New Jersey Teachers Union Backs Pro-Trump Candidate, Warning Democrats Not to Take Educators for Granted
“This past March, the NJEA declared it would try to unseat Sweeney, but there were no Democrats willing to primary him. The union could have chosen to give no endorsement and still run negative ads against Sweeney, but the NJEA instead decided to endorse his Republican challenger along with running attack ads.”
It’s a contentious move, but one that is unlikely to change the ultimate outcome of the election. Democrats are expected to control all three branches of government after November, a major turning point for the Garden State.

Registering to vote for a major party and voting in the primaries is how we eliminate bad incumbents like Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Are you registered to vote in the primaries?
Are you running for office?
The deadline to register to vote for 2018 midterms ( yes that’s right 2018 midterms) is now for many states. Make sure you’re registered and turn out to vote. When we show up progressives win big!
The entire point of infiltration is voting bad incumbents out of the parties and taking them over. We have a wave of progressive candidates running in the primaries that dwarfs the Tea party takeover. We need progressives registered to vote in the primaries to win elections.
We’re starting to see even money isn’t an issue when progressives vote in the primaries. If people don’t vote in the primaries bad incumbents will continue to win.
“Out West in New Mexico, Brian Colón, state Democratic Party chair, lost spectacularly in a run-off election for mayor of Albuquerque, despite out-raising his Our Revolution-backed opponent Tim Keller, with over $800,000 in his campaign coffer. The final run-off election will be on November 14.”
“General election voters might award the winner, but primary voters are the ones who set up the match, and that’s a decision that should be made by more than just 5 percent of the people.
So, in the end, if you think that your opinion and your vote doesn’t matter, think again! The people in office now are making decisions that will affect your life now and later! This is why it’s important to get involved and be heard now. Let your vote be counted.”
The party who ran on the slogan “change” refuses to do so itself
“Over the past eight years, Democrats have lost about 1,000 state legislative seats nationwide. At Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009, states as conservative as Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana had a majority-Democrat state legislature.”
“Look at the map in 2009, then look at the map today and look where the status quo has gotten us.”
“We Are Not the People We Have Been Waiting For”: Prominent Progressive Resigns from State Central Committee
The truth about the Democratic Party that no one wants to admit
“I have seen and dealt with sexism, racism, misogyny, accessibility denial, name calling, snickering, bullying, classism and inequality since I started but even more so as I climbed up the ladder to the leadership. One story is told to one person and another version is told to someone else.”

Three decades of tax breaks for the wealthy. You’d think Republicans would be throwing data around to back up their claims. Furthermore, you’d think it’d be a popular position.
