I love this movement, the people, Bernie and his positive politics. For the first time in my life, I feel uninhibited, positive, highly motivated, and find my resolve strong and true. I love that so many of us are forever changing this year too. There is no going back on any of this! Despite all that has happened, there is Bernie doing what it takes to press onward. And here we are, changed, growing more potent, getting smarter, firm in our resolve, lucid and eager for more! We are FOR things rooted in genuine human need. Human need created by … Continue reading →

Feeling the Bern, R.I. progressives forcing primaries Energized by Bernie Sanders’ decisive victory in Rhode Island, about a dozen progressives are challenging more conservative Democratic state legislators in September primaries . In Pawtucket and Providence, Warwick and West Warwick, progressives are lining up to challenge Democratic incumbents, bolstering the strongest field of “real Democrats” in years, said Samuel W. Bell, state coordinator of the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats. Wednesday marked the end of a three-day window for Rhode Islanders to declare their candidacies, and some of the challengers helped catapult Sanders to victory in the state’s April 26 primary. While … Continue reading →
Obama Jumps Into Wisconsin Senate Race For Russ Feingold President Barack Obama is sending out a fundraising email Monday morning for Russ Feingold, one of the Democrats’ best prospects for picking up a Senate seat this year. Feingold is running to retake his old Senate seat from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who defeated Feingold in 2010. During his 18 years in the Senate, Feingold was known as one of the chamber’s most progressive members, and this time, Democrats see him as one of their top candidates. “Russ isn’t afraid to stand up for what he knows is right, even when … Continue reading →
Feingold Up By 4 In Wisconsin Former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) holds a narrow lead over vulnerable Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) in a rematch for the competitive Wisconsin Senate seat, a new poll finds Wednesday. The Marquette Law School Poll found Feingold has a 4-point lead, within the survey’s margin of error, over Johnson, 45 percent to 41 percent among registered voters. Johnson faces an uphill battle for a district that went for President Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and could be pivotal in which party gains control of the upper chamber. The poll’s results have barely shifted from … Continue reading →
I am prepared to stand on the Senate floor and talk about the need to prevent gun violence for as long as I can. I've had #Enough — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) June 15, 2016 Senate Dems Filibuster Over Lack Of Gun Control Senate Democrats took the chamber floor to filibuster for stricter gun control legislation Wednesday, just days after a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people and injuring dozens of others. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, began stalling work on a spending bill Wednesday morning, hoping to push the Senate into considering two gun control … Continue reading →
Angela Marx is running for the WA-03 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. This is the district running all along the Columbia River — it includes a lot of rural areas and the major urban area of Vancouver, WA. This seat is winnable by a progressive candidate — especially in the wake of the Sanders Presidential run — and that is why Angie has thrown her hat into the ring. A Sanders supporter, she is a smart, passionate, well-informed woman who can think on her feet. She has done very well in the debates with her fellow candidates … Continue reading →
The Candidates Come Together (For A Meeting) The Democratic Party establishment’s long, awkward, and occasionally frightening nightmare is over — or at least just about. Hillary Clinton was declared the winner of the final primary in the Democratic Party’s presidential nominating process Tuesday night, just as she sat down for a highly anticipated summit with rival Bernie Sanders. The carefully choreographed meeting ran for nearly two hours at the neutral territory of the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C. Afterwards, both candidates released nearly identical statements calling the meeting “positive” and saying they had agreed to work together to defeat Donald … Continue reading →
Lucy Flores Looks For A Bernie-Boost The reach of Bernie Sanders’s political influence will be tested Tuesday in a Nevada congressional race. Lucy Flores was among the presidential candidate’s first endorsements earlier this year, and his blessing and subsequent fundraising plea helped the former state legislator raise over $600,000 for her competitive Democratic primary. Now she’s facing off against two rivals who both have support from swaths of the Democratic establishment. And she’s hoping the progressive energy she’s worked to create can boost her in the close race for the right to challenge freshman Rep. Crescent Hardy, one of the … Continue reading →

Lucy Flores, a powerhouse state legislator running for Congress in Nevada’s big primary this coming Tuesday, is a true leader … Continue reading →
Tomorrow is the first election for Congress in 2016, the special election in Ohio’s 8th Congressional District. And we can win this election. And it’s really WE, because Kossack Corey Foister is the Democratic candidate. Short background of the race: This is John Boehner’s old seat. After Boehner retired following his ouster as Speaker of the House, a special election was scheduled. On the Republican side, Warren Davidson, who wants to become a member of the Freedom Caucus in the House, won a 15-person primary. On the Democratic side, only Corey threw his hat in the ring. Why Corey can win: Normally, … Continue reading →
