As young Democrats, we support a national boycott of donations to the DCCC until it reverses this blacklist rule and institutes policies that support, not punish, new voices in the Democratic Party. Until this policy is reversed, we urge donors to contribute to individual candidates.”
Virginia Democrats are on the cusp of winning back control of their state legislature. Supporting candidates like Lee Carter, Herb Jones, and Qasim Rashad is what's going to make all the difference.
We want to ask you to consider doing everything you can to help these fantastic progressive candidates, because under DCCC head Cheri Bustos' 'incumbent protection' scam, some already have the DCCC working against them -- for the primary!
Last week the DCCC announced a new rule-- something they've been doing, secretly, for years. Anyone who works with a candidate challenging an incumbent Democrat will be blacklisted.
If you can, vote Early. Then use the time between now and November 6 to dial every number, knock every door. It will take each and every one of us doing everything we can to stop this. Thank you for always doing what you can to make this a better world.
