In American politics, what’s the difference between a liberal and a progressive?
Alison Hartson is running to Primary Senator Dianne Feinstein on a progressive platform focused on getting money out of politics. Share and support.
While there are many motivators for candidates – there’s usually just one that truly drives them.
For me, it’s making sure that the working class has one of their own seated at the table.
I’m running for the U.S. Senate because California deserves a true progressive who is unbeholden to corporate special interests and big money politics.
If we hope to flip the script on our politics, we have to go about it differently. That’s why our campaign is not taking a dime from corporations or their PACs.
The system as it currently stands leaves far too many of us out in the cold. We’re going to be campaigning with a new play, talking politics in a new way and organizing for a new day.
Take a look at our launch video.
We’re just getting started.
Last night a group of progressive activists including myself took over our Democratic Town Committee (DTC)
The DTC is the local Democratic Party structure that fields, vets, and nominates candidates. We will now chose the next board of ed, town council, planning and zoning commission, mayor, two state reps, one state senator, and delegates for constitutional officers (governor, SOTS, etc).
When the balance of power shifts, I hope there’s enough new progressive blood in congress willing to force through bills undoing all this damage. This is now regular order. Prepare for the other edge of this blade to slice their conservative noses off. After years of obstruction, stealing a Supreme Court seat, and complete disregard for transparency or hearings, there is no longer a need to listen to calls of compromise. When confronted with ideological purists willing to sacrifice everything on behalf of corporations and the 1%, we need ideological purists willing to strike back on behalf of the American people.
When Krasner is sworn in next year, he won’t only be one of the most progressive politicians in Philly. He’ll also be one of the most progressive DAs in the country. Maybe even the most progressive, in fact. Earlier this week, the Atlantic wrote that “Krasner wouldn’t be the first ‘reform-minded’ prosecutor to take office, a term used to describe the growing cohort of district and state’s attorneys vowing to overhaul cash bail, abolish the death penalty, and crack down on police corruption. But he would be the most progressive in this pool, a distinction that takes on extra weight at a time when the Justice Department is moving right.”
He beat Republican Beth Grossman by more than 40 percentage points.

“This doesn’t bring the party together. It deepens the divide at a time we need all hands on deck.”
“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.”
