    5. Adding independent Lee McQueen for Arkansas 4th district…

    She describes her campaign as “Bernie Sanders” style and looks to have a good progressive agenda in her campaign.

    6. Replacing Jim Moss for Arizona Senate seat with Deedra Abboud…

    Jim Moss has withdrawn from the race.  Deedra sounds like a good candidate with the right values, though she might be a long shot.  Certainly a better choice than Blue Dog Dem Krysten Sinema for this seat.

    7. Adding Ann-Marie Adams for Connecticut senate race…

    She’s on this list along with many other members of our list on this page.

      8. This article also lists Tamika Lyles as a progressive challenger for Florida…

      … in its senate race.  Adding her.  Though would like to get more data on her supporting Bernie Sanders style progressives.

    9. Adding Jensen Bohren for Mississippi Senate seat…

    He’s mentioned as a “Bernie Sanders activist” in this article…

    https://empowertexans.com/texans-in-dc/bannon-cost-gop-incumbents-seats/

    In Mississippi, Sen. Wicker may well be forced to fend off a strong primary challenge. State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-Ellis County), who came within an eyelash of unseating Sen. Thad Cochran (R) in 2014, may enter the primary race. Regardless of the Republican nomination outcome, how do the Democrats win the general election here? At this point, the only potential general election candidate is Bernie Sanders campaign activist Jensen Bohren, who will not prove credible. The one Democrat who could be competitive, Attorney General Jim Hood (D), has shown no interest in becoming a Senate candidate.

    Let’s prove these corporate media’s propaganda false the way they keep trying to push onto us their view of what will happen counter to what most people want.  Help this guy win.

    And note this posts like these on his facebook page.

    10. Add new Justice Democrat endorsements…

    Add candidate Derrick Crowe for Texas 21st district, and removed Rixi Melton as our earlier candidate for this district, who withdrew earlier.  Here’s an interview with the Young Turks for those wanting to see him talk on a number of things to help confirm whether you want to support him.  Haven’t had time to watch this fully, but those voting in this district definitely should.  Sounds like a good candidate.

    Adding new Justice Democrat Colin Allred to Texas 32nd district, who joins Danielle Pellett as one of two candidates we feel should be looked at for this district.

    Added endorsements by Justice Democrats to exiting list entries Brianna Westbrook (Arizona 8th), Brent Welder (Kansas 3rd), and Jenny Marshall (North Carolina 5th).

    11. Addin Paul Knupp for Iowa's 3rd district…

    Pete D’Allesandro is a very good candidate we already have who was very visible at the People’s Summit amongst other things.  But Paul Knupp is also trying to appeal to us if you look at his web site as well.

    https://knuppforcongress.org/

    He’s also endorsed on this page too.

    http://freethoughtequality.org/2018-endorsements/

    I need to check the other candidates not already in our list on this page too.  I think perhaps this site emphasizes that their candidates are against religious dogmatic stances which might color their endorsements more towards how their views align on religion, and not necessarily their views on other political stances we also need to sync up with.

    I admire what you’ve done so far and can see that it takes a lot of dedication but I know that your work will pay off.

      14. Doug Jones is definitely better than the Republican Moore…

      He doesn’t excite me as much as others who if I had to be careful about money like many of us do, I’d rather spend on other races where we get a better progressive.  But here’s the wikipedia page to help look at this race, and look at things like Jones’ endorsements which include the likes of Neera Tanden, etc.
