Nanette Barragán was born and raised in California’s 44th district, the youngest of 11 children born to Mexican immigrants. She has dedicated her career to public service, and as the first-ever Latina elected to the Hermosa Beach City Council, Barragán has prioritized bold progressives values, including leading the fight against oil drilling in Santa Monica Bay.
She's running for Congress to ensure that every student has access to a debt-free education, expand Social Security and Medicare, and create a public option to guarantee everyone can obtain quality health insurance.
Carol Shea-Porter was the first woman elected to federal office in NH. She has never accepted corporate PAC or DC lobbyist money, and has spent her professional life serving others.
Carol has been endorsed by nearly every major union because they know she is a fighter for American workers. New Hampshirites in her district know that she’s been a consistent voice for raising the minimum wage and expanding Social Security and Medicare benefits, benefits that people have worked their entire lives to earn.
Zephyr Teachout is an activist, lawyer, anti-corruption crusader, and nationally-known “Warren wing” rising star who organized for Howard Dean and has trained other candidates from across the country on Wall Street reform and campaign finance reform issues.
When Zephyr challenged corporate Democrat Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary for governor in 2014, she won the majority of counties — shocking political observers. Now she’s running for Congress, for an open seat in a swing district.
The current congressman, Jim McDermott, is retiring from this district. He’s been a huge progressive champion, and we need to make sure someone just as wonderful takes his place. That’s Pramila!
She’s a state senator who spent the last 25 years as a Seattle organizer and activist — leading the charge for $15 minimum wage, founding an immigrant rights’ organization, and passing legislation to help rape survivors.
Rick Nolan is a small business owner, champion of working people, and one of the most effective members of congress. The 30 years Rick spent building his factory business in Emily, Minnesota allowed him to see firsthand the grim consequences of a vanishing middle class. It’s what inspired him to run for congress.
Rick has been endorsed by Bernie Sanders in his bid for reelection to Minnesota’s 8th congressional district because he has consistently gone to bat for ordinary Americans: Workers, seniors, and students alike. He has been a reliable opponent of cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits, and even joined other members of Congress outside the White House gates to protest proposed cuts.
Rick is headed for a November rematch with his 2014 opponent – Republican extremist and Trump supporter Stewart Mills – whom he edged out by just 3,700 votes two years ago.
Mike Honda has dedicated his life to public service, first in 1965, when he heeded President Kennedy’s call to join the Peace Corps. He has taught high school science and has sat on his local school board. Mike will continue to stand up for economic justice and fairness for all communities.
“My priority has always been and will always be defending and fighting for the progressive values that so many within this district share,” Mike recently wrote in the San Jose Mercury News. “I am proud of my track record of delivering for middle class families.”
His Wall Street- and billionaire-backed opponent shopped around for a while before deciding which district to run in, while Mike Honda was in Congress standing up for civil rights, a living wage for all Americans, and expanding access to healthcare.
Russ Feingold led the fight for campaign finance reform before it was cool. Despite opposition from Republicans and powerful interests, he beat the odds and passed the strongest reforms since Watergate: The McCain-Feingold law. In her book, Elizabeth Warren praised Russ for standing with her in an epic battle against the big banks (before she was in the Senate):
“Russ Feingold of Wisconsin and Paul Wellstone of Minnesota were barely into their second terms. I imagine each one of them could have used some hefty campaign contributions from the banking industry, but that didn’t matter. They joined the fight with energy and enthusiasm — and I will be forever grateful.”
We're also working to Take Back the Senate, by making calls for:
Now seeking to represent Illinois in the United States Senate, Tammy was elected to the House of Representatives in 2012, where she has been an active voice for Illinois families. Following her career as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army, Tammy worked as an advocate for Veterans at both the state and federal level.
In Congress, Tammy is focused on growing our economy by advocating for small businesses, investing in infrastructure, improving the lives of our Veterans and cutting government waste and fraud.
Catherine Cortez Masto is running in a tight race to become to first Latina ever elected to the U.S. Senate. During her time as Nevada Attorney General, she took on special interests and stood up to powerful corporations on behalf of everyday Americans. In the Senate, she'll be a powerful ally for Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
