Down ticket progressives
One of the Stop Bernie tactics I've seen implemented revolves around the idea that Bernie's plans will get no support in Congress. Realistically it's hard to completely dismiss that. Money will flow in the halls of Congress like the Mississippi River at flood stage in attempts to stop any bills that coincide with most of what he's proposing. So when I got an email from his campaign this evening asking for a donation that would be divided up between him and twelve other progressive candidates it caught my eye. There are several names on the list that I know absolutely nothing about and a couple that I've never even heard of but I'll trust Bernie's judgement on this and suspect those living in the respective states will recognize them and can make up their own minds.
I've sent a few small donation already but hadn't planned on sending any more until the general, (if he makes it there) but the fact is he will need progressives in Congress to help get anything worthwhile passed so I sent one more small donation tonight and I'm adding the link at the end of this note in case anyone here wants to do the same. Here are the beneficiaries of any donations received through this link.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Jessica Cisneros, Ayanna Pressley, Andru Volinsky, Ro Khanna, Rashida Tlaib, Pramila Jayapal, Ilhan Omar, Mark Pocan, Peter Welch, Georgette Gómez, Reggie Jones-Sawyer
