Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and Bernie Sanders endorsed progressive activist Tim Canova for Congress because we are committed to electing a governing progressive majority to Congress with candidates like Tim. We're doing this by engaging, empowering, and electing progressive Democrats.
Please join us now in donating generously to Tim Canova–the highly qualified challenger facing deposed Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (DWS) in Florida's 23rd Congressional District. (ActBlue will automatically split your donation between Tim's campaign and PDA.) Or click on the donation links to send a check.
Vote by mail ballots are already coming in, and the primary is this month. If you can't afford to donate to Tim, please contact Mike Fox to phone bank for Tim. With your help, we'll empower Florida voters to send a clear message: progressives demand fairness in elections and real representation in Congress for all–not just for the powerful elite.
Please join us in calling for more democracy in the Democratic Party. We're working to build a party that welcomes the waves of new young voters and long-time voters alike! It's not enough to elect just any Democrat to office. Some are Democrats in Name Only. We must demand and strongly support progressive candidates for every campaign, from president to precinct chair.
Join us in sending a message to the Party elite in a language we know they understand: dollars and cents. Please help us by donating generously to help Tim win now! The DNC has not committed itself to ending the influence of big money in politics, and has not taken the steps we expected as voting irregularities denied thousands of Democratic voters their right to vote.
Recently, information surfaced proving Debbie Wasserman-Schultz abused her authority as Democratic National Committee Chair to rig the primary process. This violated basic principles of fairness and DNC bylaws. It also disenfranchised and divided Democrats. On top of all that, she denied having bias repeatedly, and disrespected those who questioned her.
Despite these serial violations of trust and Democratic voters' rights, the DNC didn't fire her. Instead, they allowed her to step down letting Hillary Rodham Clinton promote her, rewarding her ongoing wrongdoing. All this undermines credibility during the heat of this critical election cycle. We cannot afford to turn our heads and ignore this blatant disregard for voters when so much is at stake.
We have a choice. And that choice is an outstanding Berniecrat. Tim's a real fighter for the 99%. He's been a congressional staff member, is a college professor, has protested in the street against the TPP with us, and more. Will you help us get the word out about Tim Canova's campaign for Congress? Vote by mail ballots are already coming in, and the primary is next month. We have to stand up strong, and we have to act now. Please join us now in donating generously to Tim Canova. Money tight? Then please contact Mike Fox to phone bank for Tim.
We believe that if you help now, voters in the Florida primary will boldly elect Tim Canova and give DWS the free time she needs to engage with her "real constituents" in the power circles of the top 1% like payday loan sharks and big pharma. DWS has been so busy serving these elite, exploitative special interests, improperly rigging the primary, and running the HRC campaign–instead of doing a fair job as DNC Chair–maybe she needs some time off?
You can help us give Debbie a vacation by helping true progressive Tim Canova win his primary against her. Show that you demand progress by donating generously now! Money tight? Then contact Mike Fox to get involved with our phone team.
In solidarity and with appreciation,
Mike Hersh for Donna, Judy, Mike F., Janis, Deb, Kimberly, and Steve–your National PDA team
