  • Cynthia Nixon, Governor of New York

  • Alessandra Biaggi, State Senate, SD-34

“This year, Our Revolution local groups across the Empire State have supported progressive candidates up and down the ballot by knocking on doors, getting out the vote, and bringing the political revolution straight to their neighborhoods,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner

She added “Nearly all of these candidates are taking on political machines - both Democrat and Republican - to fight the corruption and backdoor deal-making that pervade Albany and Washington politics. The growing efforts to unseat the Independent Democratic Conference members who prevent progressive legislative change demonstrate that the people of New York will not stand for cronyism anymore - no matter who controls the legislature and governorship."

Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
