Members praised the endorsed candidates for vowing to protect healthcare and create economic opportunity
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, MoveOn Political Action is announcing the first wave of federal endorsements made by its members as part of an effort to take back the House of Representatives this November.
Each of the candidates is currently fighting for progressive values like universal healthcare and access to equal opportunity in their communities. MoveOn members plan to make nearly 100 federal endorsements in the 2018 midterm election cycle to end GOP control of the House.
Specifically, MoveOn members in their respective districts voted to endorse:
“These thirteen new progressive leaders are firing up MoveOn members in their districts like never before,” said Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn Political Action. “All of them are running strong campaigns and committed to fighting for progressive values in Washington, such as health care for all, protections for dreamers and an economy that works for everyone instead of a wealthy few. MoveOn members support these candidates and plan on showing up for them at the ballot box this November.”
This year, MoveOn members are leading a Resist & Win initiative, a national election program dedicated to moving more voters to the ballot box. Organizers from around the nation will mobilize and train grassroots activists, shape the progressive narrative, and fundraise directly for like minded political champions.
MoveOn Political Action represents the collective will of MoveOn’s members by helping to elect progressive candidates. In the 2014 election cycle, MoveOn members made over 6.7 million phone calls for endorsed candidates. MoveOn members have also raised more than $2 million, mobilized volunteers, and run ads in support of endorsed candidates across the country.
