DLC and DCCC, you're on notice
Advertisements [?]
I have heard way too many reports from across America where members of the DLC and/or the DCCC are sabotaging races of progressive grassroots Democrats. Frankly, I've heard enough.

If their candidates can't get the job done, they need to get the hell out of the way and let the grassroots have their chance on Capitol Hill. It's just that simple.

Two primaries down, 48 to go. We need to stay vigilant before any more qualified grassroots candidates get squeezed out by "the machine."
