Our Revolution Announces Formation of Board
WASHINGTON -- Our Revolution on Monday announced the formation of its board. The diverse coalition of eleven former elected officials, organizational leaders and grassroots activists join the board to continue the work they started as volunteers and surrogates for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, mobilizing progressives across the country to transform American politics.

“I'm incredibly excited to continue the work that Bernie and so many others started in order to further our shared progressive agenda,” said former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores. “It's truly an honor to work alongside the talented Our Revolution board and staff, who are as committed as I am to the future of our political movement.”
Full board list below:

Nina Turner - Fmr. Ohio State Senator
Deborah Parker - Native American Leader
Ben Jealous - Civil Rights Leader
Jim Hightower - Political Leader, National Radio Commentator & Writer
Jim Zogby - Arab American Human Rights Leader
Huck Gutman - Former Chief of Staff for Senator Bernie Sanders
Jane Kleeb - Environmental Activist
Lucy Flores - Fmr. Nevada Assemblywoman
Larry Cohen - Labor
Catalina Velasquez - Immigration, Reproductive Justice and Trans Queer Liberation Activist
Shailene Woodley - Actress and Environmental Activist

Think carefully about this which even if true ( I doubt it) is not me too.

Electoral College Map...we need a centrist candidate to win the rustbelt to stop Trump.

Please consider that in 18, it was moderates that flipped the house. We need to attract independents and maybe some anti-Trump Republicans.

I would like to point out that should Sen. Sanders win the primary and hopefully

the election, a Republican governor would appoint the next Senator from Vermont. We need to take the Senate and can not afford to give up Vermont. This is why although I love him, I was glad Sherrod Brown (Ohio) decided not to run. I am not a Sanders supporter for full disclosure. I don't care for Sen. Sanders but even if I did I would be concerned about the Senate.

GOP meddles in Democratic nomination with takedown of O'Rourke

This is hilarious! The GOP claims that Beto reeks of white privilege and is 'out of step' with his (Beto's) party. Hard to believe they expect people to fall for this crap. What are they afraid of? Could a Beto nomination turn Texas blue?


Yesterday the last car rolled down the line at Lordstown GM in Lordstown Ohio, I wept as I

witnessed this. Many watching the last moments face ruin and bankruptcy as there are not enough jobs to go around. MY son (twenty something) was lucky he was sent to Indiana last summer. Lordstown GM closed because of steel tariffs. Donald Trump is to blame.

It is simply to costly to make small cars in this country anymore-the tariffs combined with the poor sales of small cars sent the jobs overseas...and thousands will lose their jobs a result. The next time we have a gas price increase. Non-American workers will make the money. Foreign nations will profit and not us. The country that gave us automobiles will not longer manufacture them. It really is a dark day in the Unite States and does not bode well for our future. Below is information about the plant.
