When it comes down to it, there are two types of state senators in Albany: those who caucus with the Democrats, and those who vote to empower the party of Donald Trump.
For seven years, the Trump Democrats of the Independent Democratic Conference have joined in an alliance with Republicans.
Last weekend, over 600 activists, community members, and WFP supporters came out in force to kick off our 2018 campaign and hear from the seven progressive Working Families Democrats who are courageously taking on the IDC.
The seven Working Families Democrats taking on members of the IDC, on stage together for the first time: Zellnor Myrie, John Duane, Robert Jackson, Jessica Ramos, Rachel May,Jasmine Robinson, and Alessandra Biaggi. Read more about them all here.
Robert Jackson, progressive champion and candidate for State Senate in the 31st District in Upper Manhattan, fires up the crowd.
Jessica Ramos, mom, renter, lifelong straphanger, and the WFP endorsed candidate in the 13th Senate District in Queens (along with her son Tomás).
Rachel May, the WFP candidate for State Senate in the 53rd District in Central New York.
We couldn’t be more excited to get to work to elect all of these candidates and send progressive majorities to both the U.S. Congress and in Albany in 2018 who will stand unequivocally with working families.
