Help Us Elect A Congress That

Will Stand Up Against Trump

We regularly feature how candidates and activists across the country are Trumping Trump’s attempts to turn our democracy into a third world style hard right dictatorship.

While local chapters have endorsed many great candidates, these four stand out as exceptionally solid progressive champions who have built campaigns that have a good chance of winning, especially if we pile on.

We’re organizing our members on the ground and have a nation wide phone bank in the game for all of the folks below.  Contribute to the candidates and our efforts on their behalf below.

Laura Moser (TX-07)  is a journalist whose bylines have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and more. Following the 2016 election she founded the national activism group Daily Action, and it’s members regularly fight for the 99%. She supports all of our progressive issues, including medicare for all, a living wage, peace, social, economic, racial, and environmental justice and getting big money out of politics.  Her election is May 22nd. Help us help her now.

Col. Doug Applegate (CA-49) made national news when he came within a hair of defeating Darrell Issa in 2016.  We were with him then, and we’re with him now.  He’s solid on all of our issues, and is a real rarity as an ex military man who is a voice for peace.  His election is June 5, but vote by mail has already started.  Help us help him now.

Kevin de Leon (CA US Senate) is the embodiment of the American Dream.  His immigrant single parent mother provided for her family by doing house work and odd jobs. Kevin rose from the San Diego barrio of Logan Heights to become the first in his family to graduate from high school, and then graduate college with honors. He grew to be the head of the CA Senate with hard work, determination, and a true passion for helping the 99%. His election is June 5 but vote by mail has already started. Help us help him now.

Roger Manno (MD-06) is a real progressive fighter.  A cancer survivor from a humble working class household, Roger has been a champion for the people during his tenure in the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate.  He took on insurance companies who denied care, and won.  He took on Walmart who denied rest breaks, and won.   He took on the big polluters and union-busting bosses, and won.  And he’ll bring that same strong spine and chin to DC.  His election is June 26th. Help us help him now.
