Will Your Voice Matter?
By Mike Hersh for Judy, Donna, Dr. Bill, Mike F, Kim, Janis, Deb, Dan, and Bryan—Your Progressive Democrats of America National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) gives voters an alternative to corporate Dems—hand-picked candidates who have support from conservative millionaires and / or are conservative millionaires themselves. We are working to help progressives win rapidly approaching primaries. They’ve all scored 100% on our exacting questionnaire, all have strong local support, and all need your time and/or money to overcome their rivals.

We are saddened but not surprised that top ranking Democrats are still trying to preselect candidates, undermining or even negating the primary process. We believe in democracy, and that means accepting the will of the voters. We’re troubled when someone like House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer tries to push progressive candidates out of politics—as exposed in a recent recording.
The myth that progressives can’t win has been roundly disproven. If given a fair chance, progressives can win nominations. If nominated, progressives win. However, if an establishment candidate needs help “clearing the field” and cannot compete fairly in a primary, they’re probably a very weak candidate.
If primary voters’ concerns are overridden or ignored, then turnout suffers, and the chances for a rightwing Trumpublican victory increases. For all these reasons, we urge you to support progressives in primaries and join with us insisting on letting primary voters choose the strongest candidate. If you agree, please pitch in to help these great candidates:
