Progressives Face Primaries Tomorrow
By Mike Hersh for Mike F., Donna, Deb, Judy, Dan, Janis, Dr. Bill, Shayna, Kim, and Bryan—your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) endorsed four great progressives running in primaries tomorrow. Progressives won’t get money from billionaires or super PACs. To win, we need help from activists and small donors like you. It all comes down to the voters tomorrow. Please do what you can now!
PDA was founded in 2004 to promote progress and help elect progressives to Congress. We have some great candidates running in the Arizona and Florida primaries. These are four amazing progressive candidates. Thank you for doing everything you can to help them win in Tomorrow’s primaries. Please give generously now to help elect them and other progressives, and contact Mike “Phone Guy” Fox if you can volunteer to help get out the progressive vote making calls from your own home.
David Richardson is a courageous progressive running for Congress to bring responsible and forward-thinking solutions to the problems we face on the local, state and national levels. David is exactly the kind of fierce and tenacious Democratic lawmaker we need in DC right now. His candidacy presents us with our best opportunity in the entire country to send a courageous and principled progressive to Congress, to flip a Republican district blue, and to fight back against a president who lacks the moral authority to lead. Please contribute now.
Ruben Gallego is the son of Hispanic immigrants, a veteran, and a community leader. He was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2010, and served until 2014. As a state legislator, Ruben led the opposition to the discriminatory SB 1062, and led the push for Medicaid expansion. In Congress he’s fought tirelessly on issues including education, job creation, access to higher education, veterans’ issues, and immigration reform. Please contribute now.
We need Deedra Abboud in the US Senate. Deedra is a proud advocate for equality and coexistence. She earned the Martin Luther King Jr. Diversity Award in Tempe and the Martin Luther King Jr. Award presented by the Human Relations Commission in Phoenix. A Phoenix-based attorney and founder of the leadership consulting firm, the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership, she is highly respected for her community leadership and advocacy. Please contribute now.
Last but never least, PDA Advisory Board member and Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Rául Grijalvais a tremendous leader. He was arrested standing up for the Dreamers and DACA outside Trump Tower. He supports the People’s Budget—a budget that will create great new jobs, half climate change, and invest in our people. He works for jobs that pay a living wage, and introduced legislation to find a humanitarian solution to our border crisis. Please contribute now.
For a more progressive Congress,
Mike Hersh for Mike F., Donna, Deb, Judy, Dan, Janis, Dr. Bill, Shayna, Kim, and Bryan—your PDA National Team
