Arizona primary

Note that Arizona has primaries that are open to unaffiliated voters, which means that if you are registered with a party, you have to vote in their primary, but if you are not registered with any party, you can choose which primary to vote in.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate, Ballotpedia for US House or Ballotpedia for Governor. Also, here is the link to the BKAS post on Arizona – Arizona , but note that it was written way back in early-August of 2017 and candidates have changed. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes candidates that have declared since those original Arizona posts were made.


Finally, I may have missed some candidates, so if anyone else knows of a good progressive I’ve left off this list, let me know.


Governor:

Kelly Fryer or David Garcia

US Senator:

Deedra Abboud (Justice Democrat Candidate). There is also a write-in Green Party candidate, Angela Green, though she describes herself as “a Democrat with a Republican background running as a Green Candidate” and also says “I want to be known as the Queen of Capitalism and make these Red and Blue states GREEN with money, organic farming and medicinal marijuana.” She doesn’t sound like a typical Green Party candidate and I question how committed she is to the Green Party agenda.

US Representatives:

AZ-01: Incumbent “Democrat” Tom O’Halleran is extremely conservative for a Democrat. Unfortunately, he does not have a Democratic challenger. The Republican candidates are also very conservative. There is a Libertarian running as a write-in candidate, Zhani Doko. There’s not a ton of information available about him, but he seems to have fairly typical Libertarian positions (free market, fewer regulations) and opposes US involvement in foreign wars.

AZ-02: There are lots of candidates that support Medicare-for-All and other progressive positions. I recommend one of these – Mary Matiella (Justice Democrat Candidate), Billy Kovacs, Barbara Sherry or Bruce Wheeler

AZ-03: Raul Grijalva (Justice Democrat Candidate)

AZ-04: Delina Disanto is the most progressive and supports Medicare-for-All. David Brill supports allowing people to buy into Medicare as a public option.

AZ-05: Joan Greene

AZ-06: Garrick McFadden

AZ-07: The incumbent Ruben Gallego is fairly progressive and signed on to support John Conyers Medicare-for-All bill (HR 676). However, note that he has not yet joined the Medicare-for-All Caucus in Congress, making me question his support… There is a Democratic primary challenger, Catherine Miranda, but she does not call for Medicare-for-All on her website. In addition, there is a write-in Green Party candidate, Gary Swing, though I’m not sure he’s a very serious candidate. I guess voters will have to decide who they prefer in this race.

AZ-08: The only Democrat running is Hiral Tipirneni, who supports allowing people to buy into Medicare as a public option, but does not support Medicare-for-All.

AZ-09: Current Mayor of Phoenix Greg Stanton is the only Democrat running. His website has no information on the policies he supports.


Secretary of State:

There is only one Democratic candidate, Katie Hobbs. She says that “she will act to end the outrageously long lines and crippling incompetence that are preventing Arizonans from participating in our elections”.


Attorney General:

There is one Democratic candidate January Contreras. She previously worked at the Department of Homeland Security under Janet Napolitano.


Other State Executive Offices:

State Superintendent for Public Instruction – David Schapira (endorsed by Our Revolution)

State Ballot Measures:

https://ballotpedia.org/Arizona_2018_ballot_measures

Note that one of the four ballot measures would prohibit state and local governments from increasing taxes on services. This includes any kind of tax or fee. Services that are often taxed include things like hair salons, barbers, lawn care, cleaning services, etc. Now, no one wants to pay taxes, but by limiting the ability of locales to increase taxes when needed, you force cuts in government services. I’d argue that allowing state and local governments flexibility in taxing services is a good idea and I would vote “no” on this measure.

Recommendations for Progressive Candidates in the Michigan Primary (Primary August 7, but early voting happening now)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Michigan primary

Note that Michigan has open primaries so you can choose which party’s primary you want to vote in when you get to the polling place.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate, Ballotpedia for US House or Ballotpedia for Governor. Also, here are the links to the BKAS posts on Michigan – Michigan 1 and Michigan 2, but note that they were written way back in mid-October of 2017 and candidates have changed since then. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes all the up-to-date candidates that have declared.


Governor:

Abdul El-Sayed (Justice Democrat Candidate and endorsed by Our Revolution, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) or Jennifer Kurland (Green Party Candidate). Write-in Democratic candidate William “Bill” Cobbs has a reasonable platform too, but doesn’t mention Medicare-for-All.

US Senator:

Marcia Squier (Green Party Candidate)

US Representatives:

MI-01: The incumbent Republican is unopposed except for a write-in Democratic candidate, Matthew “Matt” Morgan. Morgan had failed to get enough valid signatures to get on the ballot, but is running as a write-in candidate. Morgan supports Medicare-for-All and other progressive positions. Here is how you can write him in and get a progressive challenger to Jack Bergman for the Fall election.

