Progressive Democrats of America endorsed Rep. Alan Grayson because he stands up for the 99% and never backs down. He challenges the bipartisan Florida special interest political machine, and he endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. We want a Senator who will not only protect Social Security, but expand it—someone who will fight for “Healthcare Not Warfare.”
With vote by mail ballots out now and the primary in less than two weeks, right wing Democrats and their allies in the media are smearing Alan with false and discredited accusations. He needs your help now to overcome the dishonest dirty tricks! We need him to champion our progressive causes in the Senate. Please contribute generously to help elect him now!
We endorsed Alan Grayson for U.S. Senate from Florida several months ago because he stands with us demanding progress on the issues PDA has long advocated. We are confident that the hard-hitting honesty he brought House of Representatives will bring much-needed reality checks into the U.S. Senate. Pitch in whatever you can afford right now to help elect my friend Alan to the Senate!
Rep. Grayson fearlessly opposes bad trade deals like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and has taken the lead opposing and exposing them. He courageously leads efforts to prevent unnecessary, costly wars when too many members of Congress enable these disastrous, deadly foreign policy debacles. Alan has long been an outspoken, staunch supporter of healthcare reform that saves money and lives His strong support of veterans’ demonstrates his ability to oppose war while also defending our military personnel and veterans who bear the actual burdens of waging war.
Alan is a true progressive, with an acerbic wit and strong principles. That put a target on his back from the moment he took his seat in Congress, and the right wing Republicans have been after him for years. This time, the corporate Dems have joined in, pushing for a DINO (Democrat in Name Only) candidate over Alan for Senate.

Not content with backing a fellow hack, the establishment insiders have been using the most reprehensible dirty tricks—even exploiting a painful Grayson family tragedy and rehashing proven-false allegations—to wage a war of innuendo against Alan. Their goal is clear. They've actually admitted they're trying to drive Alan out of the race. We know he doesn't back down, but he needs our help right now. Please contribute generously now to help elect my friend Alan Grayson!
These concerted personal attacks on Alan are intimidating Grayson supporters, and distracting Florida voters from the candidates' positions on the issues—especially the fact that Alan is the top real Democrat in the contest. His main opponent, Rep. Murphy, is a lifelong Republican with an unbroken record of right wing positions. Murphy even helped lead the Benghazi witch hunt against the Obama Administration including Secretary Clinton.
If elected to the Senate, Alan will be a strong leader for the people. If his opponent sneaks in, he will vote with his fellow servants of the 1% and Wall Street, just as he's done in during his entire tenure the House. We need Alan, a public servant who will stand up for and with the 99% in the Senate, not another DINO who is considering returning to the GOP fold. Please contribute generously now to help elect my friend Alan Grayson!
To paraphrase Harry S. Truman: Given a choice between two Republicans, the voters will pick a Republican. Florida deserves a real choice. Let's make sure there's a Democrat on the ballot in November. Act now! Vote by mail ballots are coming in every day, and the primary is in a month. Support Alan Grayson now. If you can’t afford to make a donation, please contact me to get on our phone team.

Alan fights for the progressive change we need, on the issues which the PDA has long advocated. We’re confident that the hard-hitting honesty he brought to the U.S. House of Representatives will bring some much needed backbone to the U.S. Senate.

Alan Grayson is one of the most adamant opponents of horrible trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and has opposed unnecessary and costly wars, while leading as an outspoken advocate for health reform that saves money and lives. After 90 percent of PDA’s Florida membership voted to endorse Alan, our unanimous national endorsement recognized his record for getting good, progressive things done.
Alan appreciates our support. He said, “Democrats win statewide races only when they have true support from the grassroots of the party. That’s just who the Progressive Democrats of America are. With that national army of progressive warriors standing at my side, I know that we can bring a justice, equality, and peace agenda to the U.S. Senate. I’m truly honored to have their endorsement.” Please contribute generously now to help elect my friend Alan Grayson!
