But, there is also a bigger start coming to town too: Bill Clinton!!!

They seemed to forget that two of the key players have Union Support and that the focus had to be on the kids. It was still interesting reading, though.

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.
