At the beginning of this month, Washington State Democrats held a meeting in Pasco. One important decision made there highlights an anti-democratic choice made by some power players in DC.
The Washington State Dems voted to to call out the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In March the DCCC announced a policy that stated they would blacklist any vendor who chooses to work to support any Democrat who challenges an incumbent Congressman who happens to have a D next to their name. This policy is obviously intended to slam a lid down on candidates who hope to fight for issues such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.
We applaud the work of Democrats, such as Marysville’s Jason Call, who wrote the resolution which directs Washington State Democrats to ignore the DCCC’s policy.
