Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) activists connected with our endorsed candidate for Congress, “The Iron Stache” Randy Bryce a few weeks back at the National Single Payer Healthcare Conference in Minneapolis. Randy is a real down to earth progressive, a union iron worker, committed to helping everyone in Congress. He’s running a smart, grassroots campaign to unseat House Speaker Paul Ryan. He needs our help now!

To ensure a Blue Wave, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) needs your help now. Please pitch in to make a generous monthly sustaining contribution or one-time gift to support Randy Bryce and PDA. With your support, Randy can defeat Paul Ryan in a crucial election, and help take back Congress. We appreciate and need every dollar of support.

Give generously to help PDA and Randy Bryce

PDA has been working for a more progressive Congress since 2004, and we’ve learned there are many shades of blue. It is not enough just to elect any Democrats. Actions of past Democratic majorities teach us that conservative and corporate Democrats work more closely with Republicans for narrow elite special interests—not in the interests of most Americans.

Mother Jones magazine reports, “The 52-year-old Bryce is built like a lineman, with soft brown eyes and a flattop that flares up in the front like uncut grass. He grew a handlebar mustache for kicks years ago, and the bushy black ellipse is now so popular he could not get rid of it even if he wanted to. It has taken on almost Samson-like qualities among his growing base of supporters. If it weren’t for the Iron Stache, you might have never heard of Randy Bryce.”

We need to elect strong progressive candidates who will not back down, will not give up, and will not be silent in the face of relentless attacks on the most vulnerable members of society. Please sign up for automatic monthly contributions of whatever amount you can afford to help us elect strong progressive Randy Bryce in the primaries and general election.

We have a lot of work to do. Help us help progressive candidates get on the November ballot. Let’s paint the Congress bench a vibrant shade of true progressive blue. Your monthly gift of $20.18, $12, $6, or whatever you can spare helps PDA support progressive candidates like Randy Bryce who will champion social, economic, and environmental justice. Your steady support helps us build capacity, budget and plan ahead. We need readynreserves to respond quickly to fast-moving developments in campaigns and in the Congress.

Together, we have made a difference, and with your support we will continue to fight for progressive values and champions who are not bought and paid for by billionaires, Big Oil, Big Pharma, or the NRA. Help PDA by making automatic monthly sustaining gifts of $20.18, $12, $6, or other amount.

In solidarity,
