Adopt A Candidate

 

Following months of collaborative work with sister Indivisible Groups and our MFM Political Action Leader Team, we chose seven Congressional Seats to consider for our active support.  CONOR LAMB (PA 18) was up first for a special election to fill a vacant seat, and delivered an upset win in a district deemed unwinnable for Democrats for the past several decades. Our own leader Rick Schnure who grew up near this district even convinced his 98 year old Mom, Elise to vote for a Democrat (first time ever).  Lamb has to defend his seat in November, this time for a 2 year tenure.

We presented six additional candidates for our members to consider at our last well attended, lively group meeting. Voting also took place online. Nearly sixty activists voted and our 4 winners for ‘Adoption’ are:

MAINE DISTRICT 2 JARED GOLDEN. Jared Golden for Congress
