Run for Something

Your DGB for today is to support Run For Something.

Did you know that the current 115th Congress is the oldest in our country’s history? And that over half of the Senators up for reelection in 2018 are over the age of 65? There is nothing inherently wrong with these statistics and we here at the DGB denounce ageism in any form. However, political inertia being what it is, we have to question whether it may be time for some fresh blood to circulate. This is what the organization Run For Something seeks to do. They are looking to build a bench of progressive politicians, from the ground up. From their web site, their strategy is to promote and assist a diverse array of candidates that will emphasize an agenda of reducing inequality.
