Progressive Democrats Running Strong

Since 1985 we’ve supported stand up Democrats who aren’t afraid to take on the big boys and fight for ordinary Americans.

They take Big Oil, the drug companies, and Wall Street speculators. We scour races – local and national – to find Democratic candidates who will stand with working and retired families, not just the top 1%.
