        3. Finally saw it go up

        Wanted to beat you to the punch for once. :)

        Gotta go to turkey dinner! Hope you have a great thanksgiving!

          5. Thanks for the wishes. Probably will be home alone this year for it…

          Hope you have a good celebration today!

            6. I wish I could bring you with me

            Until yesterday afternoon, I thought I would be home alone as well. Got a last minute invitation.

            :hug:

              8. I just now got a last minute Thanksgiving dinner from next door neighbor…

              Just brought over a plate of food for me!  So, the world is still blessed, even if sometimes it feels like it isn’t!  Thankful now, even if still home alone!

                11. I'm so glad they thought about you

                I think there were more than a few people alone in my apartment building yesterday. I think next year, I’ll cook a dinner and invite people from thebuilding

                Sorry you were alone. I was thinking about you

      16. Add Steve Schwartzberg for Illinois

      He looks like a good candidate that is definitely favored by Bernie Sanders supporters and his own campaign web site makes it clear that he “stands where Bernie Sanders does”.  Now both he and Sameena Mustafa aren’t listed amongst the three candidates we have in wikipedia.  Will try to look in to that more too.

      Going through this reddit page now to get more Bernie candidates for Illinois races…

        19. Thank you

        By the way, Luis Gutierrez is not running again.

        Quigley needs to go. Hopefully, he has a progressive ready to oust him

    4. Adding Henry John Bear for Maine 2nd district…

    Looks like he just registered as a Green and entered the race this week.  Note on this page that he attended Bernie Sanders rallies in 2016…

    https://the-maine-paparazzi-roger.smugmug.com/MaineDemocraticParty/160302-BernieSanders-Portland/i-k5zMpfw/

    @cleavesforcongress, our JPR member already running in this race, are you still running?  I noticed when looking up John here, that you aren’t in Wikipedia’s pages any more for this race.  I just want to make sure that you aren’t a victim of some of the anti-populist progressive censorship campaigns that seem to be happening on those pages at times there.  I see you still posting to your twitter page, but note that your FB congress page is offline now.

    In any case, I think it is important to have both of you listed here, especially if Maine gets ranked choice voting deployed by 2018, and we can use it to make sure that you and John are at the top of voters’ ratings in the general election.  And can you speak for Henry here?  Is he a good guy too that you would recommend in this race if you aren’t still running?

    7. Just updated Samuel Ronan candidate in Ohio to running as a Republican…

    He still looks like a decent candidate, and I have a separate thread to discuss this concern of him running as a Republican, even if he was a good Democrat who ran for DNC chairmanship and noted that the primaries were rigged against Bernie in earlier quotes of his.

    12. Adding Todd Allen for Texas 24th…

    He seems to be a decent candidate and is endorsed by the Progressive Wing web site.  Still hoping to see more Bernie-centric stuff from him, but he sounds like he has a lot of good stances as indicated here, and on his twitter page.

    13. Add Green Party candidate Janis Richards for Texas Governor…

    This quote from her campaign site says it all…  Though it sounds like the Green Party has work to do in Texas to get her on the ballot there, she sounds like a good one to keep on our radar.

    … Politically, I was born again with the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders on November 1, 2014. I have been a political activist for Democrats from then until July 27, 2016. That is the date I quit the Democratic party and came to the Green Party. I am working to get the Green Party on the ballot in Texas. After that, I will be running a full campaign for office.

    …”

    15. Adding Marcus Lewis for Illinois' 2nd district.

    Just noted the incumbent, Robin Kelly announced she’s running again, and note that he as a competitor looks pretty good.  Here’s a photo he has of himself with Bernie on both his gofundme page here and on his campaign page.

    17. Adding Carl Spoerer for Illinois 15th district…

    He is recommended in this district by a Way of the Bern reddit as noted here:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/WayOfTheBern/comments/7c88ur/better_know_a_state_illinois_part_2/

    Some good videos showing how he stands for a lot of great stances on bringing back jobs for us, education, health care, etc.
