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. We know this is an important way to achieve our shared goals. 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 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. Please join us now in donating generously to Tim Canova–the highly qualified challenger facing Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz in Florida's 23rd Congressional District. ActBlue will automatically split your donation between Tim's campaign and PDA.
Join us in sending a message to the Party elite in a language we know they understand. Please help us by donating generously to help Tim win now! For more about how many Bernie supporters evaluate the direction Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has taken the Democratic National Committee, please read Down the 2016 Primary Home Stretch: What the DNC Doesn't Seem to Get by PDA's Executive Director, Donna Smith. We'll be sharing Donna's insightful update to this article tomorrow.
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. They've been unresponsive or even hostile to the $15 livable wage, opposing the Trans Pacific Partnership, and other critically important issues. Show the DNC you demand progress by donating generously now! Money tight? Then contact Mike Fox to get involved with our phone team. A special favor: if you're a delegate to the Democratic Convention, please contact Mike Fox to join other delegates in our discussions and planning ASAP.
In solidarity and with appreciation,
Mike Hersh for Donna, Judy, Mike F., Janis, Deb, Kimberly, and Conor–your National PDA team
