Democrats for Change endorses McCormick for Senator

Democrats for Change has endorsed Lisa McCormick, a candidate in the June primary election for the Democratic nomination for US Senate.

“Lisa McCormick, a mother and small business owner who understands the challenges facing working families in today’s economy, is the best choice for progressive Democrats who want to stop a Wall Street billionaire’s attempt to buy the nomination,” said Yvonne Wesley, the organization’s screening committee leader. “As the leading voice of New Jersey’s progressive activists, Democrats for Change is working to recruit a full slate in support of Lisa’s campaign.”

Wesley said McCormick will work to eliminate the corrupt influence of dirty money in politics with an affordable system of ‘fair & clean elections’ as well as by advancing state-funded child care, paid family leave, universal health insurance, free tuition at public colleges and universities.

“Lisa has also been a progressive activist, fighting for justice, advocating smart & honest policies, like breaking up big banks, stopping corporate tax dodgers, Medicare for all and expanding free public education,” said Wesley.

In addition to the nomination senator, the full membership of several Democratic county committees are at stake in the June primary election, along with all 12 of the state’s seats in Congress plus a host of municipal and county offices.

Democrats for Change will provide an alternative to the ‘regular political organization’ selections in every county, meaning most incumbents who are seeking re-election will face progressive challengers.
