The Endorsement of Jon Tester

But he is not a progressive? He is far from a shoe-in in November? I anticipate both of those critiques from my readers as I write this. Here are the bottom lines: Jon is a good man (don’t discount that factor!), a reliable Democratic vote in the Senate and in the current political situation the Democrats are lucky to have a Senator from deep red Montana. In other words, although it is far from assured, Tester can defend that seat in ’24 and I don’t see another Democrat that can.

I could no longer remain silent and expect others to get the job done. Today tellthetruthonthem.com endorses a more progressive than you might think Senator Ben Casey, Jr. for reelection in the Keystone State.     Continue reading The Endorsement Of Bob Casey

The Endorsement Of Claire McCaskill

Today’s article is another endorsement of what is generally considered to be a moderate Democratic Senate candidate running in a purple state. The reality is that any progressive and/or patriotic Missourian should vote to reelect Senator Claire McCaskill this November. Doubt me? Let’s explore.
