*** No candidate for U.S. Senate has been endorsed by the CDP ***
Last year, you joined me in an unlikely but righteous journey.
The status quo wasn’t working, so we decided to take on the culture of complacency by demanding accountability and fight from our representatives in Washington.
And in February, 56% of your fellow Executive Board members decided to reject this broken system by voting to endorse my candidacy. And although we fell short, we sent a message to the rest of the nation by letting them know that here in the Golden State – we are Democrats not just in name, but in action.
I’m running for U.S. Senate because I believe it’s time to stop biding our time, biting our tongue and playing at the margins. It’s not about pushing anyone to the right or the left, but rather, pushing our nation forward with new ideas and a fresh perspective.
When D.C. hems and haws at the idea of a $15 dollar minimum wage, Medicare-for-all, criminal justice reform, immigrant rights and retirement security plans for workers without access to one, in California we don’t play second fiddle; we lead.
When we come together next weekend in Oakland for our Executive Board meeting, there will be a vote to endorse in the U.S. Senate race. We can win this, but I need your help.
