Double Down On Progressive Victories
Alan Minsky for Mike F., Mike H., Donna, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, Dan, and Janis—your PDA national team.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is proud to endorse two progressive New Yorkers: Jamaal Bowman (NY-16) and Samelys Lopez (NY-15) for Congress.
On June 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pulled off one of the greatest upset victories in American political history defeating 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary race for New York’s 14th congressional district. AOC’s victory was a high point for the contemporary progressive movement.
On June 23, 2020, we have a rare opportunity to win with two brilliant progressive candidates, running in neighboring congressional districts. Samelys Lopez in NY-15 and Jamaal Bowman in NY-16 have a real chance of joining AOC in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Jamaal is running against 16-term incumbent Eliot Engel, one of the staunchest foreign policy hawks in the Democratic caucus. Jamaal is as progressive on foreign policy matters as he is on domestic issues. He champions PDA’s priorities. Please join us supporting Jamaal Bowman with a donation and / or make phone calls.
Jamaal and Samelys Lopez are so in sync that they just did an event together last night. Indeed, just like Jamaal, Samelys lines up perfectly with PDA on the issues. One difference is that Samelys is running for an open seat, after the retirement of Rep. Jose Serrano.
There are a lot of candidates running in the 15th, but progressives have consolidated behind Lopez, and she has a great shot at winning. Please support Samelys Lopez with a donation and / or make phone calls.
New York City produced a magic moment for progressives two years ago. With your help, we can win with two great progressives on June 23rd!
P.S.: We need your sustained, monthly donations to elect Progressive Democrats to Congress.
