endorsements

Our latest endorsements are out.

As you know, Progressive Majority is working to elect progressive champions to state-level offices around the country. As a part of that work, we recruit, identify and assist great progressives in running for office.

On Monday we emailed about Lisa Brown, a proud progressive who was censored on the floor of the Michigan House for daring to say "vagina". Today we're announcing our third and latest batch of candidate endorsements for 2012, more Lisa Browns running in campaigns across the country. Here's more about three of them:

We can't say the "V" word

What's the "V" word? We can’t say the word "Vagina" out loud, or we too might be banned from speaking on the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives. This happened to farm team member and State Rep. Lisa Brown on Wednesday.

Her exact comment (on yet another anti-choice and anti-woman bill which the Republican-controlled house rammed through) was "Finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no."1

Endorsements

We’re excited to announce 19 new endorsements for 2012 in California, Florida, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington. These candidates are teachers, fire fighters, veterans and progressives just like you. They’re running to take the fight to conservatives in state legislatures to protect education, health care, workers’ rights and women’s health.

Ohio Primary Endorsements

We all know how important primaries are, they give us the opportunity to choose strong progressives as our candidates for November.  Progressive Majority is excited to announce our  first endorsements of 2012.  Each of these candidates is in a highly competitive primary in the critical battleground state of Ohio.  We need these candidates to win their primary on March 6 and their election in November so we can take back control of Ohio and move forward with progressive values.
