Control of the House in 2018 will be decided by a handful of Swing Districts, places where the last election was decided by a thin margin. In 2016, we lost the 49th by a slim margin of just 1,621 votes with over 310,000 cast. Come to learn, and challenge, how we can work with Doug's campaign to take back the Hill.

Our executive director Clare Crawford's op-ed on the dangers of Puzder becoming Labor Secretary and heading the department he consistently undermines. #AntiLaborSecretary "If he becomes labor secretary, Puzder will oversee those investigations into the unfair practices of his own company and many other businesses. He will have the power to make broad changes, which could include easing up on enforcement of labor laws and reducing investigations into wage theft and other unfair practices. Besides presiding over companies that violate the very laws the Labor Department enforces, Puzder has been a vocal opponent of decent workplace standards and protections for working people. With his own salary upward of $4 million, he consistently has sought to keep the incomes of many working families at rock-bottom. He has been an outspoken critic of any meaningful increase in the federal minimum wage, as well as labor regulations allowing millions of federal workers to receive overtime pay. The federal minimum wage, which hasn’t changed in eight years, amounts to $15,000 for a whole year of full-time work. That is less than Puzder’s own salary for just one day." http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opinion/commentary/sd-utbg-puzder-labor-opposition-20170126-story.html

The battle is joined: Lessons of the 2017 California Democratic ADEMs
The battle for the heart of the California Democratic Party has begun in earnest. November 8th taught millions of progressives an indelible lesson: the age of the part-time citizen is over. For too long, we have delegated power to those who hungered for it, who used it to enrich and aggrandize themselves, and who failed our Party, failed this great nation, and failed the Earth.
