The followingÂ announcement came in yesterday afternoon from Democracy For America.
DFA endorsements have always been driven by our members on the ground across the country — that’s what makes Democracy for America the country’s only people-powered PAC. But the CaliforniaÂ All-Star endorsement is different because it’s chosen entirely by DFA members in California.
All the votes have been cast and I’m honored to announce DFA’s CaliforniaÂ All-Stars — Esiquio Uballe and Melissa Fox.
Both these candidates prove they are running powerful grassroots people-powered campaigns and, this time, the vote was so close that we could not choose just one.
It’s not hard to see why DFA members in California are so fired up about these two candidates. Here’s what the Orange County Progressive has to say about Melissa Fox:
Melissa has a way of making every single person she meets feel important and part of her mission, which is the goal of all of us, to be heard in Sacramento. Melissa Fox reaches out to every constituency, small and large and makes it a point to learn about all the issues.
Here’s what Esiquio Uballe says about working to win with his grassroots campaign:
We are running a neighborhood campaign, with residents reaching out to their friends and neighbors. We are working with clubs and with other local candidates to join forces to fight the perceived Republican stranglehold in North Orange County.
Every campaign we run, every candidate we support is powered by you — our members on the ground. Join me today in support of the California All-Stars. Sign up to volunteer or contribute right now to help elect two progressive fighters.
Democracy for America is committed to electing progressives up and down the ballot — to school boards, city councils and state legislatures. These offices have a huge impact on local communities and help build a bench of progressive talent that will grow and sustain a long-term progressive movement.
Thank you for all that you do.
Jim Dean, Chair
Democracy for America
Congratulations to both Esiquio and Melissa.
