The Progressive Movement Rises: There’s Hope for a People’s Politics in America

Victories in Pennsylvania and Oregon Show that Big Money Can be Defeated. Let’s Continue the Momentum
The victories of progressive candidates on Tuesday – Summer Lee and John Fetterman in Pennsylvania; and it’s looking good for Jamie McLeod-Skinner in Oregon – were monumental.
All three candidates overcame a massive influx of money intended to reverse recent polling, showing all three progressives in the lead. The goal of the oligarchs was simple: defeat the progressive movement, suffocate this uptick in democratic participation before it gets out of control.
Guess what? It didn’t work. The people defeated the plutocrats!
This Tuesday we have an opportunity to build on this momentum with victories in Texas and Georgia – by Jessica Cisneros (TX-28) and Vincent Fort (GA-13) and others, too.
And we will build beyond this Tuesday with victories across the entire primary season, all the way through the summer until September.
One thing for sure, PDA will be on the frontlines in every one of the key races where progressive Democrats are fighting to reclaim the party for the people.
Thanks so much for anything you can do.
