Progressive Rising Announces Congressional Endorsements

OMAHA, NE: Progressive Rising is announcing the following Congressional endorsements for the general election, Nov 3rd, 2020. Progressive Rising is a non-connected PAC that aligns itself with the current Progressive movement emboldened by the ideas of progressive leadership like those of Bernie Sanders & AOC.  We will support Progressive candidates around the nation who support Medicare For All Single-Payer Healthcare and a Green New Deal. Racial Justice, Rural & Ag Reform and accepting NO corporate PAC money are also important considerations. In 2020, we also endorsed a couple of Senate races that could help get Bernie Sanders the Chairmanship of an important Senate Committee and get Mitch McConnell out of Majority Leadership, so don’t hate us too much. We did endorse two Greens.
