Kavanaugh is confirmed. It’s imperative that we vote blue this November

It's a done deal. Kavanaugh is confirmed. The GOP just rammed through a SCOTUS judge that had multiple accusers, who will probably overturn Roe vs Wade, and who will probably shield Trump from any cases that appear before the SCOTUS.

I am always for progressive candidates. We have gotten some progressive candidate wins like Alexandria Oscoria Cortez. Let's push for progressive candidates in the primary.

But these are not normal times. The SCOTUS is about to undo decades of progressive policy with Kavanaugh added. The president is an authoritarian wannabe and he is being backed by a party that is loyal to him, and not to the country. These are not normal times.

I understand when we don't feel like voting for the "centrist" Dem in the general election, but if we don't, the country will descend into fascism even faster. Maybe if things were more normal and the Republicans didn't have this much control, and the president wasn't an authoritarian wannabe, we could have the luxury of not voting for the Dem candidate that we don't find progressive enough in the general election.

These are not normal times. We have Nazis marching with tiki torches in Charlottesville and these Nazis are silently being supported by our "both sides" president. Roe vs Wade is on the chopping block now. The president is waging war on the environment. Women are being ignored and belittled by the president and his party.

It's up to you how you vote this November. But I hope many of you recognize that these are not normal times and pull the vote for the Dem, even if it's a Dem that you don't find progressive enough. Fascism is overrunning the country and we can't afford to be divided at this November.

Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It’s not selling out. It’s called winning. -Jeff Weaver

Many are expressing concern about Hillary Clinton's endorsement of Andrew Gillum's campaign for governor of Florida — not to mention Bloomberg and DWS.

I have also heard concerns that centrists who prevail in Democratic primaries always expect progressives to actively support them in the general election but the centrists don't vigorously back prevailing progressives.

These two sentiments seem to be in direct conflict.

All of you know I have policy differences with Secretary Clinton. Bloomberg and I are not even in the same universe. And DWS? I'm pretty sure she still considers me an "ass" and "particularly scummy."

Andrew Gillum is in a historic fight in Florida after winning a hard-fought primary. As he has pointed out, people endorse his candidacy because they support his platform and not the other way around. We should be proud that we have built such a powerful movement that Secretary Clinton is now rallying behind Gillum's progressive candidacy.

So I, for one, appreciate those Democrats who are not aligned with the progressive wing of the Party who are stepping up to support Gillum.

Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It's not selling out. It's called winning.

Forever Forward!

Hi Friends,

I’m very excited to announce to you all that our very first dive into electoral politics begins today. This morning, the Patriotic Millionaires officially endorsed 42 candidates running against incumbents who voted for last year’s GOP tax bill.

For more information about our first ever round of candidate endorsements, you can read today’s profile in the Hill.

Across the country, in both urban and rural districts, these candidates offer an unapologetically strong vision for our future that addresses the needs of working families and the most economically vulnerable. We’re excited to support their fight, and we hope you will too.

Obviously it’s Bernie that has the momentum to become the next president.

Aside from the blatant disregard from most of the media, Bernie is still clearly the person who is at the forefront of a growing shift in the political mechanisms. Any other candidate that can’t match his ideals will lose. It’s very clear. It really is a losing battle to move against this, yet, there will be an inevitable struggle for power. We will vote and win for the long term interests of humanity in this country and abroad.
