After the presentation of IL-02 candidates Saturday, NDFA voted on its endorsements at its regular meeting Tuesday.
There was a wide discussion. At the end, we voted to endorse Robin Kelly overwhelmingly. An endorsement requires 75% of those members voting. The majority was so high that a motion was made to "adopt," a higher commitment which requires 90% That passed.
While there were several speeches, I'm reporting it, so I'll include a summarry of my speech:
The group specifically rejects single-issue. Sometimes, though, the choice between two candidates is on a single issue. Both Toi and Robin have progressive records. The differfence is on the gun issue, and there Robin is the clear choice.
