CGP endorses strong progressive leaders


This November, voters in the Bay Area and beyond have clear choices. Some candidates are funded by the corporate establishment, and some are supported by labor and environmentalists -- and people like you and me.

Our environment, our privacy, our healthcare, and our Constitution are under relentless assault from corporate “business as usual” legislators -- and the time is now to elect candidates who will defend us in those crucial realms. After careful assessments, the Coalition for Grassroots Progress has made endorsements in these crucial races:

Earlier this month, the Marin IJ said in an editorial that Congressman Jared Huffman had backpedaled on his long-standing superdelegate vote commitment to Hillary Clinton.

The editorial stated that Huffman would support the Democratic Party presidential candidate who won the majority of the votes in his congressional district in the June primary. They said he was smart to do so.

The corrected version of the editorial reads as follows: “Huffman now says he will vote for the candidate who wins the most pledged delegates after all the primaries and caucuses are over. It would have been more democratic if he had said he would back the candidate his district’s voters support in the June 7 primary.

Seeing the correction, an elected Bernie delegate from the Second Congressional District, Ruth Carter, immediately wrote this letter to the editor of the Marin IJ, expressing her disappointment:

Here’s a “yuge” thank you to everyone who turned out on Sunday to vote for our Coalition for Grassroots Progress slate of candidates to be delegates for Bernie at the Democratic National Convention.

Nearly a thousand people showed up, stood in the long lines, and voted. You made a difference – our candidates were the top five vote-getters!

And now it’s time to focus on getting out the vote for Bernie Sanders. One of the most effective things you can do now is sign up to phone-bank for Bernie. You can find a phone bank near you here. (It takes three steps: click on “Events,” then type in your zip-code, select how far you’re willing to travel, and sign up today!)
