With Doug Jones’ win in Alabama, it’s clear that when Democrats run strong candidates, they can win elections anywhere. And with the GOP dominating Washington and state governments, we need to win everywhere.
Join us for a weekly digest of great progressive Democrats around the country — up and down the ballot — worth supporting with your time and money. We speak with candidates across the country, running for national and local office alike, reporting on the campaigns that the press often ignores or misunderstands. Reading each issue will help create a more complete picture of the political issues in different states and districts and offer insight into the incredible developments being driven by grassroots organizations across the country.
So far, we’ve profiled rising Democratic superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a number of other impressive progressive Democratic congressional candidates, including JD Scholten (IA-04), Jess King (PA-11), and Marc Friedenberg (PA-12). We’ve also spoken with state legislature and attorneys general candidates in Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Kentucky and a number of other states.
