Progressive choices for primary day

The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida announced their endorsed candidates for 2016.

In an email releasing the names of their choices the caucus said, “The way we move the Democratic Party in a more progressive direction is to get the more progressive candidates into the November General Election.”

The DPCF also recommends a “yes” vote on Amendment 4.

    I cannot believe they did not endorse Alan Grayson for US Senate. Goodbye credibility.

    Very disappointed that they didn’t endorse Grayson. I hope you didn’t fall for the lies and smears that Murphy and his corporate cronies were shoveling.


  4. Alan Grayson also has my progressive vote for U.S. Senator. The State Senate is a different body. It represents each district in the state and is responsible solely for legislation that affects the state. U.S. Senators (2 per state) represent their own state, as well as write legislation for the entire nation.

    I would also like to comment on the obvious war on Progressives being waged by the Corporate Cronies. It starts at the top and includes Obama, Biden, Clinton, Reid, Murphy, Wasserman Schultz, and Allison Can’t. They have all conspired with their benefactors, the BANKSTERS, to eliminate anyone who wouldn’t be bought. The banks and insurance companies bought these sellouts and even though they committed the biggest heist of wealth from the people ever, they have gone unpunished and are more powerful than ever.

    Take a look at Walter Dartland in the District 2, US House race.


  7. Kate Ellison · ·

    Do you look outside your area at local races? Progressives Mike Byerly and Hutch Hutchinson are both locked in two tight Commission races in Alachua county. The winner of their primaries will gain the seats. Plum Creek (Weyerhouser) has financed their opponents, who will approve a development in a swampy area that no one wants. They are standing up for protection of the environment (Plum Creek, I-75 Relief Corridor, and a Phosphate Mine next door).


  8. No Grayson endorsement? #Patricklied sooner or later those ethics complains about his Accountant claims will surface and they’ll be sorry they didn’t stand against him.
