WASHINGTON--Our Revolution candidates claimed eight victories at every level of government in Tuesday’s primary elections in California, Iowa, and Montana. Over half of the victories were candidates of color, first-time candidates, and women.
“Our Revolution is proud of the work our supporters and local groups did across the country for all of our endorsed candidates,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “Once again candidates that many would have counted out because they did not look like typical candidates or didn’t have the support of wealthy donors won because they had the support of the people. This is how we build a political revolution--one race, one district, and one city at a time.”

“We know that not all of our endorsed candidates will win every election, but we recognize that by running they are doing the necessary work to advance the values we share--expanding health care to everyone, raising the minimum wage to $15, protecting our environment, and reducing income and wealth inequality,” Turner added.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates backed by people, not corporations, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families. With this election, we are one step closer to accomplishing that goal.
