This is a huge victory for progressives in MA-09: Move on has announced that due to overwhelming support expressed by its members in the district, the national organization is endorsing progressive insurgent Mac D'Alessandro in his campaign to unseat conservadem Stephen Lynch. Yes, the same Lynch who was the only member of the MA House delegation to vote against HCR. The same Lynch who is a reliable vote for any pro-war legislation that comes down the pike. The same Lynch who consistently votes against a woman's right to choose. The same Lynch who was recently ranked among the ten least effective members of Congress.
Orange to Blue needs to take agood look at D'Alessandro. Like Ned Lamont and Bill Halter, and so many other good candidates in the past and present, he's fighting the good fight to bring more and better Democrats to Washington.
Move On statement below the fold.
Message from your host, Gillian M.: Come join us as MoveOn endorses Mac D'Alessandro for the 9th Congressional District seat to replace Stephen Lynch. In an overwhelming vote, 87% of MoveOn members in the 9th district voted to endorse Mac. He is a true progressive, whose stance on the war, jobs and health care make him the candidate who will best represent the 9th district. We need to show our support for Mac's grassroots campaign so that he can win the primary on September 14!
