    1. This looks like the last primary update page for this year…

    Though technically Louisiana has their “jungle” primaries on general election day, and their runoffs in December.

    Just one update here is to note that Cynthia Nixon lost tonight in the last relevant primary battle.  :(  Anyone have any other third party candidates, etc. that I might have missed, add a comment to this page on those that you think should be added to this list.  In about a week, when hopefully I have a new job, and subsequently a place to live and my life isn’t too crazy, I think I’ll put up another page, just with those candidates still in the race that we want people to vote for in November.  Keep this one as a testament to all of the great candidates that stuck it out to the end, but have one that has a simple “who to vote for” message in November.  I want to make sure that one has all candidates we should have on it.  I’m not sure when I’ll get it done, as the next few weeks are going to be a bit crazy for me, but hopefully the edited down list won’t take as long to post as each one of these have been when they have gotten as long as they have now.

      6. In WA 3rd district

      In WA 3rd district, Carolyn long (D) is running against Butler Herrera (R, multiple-term).

      Long I believe is a dnc dem with substantial money & seeming grass-roots support behind her, but she’s probably better than butler-Herrera.

    3. Add Angelika Purkis for Florida's 12 district.

    Go in about 5 minutes on the video on this page to hear her comments.  She sounds pretty good.

    Good vote to send a message to establishment dems here!

    Also added Dave Johnson, who’s a Green Party candidate running as an independent write-in for Florida’s 15th district.  He has recommendation here, and notes on his facebook page above that he’s been working for Bernie’s campaign earlier…

    https://www.reddit.com/r/SandersForPresident/comments/98i6qc/recommendations_for_progressive_candidates_in_the/

    Gave him a (*) as he’s not on the general wikipedia link above, but he’s in ballotpedia page here…

    4. Add Michael White for Wisconsin Governor…

    Looks like a good alternative from the corporate duopoly there…

    Here’s a speech he gave earlier to get an idea of what he stands for…

    8. I don't know if you're aware of Ballotpedia or not,

    but other than your great lists and links, it’s my go-to site for what my local ballot is going to look like and who to research further.

    Thanks for all your detailed work, too! :hi:

      10. The difference is that this list shows how progressives are doing.

      I find this very important.  We progressives need to be aware of how the movement is doing around the nation and this list is precious.

    9. According to Ballotpedia,

    you can scratch off the Green Party candidate for Texas Governor:

    Janis Richards was a Green Party candidate for Governor of Texas. Richards withdrew before the general election scheduled for November 6, 2018.

    11. In WA House Dist 8 Kim Schrier is running in a tight race with a

    Right Wing wacko Dino Rossi. The incumbent Ricker is not running.  Dr. Schrier is endorsed by Brand New Congress according to this article.  https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/washington/articles/2018-08-08/the-latest-mcmorris-rodgers-challenges-brown-to-3-debates

     

    I want to express my greatest appreciation for the work that goes into this OP.  Thank you and I hope you do it again in the future.
