One of the things @BlackWomxnFor talked to @ewarren after the #BWFWarren endorsement she spoke to use about why her decision to build an ORGANIZING campaign vs a TV AD BUY campaign was to ensure that the whole ticket was benefitting from her campaign
@BlackWomxnFor @ewarren This is important for so many reasons, obviously winning at the local, regional and state level around the country is critical for making #BigStructuralChange - but also for us it was hearing her commitment to do this down-ticket work DURING THE CAMPAIGN. #Warren2020
@BlackWomxnFor @ewarren A Presidential candidate who is only concerned with their own victory is not in the best interests of the left, of the progressive movement or of the country. Today is a good time to lift up some of the folks running for office that @ewarren has endorsed from the campaign trail.

We must remember down-ballot candidates.

This is a list of progressive/leftist congressional candidates endorsed by at least one of these groups:


Please remember:


Double check your registration at least 1 MONTH 🗓 before any election you plant to vote in.

Also, endorsements are an ongoing process
Some races have 2 different candidates endorsed by different groups, so they’re both listed.

If the pinned tweet is related to their campaign, I included it.

Now, onto the (long) list.

I’m in Irving tonight for the #TX24 Democratic primary debate. We’ve got all six candidates on the stage tonight. Gonna be an interesting night. Stay tuned for more.
First question is about the status of the district as a swing district and how to win: @JanForCongress is up first and calls herself the most progressive candidate but can still reach out to moderates.
“I will be reaching out to everybody,” McDowell says. She says Trump is motivating people to vote blue, “We’ll be taking full advantage of that.”

@KimOlsonTx says you need to expand the electorate during the primary in order to win the general.

The congressional race in #TX24 has been highlighted as one of the most consequential in #Texas & the U.S. by @DCCC & @texasdemocrats. NO ONE is more capable than @KimOlsonTx of flipping the seat & helping down-ballot state candidates do same! #GetBrave @WomenDonors @anatosaurus
.@KimOlsonTx is one of the most dynamic public speakers in #Texas, & her battle-tested leadership has prepared her for congress. Thru Saturday a donor is matching all contributions 3x— donate to Kim, help build her war chest to flip #TX24!…
Consider the implications for state & nat’l policy if key districts in #Texas are flipped— it could lead to a super majority in the US House & flip the Texas House. The ramifications are HUGE & @KimOlsonTx has the momentum to make it happen! @WhoLeadsUs…

My statement on the retirement of Rep. Marchant:

(1/3) “Congressman Marchant’s retirement confirms what we’ve known all along: #TX24 is ready to flip in 2020. Although we rarely saw eye to eye on the issues, I want to thank Congressman Marchant for his service to this district.
This retirement has major implications, but it doesn’t change anything for me. I am running to be an advocate for the people of #TX24—a rep. who will fight for affordable healthcare, access to education, and a living wage—& that will remain the case no matter who my opponent is.
(3/3) We need to end America’s gun violence epidemic, act urgently to combat climate change, and fight for a state and a country that work for everyone. My focus is squarely on those issues and many others that affect people every day in this district.”

BREAKING: After flipping FORTY seats from red to blue in 2018, we've officially got our sights set on THIRTY-THREE more -- and we're ready to get to work!

Take a look at our first offensive battlefield of the 2020 cycle:
Our Chair @CheriBustos is keeping her promises and wasting no time by working to expand our Democratic House Majority.
Presidential approval polls in 2020 are shaping up to be a lot like 2008 -- when Democrats continued the blue wave from the midterm. History is on our side, which means Democrats are poised to expand our House Majority even further.…
