When Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) launched our Run Bernie Run campaign in 2013, we had high hopes. Those hopes have not been dimmed. In fact, we are more committed to our shared political revolution now than we were when this all began. Are you with us?
We’ve Had Great Nights and Less Than Great Nights
We knew Bernie Sanders would raise critically important issues, making the same powerful case for the 99% that he's made his entire career. We had no idea he would ignite a "YUGE" political revolution mobilizing millions of voters.
Together we’re building momentum towards the massive California primary (June 7), and other primaries.
To help you get out the word, PDA is offering deep discounts on quantity purchases of Union-made We Want Bernie buttons, bumperstickers, rally signs, and more! Visit our ActBlue page to get yours while they last!

Today, voters went to the polls in several states, and Bernie gained delegates in every single one of them. The results are not everything we’d have hoped, but they’re much better than we’d have expected just a few short months ago.
In Maryland, PDA was on the ground and on the phones working for Bernie’s Political Revolution as well as for our former Board Members Representative Donna Edwards and State Senator Jamie Raskin. Our candidates were massively outspent, but they ran intelligent, issue-based, grassroots campaigns. Donna has fallen behind in a tough race so far, and Jamie has taken a good lead. We're very proud of our Maryland candidates, and we will work with them closely in the future.
In Maryland, Bernie lost, and in Pennsylvania, he lost by a smaller margin. In Connecticut, our movement took the early lead in a close one, but it appears Clinton will pull it out. The results in Delaware were a loss, and in Rhode Island, Bernie won a solid victory. PDA made Get Out The Vote (GOTV) calls in all of these states, struggling for every delegate we could elect. We're still with Bernie, but this was never about one candidate or one campaign.
