Help Elect A Progressive Champion!

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) endorsed State Senator Roger Manno for Congress in Maryland’s 6th District—an open seat—because he’s adamantly progressive, a proven effective legislator and leader, and because he has all the requisite experience both as a Maryland legislator and as a former staffer on Capitol Hill. Our allies—including National Nurses United (NNU), Our Revolution, Food and Water Watch Action (FWW), Communications Workers of America (CWA), the Working Families Party, and dozens of other progressive individuals, unions, and organizations—have also endorsed Roger.

This is a familiar political showdown. Roger is running against a billionaire and a millionaire-friendly candidate embraced by corporate insiders. The billionaire is trying to buy this Congressional seat after failing to buy the 8th District seat in 2016. The corporate Dem has a record of catering to the 1%. Both of them are pouring $millions into this primary. Roger is pouring his heart and soul into this effort. He needs your support. Will you help him?
Upon receiving our endorsement a few months back, Roger said, “I’m honored to have the support of Progressive Democrats in my race for the 6th Congressional District. I’ve worked alongside PDA for Healthcare as a Human Right, for the Equal Rights Amendment, to stop Global Warming, to ban Fracking, as well as for economic and social justice.”
Here are a few highlights of Sen. Manno’s progressive public service: As a staffer in Congress, he worked for Medicare For All / H.R. 676 from Day 1. As a Maryland legislator, he voted against the $11.4M estate tax giveaway for the top .2%, against allowing garbage burning as ‘clean energy’ tax credits, and against huge giveaways to corporations that his main challengers push at the expense of working people.
Roger led the struggle to ban fracking, help patients gain healthcare and afford medications, facilitate voter registration, lift the arbitrary deadline from the Equal Rights Amendment, and much more. No other candidate in this primary contest can match this record. That’s why PDA gives Roger Manno our highest endorsement.

Roger Manno took the lead on several issues including the environment, healthcare, labor, education, immigration, voting rights, budget, services, and jobs. He’s worked with us on all those and more. In a crowded and talented field, one candidate deserves our endorsement. That candidate is Roger Manno.
Progressive values are ingrained in Roger. He doesn’t just talk about it; he’s lived it. From his website: “I know what it’s like to worry about money, to carry student loan debt, to wait in an emergency room and on an unemployment line—all while feeling like no one in government is listening. That’s why I do what I do.”