MI-02: Robert Davidson (Justice Democrat and BrandNew Congress Candidate)

MI-03: There are two Democratic candidates Cathy Albro and Fred Wooden. Neither of them directly states support for Medicare-for-All, though both kind of dance around that idea on their websites and talk about needing to cover everyone. You can read their platforms and see who you want to support. I think Albro might be more progressive overall.

MI-04: There are two Democratic candidates Ziggy Kozicki and Jerry Hilliard. Both suggest that we should move towards Medicare-for-All. Their other platform positions are a bit sketchy, but Kozicki also says that he supports a living wage.

MI-05: Kathy Goodwin (Working Class Party)

MI-06: David Benac (Justice Democrat and BrandNew Congress Candidate) or Rich Eichholz

MI-07: Steve Friday (endorsed by Our Revolution)

MI-08: Chris Smith

MI-09: Andy Levin or Ellen Lipton or Andrea Kirby (Working Class Party). Note that there is also a Green Party candidate, John McDermott, but website does not really talk at all about the issues and I don’t think he’s a viable candidate. I would not recommend voting for him.

MI-10: I think Mike McCarthy is probably the most progressive Democratic candidate choice. Here is an article about him. There is also a Green Party candidate, Harley Mikkelson, who supports Medicare-for-All and other progressive positions.

MI-11: Fayrouz Saad (Justice Democrat Candidate)

MI-12: Incumbent Debbie Dingell supports Medicare-for-All and was one of the founders of the Medicare-for-All Caucus in Congress. Another option is Niles Niemuth running on the Socialist Equality Party line, though his website has no details on his policy positions. Gary Walkowitz is also running on the Working Class Party line.

MI-13: This race is a bit confusing, since John Conyers resigned. There will be a special election to fill the seat until the end of Conyers term (January 2019) and a separate race to elect a new Congressman who will start in 2019 and continue until January 2021. Slightly different candidates are running in these two elections. For the Special election to fill the seat until January 2019, the progressive choices are Rashida Tlaib (Justice Democrat Candidate and endorsed by Our Revolution) or Brenda Jones. Bill Wild also says he supports Medicare-for-All, but I don’t feel his platform is as strong as Tlaib or Jones. For the regular election to fill the seat from January 2019 to January 2021, the same three candidates are running (Tlaib, Jones and Wild), but there is also a Green Party candidate, Etta Wilcoxon (I couldn’t find a website for her), and a Working Class Party candidate, Sam Johnson.

MI-14: The incumbent Brenda Lawrence is quite progressive and an original co-sponsor of Medicare-for-All (HR 676). There are no other progressives in this race.


Also, here are Ballotpedia links for other State-level races. I haven’t had time to research these candidates, so you’ll have to do your own research on them.

Municipal:

Other races endorsed by Our Revolution:

Kent County Commission, District 12: Katy Barone


Candidates nominated by Convention:

In Michigan, political parties nominate candidates for some offices at their conventions instead of holding a primary. Candidates for lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, Supreme Court, and the boards of Michigan State University, Wayne State University, the University of Michigan and the state Board of Education are nominated by political parties. The Democratic Party state convention and the Republican Party state convention will both be held from August 25 to August 26.

Note, these are some very important positions in the state. For instance, the Secretary of State controls voting in the state, the attorney general controls which corporations will be sued if they break laws, state boards of education control the standards for teaching, etc. So, it is important that progressives have a voice in this process. However, I think the delegates to these conventions have already been selected (if I’m wrong about that, someone in Michigan let me know). If so, your only option to sway the choice of the candidates is to find out which delegate is representing your part of the state and ask them to vote for progressive choices.


Finally, I may have missed some candidates, so if anyone else knows of a good progressive I’ve left off this list, let me know.

Missouri primary

Note that Missouri has open primaries where you do not need to be registered with any particular party to vote in their primary.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate or Ballotpedia for US House. Note that there is no Governor’s election in Missouri this year. Also, here is the link to the BKAS post on Missouri – Missouri, but note that it was written in mid-March of 2018 and candidates may have changed since then. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes all the up-to-date candidates that have declared.


Governor:

There is no Governor’s race in Missouri this year.

US Senator:

There are a lot of candidates running. The incumbent Claire McCaskill is a very conservative Democrat and has voted with Republicans on several key issues such as weakening Dodd-Frank and mortgage regulations on banking and voting to confirm Ajit Pai to the FCC and Mike Pompeo as the Secretary of State. She supports the Keystone Pipeline and opposes Medicare-for-All. She is facing a primary challenge by Berniecrat Angelica Earl. Other progressive Democratic choices include Travis Gonzalez (he has a super basic website, but seems to support many progressive policies) and Coffee Wright. There are also two Green Party candidates, Jerome Bauer and Jo Crain.

