There's been so much buzz about Alexandria Ocasio's massive win over Joe Crowley-- and rightfully so-- that we haven't talked much about Tom Guild's success in making it into the August 28 primary runoff in Oklahoma City.
2018 may be "the year of the woman" but the Gender Identity politics had nothing to do with our decision to endorse these two from Michigan. Both have earned their progressive bona fides in their state houses, and are more than qualified to fight for families in Congress.
It would take a very special Democrat to win in Texas' 36th district. Luckily for us, Dayna Steele is that Democrat. Help her beat an ultra-conservative Republican in November.
Stunning victory in NE02 last Tuesday! YAY, Dems! Not so fast. The DCCC has removed the race from their Red-To-Blue page because the Ex-Republican THEY supported lost to a Real Progressive! What happened to #UNITY and #BlueWave2018? Anyone?
Denver deserves better than Representative Diana DeGette — and this year, on June 26, Denver has a golden opportunity to elect someone better: Saira Rao. Help her get her progressive message out to Denver’s overwhelmingly Progressive citizens: https://goo.gl/Vk1EuJ
What's the point of a #BlueWave if we elect the same Big-Bank Democrats who got us into this mess? It's time for a change. It's time for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Congress.
When Democrats regain control of the House, what then? Who is best able to lead at this critical point in our country's history?
Dan and Jenny are two of the most intelligent, independent-minded and passionate leaders we've come across in our many years of vetting progressive candidates.

We can win this one by beating the forces of Insider Beltway corruption-- first the DCCC and in November, the GOP. And with great candidates like Levi Tillemann, who we've endorsed for #CO-06.
We all know what we need out of the next Congress-- capable leaders who have shown the ability and willingness to stand up to Trump, the GOP and the powerful special interests. "That," Katie told us "is exactly what I plan to do in Washington."
