ORLANDO, Fla. — Liberal firebrand Alan Grayson is back, returning to politics to run for his old seat in Congress against Democratic U.S. Rep. Darren Soto.Grayson had been considering several options for his potential return to Washington, but he told the Orlando Sentinel he chose the district in Osceola, Orange and Polk counties that he represented for four years, because “that’s where people want me.”“Our country is facing a crisis,” Grayson said. President Donald Trump “is trampling on our democracy. Voters deserve to have somebody fighting against that.”The decision kicks off what could be a heated District 9 battle for the Democratic nomination between Grayson, a progressive firebrand who garnered both controversy and a national profile in his six years in Congress, and Soto, the first Florida congressman of Puerto Rican descent, who has been an advocate for the community in the wake of Hurricane Maria and the influx of evacuees to … [Read more...] about Alan Grayson to run for Congress against Darren Soto in Democratic primary

New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon. TIMOTHY A. CLARY/AFP/Getty Images Dear Bernie Sanders and Cynthia Nixon supporters: Welcome to the revolution! True, it’s not the revolution you dreamed of at Oberlin. But it will empower people to participate in our democracy and finally deliver a government that reflects the views and needs of the mainstream.According to the New York Post, the Progressive Action Network is circulating a resolution that would force the New York State Democratic Committee to allow independents to vote in the Democratic primary for governor on September 13. Why? Because the wider the pool of voters, the better Nixon’s chances of besting New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and winning the nomination.
