      1. New thread now…

      Adding updates noted at the end of the 28th thread here.

      https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/2018-election-progressive-candidates-28/#post-880201

      Removed Carlos Ramirez-Rosa from Illinois 4th district as he withdrew…

      http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-ramirez-rosa-chuy-garcia-congress-20180109-story.html

      Add Bill Cimbrelo for Massachusetts 9th district, with his Bernie supporting notes here on how the system was rigged against him in 2016.

      https://twitter.com/Bill_Cimbrelo/status/750383364499238912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthebuzzinsider.com%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2Fbernie-sanders-supporters-agree-with-trump-the-system-is-rigged%2F

        2. Adding Dennis Kucinich who just announced he's running for Ohio governor.

        Still has a lot more paperwork to file before it is official which for now is why I have (*) next to his entry.

        3. Sean Thom is running for NJ house district #2, not the senate.

        Not sure how I’d added him incorrectly for the Senate earlier.  Moving him down to the house race.

      4. Found withdrawal announcement for Pierre Beauregard and removing him now…

      He’s endorsing candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar in this race on exiting.  Had problems fundraising as this post notes.

      5. Found withdrawal announcement for Dean Pruitt for Illinois 12th district…

      Removing him.  Too bad there’s not another clearly good challenger for this seat.

      8. Dennis Duncan of California district 1 just now removed from Wikipedia…

      Claims that he has withdrawn, but don’t see any online documentation on this.  Putting a star next to his entry now.

      9. John Messmer in Missouri's 2nd district sounds like a good new candidate…

      Adding him after he has notes on this page on how the 2016 election was rigged for Clinton and has a lot of good positions including supporting proportional representation and ranked choice voting on his campaign site linked above.

      12. Replacing Nathan Arroyave who's withdrawn with his endorsement Sara Dady…

      Here’s his withdrawal notice and his endorsement of Sara Dady for Illinois’ 16th district.

      13. Replaced withdrawn Martin Del Rio with Bill Bowser for Donnelly's senate seat…

      Martin Del Rio just withdrew from the race as noted here…

      http://indypolitics.org/del-rio-drops-out/

      Bowser sounds reasonable and Reddit’s Feel the Bern seems to like him as a challenger…

      15. Adding Ryan Khojasteh, a second Berniecrat challenger to Nancy Pelosi

      Just saw him added today to Wikipedia this last week, and from this article’s content, sounds like he supported Bernie in his 2016 campaign too.   Just hoping that he and Jaffe don’t have a bad effect on splitting the Bernie supporters vote to keep them out of the Jungle Primary runoff in November.  We NEED to take this seat by one of these two challengers if we can take back the House to get a new Speaker of the House perhaps with more progressive credentials!

      16. Adding another Bernie supporting challenger, Jay Chen, to California district 39

      He’s got a history with helping Bernie’s campaign in 2016 as a delegate and on his SoCal steering committee as noted here:

      http://www.laweekly.com/news/bernie-bros-rejoice-sanders-campaign-loves-la-6928597

      Again, now with three candidates in this race, I hope we don’t lose out with another bad jungle primary split.

      17. Adding David Strider another Berniecrat independent for Washington Senate seat

      He’s endorsed by Revolution Funding page here…

      https://revolutionfunding.org/candidates/

      … and is also noted as a Bernie supporter here too.

      18. Removing JPR's Phil Cleaves who's withdrawn from Maine rep's race…

      Sad to see one of ours pull out of the race…  @cleavesforcongress, let us know how things are going, and if you are looking to do anything else politically that we can help you out with.  Found this news a bit ago about you pulling out and endorsing independent candidate Tiffany Bond in this race now.

      http://www.sunjournal.com/democratic-2nd-district-congressional-race-heats-up/

      If you are still reading stuff here, let us know how Tiffany would be a good choice for us too with any postings you can put on here on her that can help us see where she fits our needs too.  If I get convinced, I’ll also make sure she’s on wikipedia, where she’s missing at the moment for this race, like so many Berniecrats have been.

      Now wikipedia people are trying to purge off any one that has Ballotpedia pages as a reference to note someone’s running, I guess to make sure that if the corporate media doesn’t say anything about them, that they get purged off.
