General Election Endorsements and Update

Marcia Ranglin-Vassell and Jason Knight are two of the great champions for working families that won their primaries in September. Now, the conservative incumbents they beat are waging write in campaigns against them in November citing their ability to get votes from Trump voters and the NRA. So we need to prove yet again that values like $15 minimum wage and paid sick days are what voters actually want. Help us win for Marcia and Jason on November 8th.

We also have some awesome opportunities this month to defend progressive champions that have been serving in the State House and to win some new seats. Here is the list of the other WFP endorsed candidates with races hanging in the balance of November 8th:
