Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) Endorses 14 Progressive Superstars for Re-Election to the US House of Representatives


Progressive Democrats of America (PDA), a grassroots political action committee, announced 14 endorsements. PDA has set up online resources to facilitate small, grassroots donations and volunteer efforts to help re-elect the following incumbents:

PDA Executive Director Alan Minsky said, "Nothing is more essential for our movement than returning all of these progressive champions to Congress with resounding victories--just as nothing would please our opponents more than their defeat. They will pour money into any campaign challenging AOC, or Rashida Tlaib, or Jamaal Bowman, et al., but we can defeat them with an avalanche of small donations."

Minsky added, "Over the next several days, we will announce endorsements for additional incumbents. Many excellent progressives will be added to this already-impressive list, a clear sign that progressive power and influence is growing in Congress and across the country."

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and U.S. politics by working inside and outside of the party by working to elect empowered progressives and by building the progressive movement in solidarity with with peace, justice, civil rights, environmental, and other reform efforts.
