Our Revolution Congratulates Rich Updegrove

WASHINGTON -- Our Revolution congratulated Rich Updegrove on his victory in the primary election for Duluth City Council.

“Our Revolution congratulates Rich Updegrove for his performance in the primary election for Duluth City Council,” said Our Revolution Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Giving a voice back to everyday people starts by electing progressive leaders to local office. We believe Rich will be a City Council member who will protect Duluth’s natural resources, stand up for worker’s rights and fix growing income inequality. Our Revolution will continue to push our members to make calls, send text messages and volunteer for Rich as he heads into the November general election.”

Updegrove was also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution Duluth, which sent thousands of Get Out the Vote text messages in the days leading up to the primary election.  

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.
