    1. New version with updates to reflect endorsements by Justice Democrats…

    Added Roza Calderon for CA-04, and replaced Rob Quist for Montana (since he hasn’t announced to run again after losing the special election) with Justice Democrat John Heenan.

    Updated endorsement notes for:

    Peter Jacob, Amy Vilela, Dotty Nygard, and Paul Perry.

    2. Added Dan Canon for Indiana's 9th district…

    Another candidate for this seat, Liz Watson, turned up in my searches, who also might be good too to add here, but I’m holding out until I hear more the breadth of her support on issues that she and other Berniecrats care about.  Local Berniecrats of “Our Revolution” in Indiana chose to endorse him here as he notes on his own campaign web site.

    Liz Watson sounds like she’s got a decent position on trying to rebuild job opportunities for the 99% when she participated on a speaking tour on this topic attended by Bernie Sanders, as she notes on her own web site.

    Today’s article on her:

    http://www.idsnews.com/article/2017/09/democratic-congressional-candidate-for-9th-district-looks-to-break-cycle

    This article mentions both her and Canon from a progressive web site there…

    http://theprogressivewing.com/category/candidates-2019/dan-canon/

     

    I’m still hesitant about adding her to the list just yet until I hear more about her and others from the Bernie camp elsewhere closer to her campaign endorsing her the way Our Revolution did Canon for this seat already.  Let me know how you think.  Especially from those who might know her in Indiana.

    7. Cascadiance,

    You are really ON IT!  The Humanist Report mentioned that Denny Heck in state of Washington’s 10th District is being primaryed by Tamborine Borelli.  She’s a real firebrand!

    9. Add Bob Solomon who enters race in Pennsylvania's 18th district…

    We already have an entry supporting Bernie in this race, but two more just entered.  One a Clinton supporter to avoid, and the other describes himself as an “ardent Bernie Supporter”.  Read more here in this article today.

    10. Add Adam Coker for North Carolina's 13th district…

    Though the media appears to be intentionally ignoring his candidacy as they do with so many other progressive candidates for 2018, he does seem to have some notoriety from progressive entities.   He notes himself his own endorsements by local groups such as Triad for Bernie, Greensboro for Bernie, and Triad Progressives in the North Carolina area.

    https://www.facebook.com/adamfromnc/posts/1043372415755984

    Progressive wing has an entry for him here…

    http://theprogressivewing.com/adam-cokers-campaign-for-congress-nc-13/

    TYT has a segment that talks about him at the People’s Summit, but sorry TYT, I can’t afford to pay for my news these days like so many of us can’t.  Perhaps others who have subscribed to them can tell us what it says about Adam and others there.

    https://tytnetwork.com/2017/06/14/peoples-summit-2017-adam-coker/

    Anyway, this all looks good enough for me to add him to our list.

    11. Add Jack Love to Nevada district 3

    Seems like I’m having a lot of JPR login session bugs as I had to save this edit around three different times between arbitrarily being logged out, and perhaps having a stale session with one that I backed up for my previous edit…  Note I have been pretty active, having just added another candidate a couple of minutes ago to this same thread, so it should NOT have timed out my login session!

    Anyway, Jack Love is another endorsed by the progressive wing here, and has a good facebook page on his mentions of Bernie Sanders as what inspires his agenda too.

    12. Removed Alabama special election entry to replace Sessions…

    … as Dan Hansen just recently lost the primary to be the nominated candidate for that special election.

    13. Added Tom Cramer for Washington's 8th district…

    Found this article that called him the “Bernie Sanders” of this district, though it was a lukewarm endorsement of him as such.  Some questioning of his abilities in this article…  But he’s the only candidate reportedly committing to Medicare for all in this race.

    14. Add Samuel Ronan for Ohio district 1

    He seems to be a strong Bernie Sanders and anti-neoliberal establishment candidate as the only Democratic candidate running in Ohio’s 1st district now.
