The conservative Democrat's luck finally ran out last night, ending a nearly forty-year run of a Lipinski in Congress.
If Dan Lipinski calls himself a Democrat, is he? Or is he just too dishonest to call himself a Republican?
An insightful piece from "The Economist" reveals that if you take a ride along Chicago's red line-- a rail service running north-south for 23 miles-- life expectancy varies by 30 years from one end to the other! Thirty years! In a developed country! In the richest country in the world! We've endorsed 4 great progressives who want to fix that.
"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
Eva Putzova: If we didn't want people to have a chance to reconsider their vote every 2 years, then we wouldn't have elections every other year baked into our Constitution. The seats don't belong to anybody but the people-- despite Democratic Party elites.
'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
"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.”
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 cycle progressive fighter Marie Newman narrowly lost the #IL03 seat held by homophobic, anti-woman candidate Dan Lipinski because of last-minute dirty money from "No Labels." This cycle we're going to finish him off, but we need your support to do it.
This week we’re asking you to consider helping our Texas and Illinois candidates and leave the others for another time. Let's make sure the progressives get into the Texas runoffs and into the Illinois general election.
