Blue America Endorses Robin Wilt!
Not every member of Congress can be AOC or even earn an A for their voting records. In fact, ProgressivePunch only has 46 “A” ratings right now. 7 of them are for New York Democrats– but Rochester freshman Joseph Morelle isn’t one of them. Unfortunately, he’s not among the members with “B”… nor “C” nor even “D.” Morelle, in a solidly safe blue district (PVI is D+8)– Obama won both times with 59% and even Hillary beat Trump in the district 55.5% to 39.1%– still managed to work up a voting record that scored an “F,” one of only 7 New York Democrats with that disgraceful of a record.
The New York primary will see Morelle facing off against a real progressive– Brighton Town Councilwoman Robin Wilt, who Blue America is endorsing.
Take a look at her issues pages. She’s a straight down the line working-family-supporting Berniecrat: housing as a human right, Medicare-for-All, criminal justice reform, equitable education for all, Climate Justice and so on. I asked Robin to introduce herself.
