    3. Adding Terry Gipson, who just announced recently a challenge to NY's Cuomo.

    This article highlights how he is looking for changes appealing to Bernie Sanders voters…

    5. Add Martin Del Rio for Indiana's Senate seat. Looks better by far…

    … than neoliberal shill Donnelly!  Maybe my old next door neighbor from high school Chris Chocola will be happy too if Donnelly gets beaten, who beat him as a Republican earlier for his House seat before Chocola went on to head up the Club for Growth for a while.  Not that I care if he’s happy or not.  But I’d rather Donnelly lose to Del Rio than a Republican for that seat of course.

    6. Add Roger Manno for Maryland's 6th district, who perhaps is better than Duck…

    I just noticed a few endorsements for him on these pages, and it sounds like progressives like him more than Duck, though of the variety of candidates running in this district, these two seem to get the most attention from progressives.  I believe that Manno entered the race later after I’d earlier put in Duck.

    This progressive web page likes him best…

    Nice endorsements here from local Bernie and labor groups!

    It was both Duck and candidate to be at the time Manno who spoke to Our Revolution earlier…

    7. Removing Dustin Ray Webb for Texas Senate…

    … as this page confirms that he withdrew from the race.

    8. Will need to create a new thread shortly…

    … but am swamped at the moment with other life issues to deal with, including problems with a long overdue upgrade to my laptop, which is being stalled by a likely Apple system bug that I think I found this week that’s keeping me from getting fully on this new machine yet and having me holding off doing a lot of things I normally do online, etc.

    Notes for changes to make in new thread.

    1. Remove Carlos Ramirez-Rosa from Illinois 4th district with his withdrawal noted here.
    2. Perhaps add new Peace and Freedom candidate Jordan Mills for CA district 50 (Issa’s district that he just announced he’s retiring from).
    3. Add Dennis Kucinich for Ohio governor.
    4. Add Bill Cimbrelo who is a good Berniecrat as shown here in this tweet who now is in Massachusett’s 9th district race.
    5. Maybe add Juliet Germanotta, who just entered Wisconsin’s Democratic primary against Ron Kind in 3rd district.  Her facebook page here has her taking a lot of good stances that I think we want to support.  Anyone find any references of her supporting Bernie or the like would seal the deal for me.
    6. Perhaps add new green candidate Eve Reyes-Aguirre for Arizona senate race, though Dem candidate Deedra Abboud is already a good one we have in that race too.  Note her stances here.
    7. Remove Martin Del Rio as a primary challenger for Donnelly in Indiana’s senate race as he just withdrew (noted here). Bill Bowser sounds like he might be a good alternative in this race, but would like to find some more definitive pages making the case for adding him to the list here.  Respond to this post if you find a good one.
    8. Perhaps add Ray Uhric who’s now a challenger for Bob Casey’s Pennsylvania senate seat.  He has an interesting blog post here where he challenges all politicians to take on the problems he considers so many of facing with debt slavery.  Or perhaps Theresa Wright, who has also just entered this race, and noted that Bernie Sanders supported her earlier in this tweet.
    9. Perhaps add Jason Childs for Alabama governor seat.  This FB post of his campaign shows his stances on the rigging of the primary against Bernie.
