You can click here to donate to Honda's campaign:I rarely endorse candidates in primaries, but Mike Honda is a progressive leader and we need him in Congress, representing the heart of Silicon Valley in California. That’s one big reason why Democracy for America is making Rep. Honda our first congressional endorsement of the 2014 election cycle.
At DFA, we support Democrats with backbone, who lead with vision and who fight for core Democratic values. We're working to elect not just any Democrat, but better Democrats. I’ve known Mike for years -- he’s one of the strongest progressives we have in Congress.
It’s more important now than ever. The Tea Party has launched the most radical right-wing assault on the middle class that I have ever seen. They're working to destroy healthcare reform, workers' rights, women's rights, and Social Security -- and so much more.
That’s why we need progressive leaders like Mike in Congress who have a record of standing up for our shared progressive values and fighting back against the right wing.
Can you chip in $5 today to help DFA elect progressive champions like Mike Honda and help us take back the House in 2014?
In the House, Mike has fought tirelessly to represent his constituents in the Bay Area and support progressive values, from fiercely supporting LGBT rights and women’s reproductive rights to introducing legislation to expand Social Security benefits and prevent debt ceiling showdowns that threaten America’s economy.
Now Mike is facing a corporate-backed challenger whose big money donors are intent on buying Mike’s congressional seat.
The fight to take back the House from the far right and elect a progressive majority starts now -- and it starts with re-electing Mike Honda.
Can you chip in $5 to help DFA take back the House -- and elect more progressive heroes like Mike Honda -- today?
Thank you for everything you do.
