GAYLE FORCE Candidates

It is crucial that California’s corporate-free progressive candidates and elected officials work together to build people power in our school districts, our city councils, in the statehouse, and in our federal government. I am proud to endorse these candidates!

*The California Progressive Alliance will not endorse candidates before our founding convention in 2019 – these are Gayle McLaughlin’s personal endorsements.

The Gayle Force endorsements of candidates for offices from school board to Congress include candidates from different parties and many backgrounds and one unifying theme: to stand against the pernicious influence of corporate greed in our elections. It’s not enough to say that we oppose Citizens United and the Koch brothers, we must be true to our convictions by running truly corporate-free campaigns!
