WASHINGTON--Our Revolution candidates claimed five victories in Tuesday’s primary elections in Nevada, Virginia, and South Carolina. All of Our Revolution’s endorsed candidates support Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, increasing renewable energy, and reforming our criminal justice system. From Congress to County Council, they will fight to enact policies that will make these reforms a reality for working people.
“From Nevada to South Carolina and Virginia, Our Revolution candidates are running races backed by people, not corporate donors or special interests,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “As we head into the midterm elections we are proud to stand on the side of working people and will continue to endorse candidates who will do the people’s work once elected to office. It is notable that our victories included wins in South Carolina and Virginia. If we want to see real change in our country, it’s vital that we organize in every state, every city, and every zip code.”
