Candidates for the House of Representatives

We need fresh minds in the U.S. House of Representatives, people who will represent you, not their personal interests except where those overlap yours, and not the interests of corporate sponsors.

The primaries are drawing to a close, but they are not over yet and we will have to wait for the counts. However, some results are in and they are shown where available. The following will become the list of Progressive candidates for the General Election.