US Representatives:

MO-01: The incumbent William Lacy Clay actually is fairly progressive and was an original sponsor of Medicare-for-All. There are several good candidates challenging him. The strongest one is Cori Bush (Justice Democrat candidate, BrandNew Congress Candidate and endorsed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), who is significantly more progressive than Clay. Demarco Davidson is also quite progressive and supports Medicare-for-All.

MO-02: Both Robert Hazel and Mark Osmack support Medicare-for-All and other progressive positions. Bill Haas seems fairly progressive, but his website has minimal detail. John Messmer has a very strong anti-corruption platform, but only supports a public option to the ACA, not Medicare-for-All.

MO-03: Katy Geppert

MO-04: Suzanne ‘Renee’ Hoagenson

MO-05: The incumbent Emanuel Cleaver is one of the original sponsors of Medicare-for-All (HR 676), but is otherwise not that progressive. There is a Green Party candidate, Maurice Copeland, though there is not a lot of information about him available online.

MO-06: Gary “Winston” Apple

MO-07: Jamie Schoolcraft (Justice Democrat candidate) or John Farmer de la Torre. Vince Jennings also seems fairly progressive, though he only seems to have a Facebook page.

MO-08: Kathryn Ellis

Recommendations for progressive candidates in Washington (primary August 7th, but voting is ongoing now)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Washington primary

Note that Washington has top two primaries where all candidates of whichever party are listed on a common ballot and the top two vote getters in each race, regardless of party, advance to the general election. That means we need to get some progressives into the top two or else they will not make it into the general election.

Below are candidates from our BKAS series that have progressive values. In general, the list contains candidates who have Bernie-like positions – Medicare-for-All, increased minimum wage, getting money out of politics, free college tuition, etc. However, not every candidate may support every position Bernie has. If you don’t know the candidate, check out their linked webpage. If you are not comfortable voting for any of these candidates, you can find others running in these races listed on the Green Papers or Ballotpedia for US Senate, Ballotpedia for US House. Note, that there is no Governor’s race in Washington this year. Also, here is the link to the BKAS post on Washington – Washington, but note that it was written in late April of 2018 and candidates may have changed since then. Check the Green Papers or Ballotpedia links above for the most up-to-date list of candidates in your district. The list below includes all the up-to-date candidates that have declared.


Governor:

There is no Governor’s race in Washington this year.

US Senator:

There are a lot of candidates running. The incumbent Maria Cantwell is moderately progressive, but does not support Medicare-for-All. Candidates who are more progressive and support Medicare-for-All include Jennifer Gigi Ferguson and Clint Tannehill. Socialist candidate Steve Hoffman would probably support a Medicare-for-All type program, but his website is vague about healthcare.

US Representatives:

WA-01: The incumbent Suzan DelBene is quite conservative for a Democrat and does not support Medicare-for-All. The only real option is Adam Pilskog, who is something of a Libertarian and a bit on the fiscally conservative side. However, he says “The insurance companies are where the cost-savings live, and by targeting them for reform and instituting a fair, simplified single-payer system, every American will have the care they need.” That sounds like he may support a single-payer healthcare plan. Pilskog also supports criminal justice reform, decriminalizing drugs, abolishing the death penalty, fighting climate change and campaign finance reform.

WA-02: Stonewall Bird (Green Party candidate) or Collin Carlson or possibly Gary Franco, though his website is vague and it is hard to know exactly where he stands on the issues.

WA-03: Dorothy Gasque (Justice Democrat and BrandNew Congress Candidate and endorsed by Our Revolution) or David MccDevitt

WA-04: There is only one candidate (other than the incumbent Dan Newhouse). That candidate, Christine Brown, talks about Medicare-for-All, but in a slightly confusing manner. I think she may be open to it or maybe to a watered-down version of Medicare-for-All. But her position is an improvement on Dan Newhouse, who voted to repeal Obamacare, without any replacement plan in place.

WA-05: Lisa Brown is the only Democrat running and the other candidates seem very conservative. Brown does not say she supports Medicare-for-All, but indicates she supports “affordable and comprehensive universal health care”.

WA-06: Tyler Vega

WA-07: Pramila Jayapal (Justice Democrat Candidate)

WA-08: Jason Rittereiser says on his website that he’s the only candidate in the race supporting Medicare-for-All. But several other candidates suggest they are for universal, single-payer healthcare now or moving towards it in steps, including Kim Schrier, Tom Cramer, Shannon Hader and possibly Keith Arnold. Check out their webpages and see which one you want to support.

WA-09: Sarah Smith (Justice Democrat and BrandNew Congress Candidate)

WA-10: Tamborine Borrelli


Secretary of State:

This seat is not up for re-election until 2020.


Attorney General:

This seat is not up for re-election until 2020.
