Which progressive organizations and candidates are the best bet for ensuring a progressive takeover of the Democratic Party?

Obviously this is a general question but I am curious which progressive organizations and candidates (other than Sanders) people in this movement have donated money/time to help.

I am considering donating to Our Revolution and Justice Democrats. I think Brand New Congress is misled to fund progressive GOP candidates, as it's a waste of time/resources and the GOP is beyond redemption. I can see the argument that just running progressive GOP candidates might move voters in deep red areas, but it still seems like too much effort for little result. Justice Democrats already has a track record and a better national profile so they seem more effective.

I also give monthly to my local Black Lives Matter organization and I would be curious to hear what other not-strictly-electoral organizations people donate/volunteer with.

With regard to candidates, I am considering donating to:

• Rep. Ilhan Omar

• Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

• Sen. Bernie Sanders (obviously)

• Former Sen. Mike Gravel (to get him to the debates)

• Rep. Ayanna Pressley

• Rep. Pramila Jayapal

• Rep. Rashida Tlaib

• Rep. Raul Grijalva

• Rep. Ro Khanna

Are there any other representatives or candidates who I should be paying attention and/or $ $ $ to?

Thanks for any information or advice you can give.

PS. None of the above is intended as a solicitation for anyone else to donate to the organizations or candidates I have listed. I am seeking information about what to do with my own resources.

Does having both Sanders and Warren running split the progressive vote in two, making it more likely Biden will win?

I wonder if having both Sanders and Warren running makes it more likely Biden will win? It basically splits the progressive vote into two, while the rest of the people will vote for Biden.

I like Warren a lot as a candidate, but I’m worried she functions like Jill Stein did in the general elections by taking votes away from the leading candidate most likely to beat Biden, Sanders.

In all the polls I’ve seen, if you add Sanders’ s and Warren’s votes together, they add up to the percentage planning to vote for Biden. As the race continues, I’m sure Warren is going to continue to go up in the polls, but it's likely won’t ever get enough to beat Biden and Sanders. So it seems she basically takes votes away from the progressive candidate that actually has a chance at beating Biden.

Now I could be very wrong about this. It’s still so early and a lot could change. But if nothing substantial changes, this is the direction it seems things would go.

Ideal progressive government: thoughts?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

My ideal gov’t leadership list is as follows: President Bernie Sanders VP Nina Turner Sen. Maj Leader: Elizabeth Warren House Speaker: Ro Khanna

What are yalls thoughts on this? There are lots of progressives who could fit the House Speaker role but Rep. Khanna is one of the more experienced progressives in Congress. Now, even with a Bernie victory, I don’t see Speaker Pelosi or Senator Schumer stepping down from their leadership positions. What do you all think?

What separates the “progressive” side of the 2020 Democratic candidates?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

I'm trying to become more informed for the election in 2020, as I have fallen behind in my knowledge about the candidates. I was a huge Bernie supporter in the 2016 election, but honestly, it was easier to keep up them with only 2 candidates and one being a moderate and the other being progressive. However, this year there are a bunch of candidates that seem very progressive, and I'm trying to become more informed before deciding who to support. Obviously, I'm inclined towards Bernie, but I feel that Beto, Booker, and Pete have solid ideas on policy. So, my question is, what separates Bernie from the "progressive" field?
