FiveThirtyEight Senate Forecast Released


FiveThirtyEight, the website run by polling guru Nate Silver has released their Senate Forecast. Here is a rundown of how our Senate Candidate Endorsements are doing.


Patty Murray

In 1992, Senator Patty Murray’s first campaign cost $1.2 million. In 2016, her campaign could cost more than $20 million.

Who is the opponent with pockets deep enough to make Murray spend that much? The Koch brothers.

Russ Feingold

When we’re asked to give an example of a true progressive, Russ Feingold is the first name that comes to mind.

From McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform, to his opposition to the Iraq war, to standing alone against the Patriot Act, Feingold has never hesitated to stand by his principles and stand up to Republicans or Democrats whenever necessary.

Kamala Harris

Tammy Duckworth

Illinois is critical for Democrats to take back control of the U.S. Senate — and we couldn’t ask for a more resilient candidate than Tammy Duckworth.

Polling well in her campaign against incumbent Mark Kirk, one of the most vulnerable Republican senators this election cycle, Duckworth is positioned to turn this red seat blue in 2016.

Catherine Cortez Masto

With Senator Harry Reid retiring and control of the U.S. Senate at stake, the Koch brothers and the GOP have made this Nevada Senate seat a priority target. In other words, money will be no object for the Republican in this race.

Ted Strickland

“This is our country, our Senate, our fight – for higher wages, for fair trade, for education and opportunity for all.”

That’s why Ted Strickland decided to run for the U.S. Senate. He says he wants to save the American Dream by going back to the basics.

Congressman Ben Ray Lujan discussing the likelihood of Democrats regaining control of the House.

On “With All Due Respect,” Congressman Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, chairman on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, discusses the likelihood of Democrats regaining control of the House, President Obama’s record on terrorism and how Hillary Clinton is doing with Hispanic voters.




We agree with Kamala Harris, Trump is unfit for office.


VIA The Sacramento Bee

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump drew criticism Tuesday from California Attorney General and U.S. Sen. candidate Kamala Harris for saying that Judge Gonzalo Curiel has a “conflict of interest” in presiding over the Trump University lawsuit because of his Mexican heritage.

Along with our support, Kamala Harris has picked up some pretty hefty endorsements including President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Chuck Schumer.




Sign On: Petition the Democratic Party Platform Committee


No matter which Democratic candidate for president you are pulling for, we can all agree on the issues Bernie Sanders wants to address:

  • $15 per hour minimum wage
  • Repeal Glass-Steagall

  • Expand Social Security
  • Free college tuition
  • Ban fracking
