    The Fight For 2018 Begins NOW!

    From David Sparks:

    The Fight For 2018 Begins NOW!

    Dear friend of progressive politics:

    First off, I want to thank EVERYONE for their help on our 2016 campaign for the Ohio Statehouse. Despite being outspent nearly 100-1 and being attacked by a two-month long dishonest GOP smear campaign, my first bid for public office was amazingly promising. Our campaign got 40 percent of the vote, won the vote in Montgomery County, and garnered local, national and international attention.

    With that said, now is the time we build our machine for 2018!

    We need to build a solid organization for the 2018 election. This will include a full-time office in Preble County, along with a field director and an extensive on-the-ground operation to engage, persuade, register and get voters to the polls.

    We are now working to raise the funds necessary to fight the GOP and win in 2018.

    I am asking you to please donate to our efforts to win a spot in the Statehouse in the 2018 election.

    Please donate now at our campaign’s website at: votedavidsparks.org

    Thank you very much for your support.

    Together we will in 2018!

    David Sparks

    3. Sorry I'm late. Thanks, Mary.

    Are we going to have some kind of list or database or reference system for 2018 candidates? This is really inspiring.

    on edit: Loved the header!!!

    Living well is the best revenge.

      5. Yes. We're working on something now to help with activism,

      organizing and helping progressive candidates in the 2018 election.

      It may be a bit before we can get it out there but we’re working on it.

      Thank you!

    4. @votedavidsparks Campaign as an FDR Democrat!

    Dear David

    Many of us are grief stricken that the FDR party we know and have loved, is fading from sight. Please join us to bring back the party of the 2nd Bill of Rights – every single one of its planks. If this be the “litmus” test for progressive candidates, then bring it on with us!

    J ! Justice, Democrats, Justice ! P ! Primary the Corporatists ! R ! Roosevelt’s 2nd Bill of Rights !

      6. The "@" doesn't work in the title

      So I’ll put it here. :)

        7. We need to focus on the Senate

        Get some Berniecrats in the Senate so the SC dosen’t go total Clarance Thomas.

        The House may be fucked beyond control. However, it doesn’t hurt to try.

          8. Yes, we need REAL PROGRESSIVE candidates

          And the Senate. People with some backbone and actual morality. Not the fake Christian shit

            13. Even replacing corporate Democrats like Manchin and Heitkamp will help in 2018!

            We NEED to primary those corporate Democrats then.  Especially these two who are already trying to help Trump give us a “Clarence Thomas” court!  The sooner we replace bums like that, we’ll also help the progressives within the party retake control of it the way we need to as well!

            Vote AGAINST the race to the bottom by both corporate parties who seek to screw workers over globally!

              14. Absofuckinglutely!

              Credo has a statement asking people to sign. It states that we will not vote for any democrat who passes Gorsuch.

              I’ll try to find it

                15. We should start a new thread on primary races for 2018…

                Where we list each senate and house seat that is up for election then, and find info on who the prospective challengers (and announced ones too) for those seats.  If we can build it up to a point where a lot of people come here to to know who to vote for for Part 1 of the revolution to start then, I think it will be a big help.  Forward that link to Bernie and other progressive organizations too.

                  16. I love it

                  Please remind me in a couple weeks. I honestly don’t have time right now. We’re still dealing with glitches from the upgrade

                  But that’s a great idea!!

          9. But we should still fight for the house

            10. I didn't mean to make it sound like we should TOTALLY give up on the HOR

            It just has been a difficult battle the past few cycles with gerrymandered districts. Depressing if you ask me.

                17. I just realized that we need the House to begin Impeachment hearings

                Can’t get this slime out of the Peoples house unless we have a HOR that can begin hearings on his illegal dealings and violations to his job duties. I still have my reservations.

                  18. I bet dollars to doughnuts

                  It won’t happen. And frankly, I think pence would be as bad
