|The California primaries are over, and while unfortunately many of our best and most progressive candidates did not make it to the general (and none of our statewide candidates), many others did. It is incumbent upon us to help them win! This is the list of the candidates supported by the members of the California Super-Progressive Anti-Corporate Political Activists Facebook group, a coalition of Bernie delegates and super-volunteers, progressive members of the California Democratic Party and Green Party activists. Key races are in bold. Please volunteer in their campaigns!
We will be adding local candidates as we learn about them.
November 2018 Election
AD 3 Sonia Aery (D)
Note: At this point candidates we are adding candidates that commit to be corporate/special interest free and who have a progressive record without additional vetting to give voters a chance to learn about them. We are working to develop methods for further determining what qualifies as an #unbought candidate at the local level and a questionnaire to make sure they share our values
