They will also meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and hope to meet with Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., in their push for federal voting rights legislation. Texas state Rep. Ron Reynolds at a rally for voting rights at the Capitol in Austin on May 8. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, a narrower piece of legislation that would reinforce the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but it, too, lacks broad bipartisanship. Republican lawmakers control more of the 2021 redistricting process than Democrats, and voting rights advocates say they believe they could gerrymander a House majority in 2022. Advocates stress that challenging voting infringements and gerrymandered maps in the courts — a longtime fallback — isn't enough to protect voting rights.

Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley speaks to voters and media while campaigning at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. REUTERS/Mike Segar/File PhotoFor months, a trio of liberal Democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race has vied for the mantle of progressive standard-bearer in a crowded field. "New York is not a progressive city," said Christina Greer, a political science professor at Fordham University. "We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left." "She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

Terry McAuliffe overwhelmingly won the Democratic nomination to return to his old job Tuesday, setting up a general election in November with Republican Glenn Youngkin. Jennifer Carroll Foy. But his victory was also a blow to some Democratic activists' hopes of electing McClellan or Carroll Foy as the country's first Black female governor. Carroll Foy ultimately won an endorsement from one of the groups, the Higher Heights for America PAC. Any concerns that McAuliffe stood in the way of history — he launched his bid after Carroll Foy and McClellan had been running for months — did not register enough to derail his campaign.

Trump lost Virginia in 2020 by 10 percentage points, double his margin of defeat in 2016. hereThe other Democratic candidates are state Senator Jennifer McClellan, former state Representative Jennifer Carroll Foy, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and state Representative Lee Carter. Under Virginia law, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam, who has endorsed McAuliffe, cannot run for a second consecutive term.

Democratic lawmakers and Black Lives Matter activists — aghast at the killing of George Floyd — marched together last summer in the name of police reform. Some Black Lives Matter activists say the White House and lawmakers within Congress have continued to shut them out of these negotiations. But many activists fear that the bill lawmakers are considering is watered-down and not a true reflection of what activists want. Democratic Rep. Cori Bush, a former Black Lives Matter organizer, is serving her first term in Congress. Bush, who was once a Black Lives Matters organizer near Ferguson, Missouri, has had frequent conversations with activists, including those in the Movement for Black Lives, which is being financially sponsored by the Common Counsel Foundation.

Floyd's brother Philonise Floyd and other relatives of individuals who died from police violence have also been involved. The bill aims to end certain police techniques, including chokeholds and carotid holds, two forms of potentially deadly force. Such practices would be banned at the federal level, and funding for local and state police agencies would be conditioned on those agencies outlawing them. The vast majority of the roughly 18,000 police departments in the U.S. are controlled at the local level, experts note, which is where organizers are more focused. "You're going to impact the budget at the local level more so than you can at the federal level," she said.

Virginia Democrats are less than a month away from picking a nominee in this year’s race for governor, and two things are increasingly clear. And that means the prospect that Virginia could elect the country’s first Black female governor — and the first female governor in the state's history — are fading fast. “Terry McAuliffe has a bit of a savior complex,” said Yvette Simpson, the CEO of Democracy for America, a progressive political organization that has endorsed Carroll Foy. “He's got the white savior complex: ‘I'm the only one that can beat the Republicans.’”Democratic candidate for Governor of Virginia Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy gestures during a debate at Virginia Sate University in Petersburg, Va., on April 6, 2021.

"Many of us were disappointed when President Biden got the nomination," said newly elected Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., who defeated a 16-term incumbent in a primary last year. "Biden has been incredibly responsive to the progressive movement," Bowman said, recounting a recent meeting between progressive House members and White House chief of staff Ron Klain. They're pleasantly surprised with his personnel decisions, particularly the hiring of Klain and the shunning of moderate Democratic White House veterans like Larry Summers and Rahm Emanuel. And unlike in 2009, activist groups aren't packing it up now that their party controls the White House. Dunn said Biden's progressive critics would be less surprised if they "looked at the actual person and not the caricature."

Rep. Jamaal Bowman laid out a progressive response to Biden's first joint session of Congress. "I was pleased to hear President Biden propose expanding free public education to include pre-K and community college," he said. "We need to rebuild our nation with a new foundation, a foundation rooted in love, and care, and equality," he said. With Democrats controlling both the House and Senate, along with the White House, Bowman said that Democrats can aim much higher when it comes to economic fairness. The House passed the bill last month, but its passage in the Senate remains murky due to intense GOP opposition.

He added that he fully expected the administration to "butcher" its own infrastructure plan. "I think if you told me two years ago that the Biden administration would basically be orders of magnitude more ambitious than the Obama administration ... The infrastructure plan is a "massive package of transformation," Epting said, with plans to replace lead pipes and retrofit buses and trains to make them energy efficient. "I don't think he's governing like FDR either, but I think there's some middle ground in there. Some even protested his climate plan with a cow-poop delivery to the White House.

WASHINGTON — Unlike in previous years, a progressive group has decided to deliver a formal response to President Joe Biden's first address to a joint session of Congress next week. It's traditional for the opposition party to give a response when the president delivers a State of the Union or other address to Congress. But it's much less common for a member of the president's party to deliver a rebuttal. Biden's speech will look different from the usual address to a joint session of Congress because Covid-19 restrictions will keep the House chamber almost entirely empty. In their first years, addresses are simply speeches to a joint session of Congress.)

A coalition of 15 prominent political organizations, advocates and labor groups is taking its support of a sweeping federal voting rights bill to the airwaves with a million-dollar ad campaign set to debut Monday, the group said. The 30-second spots will air in New Hampshire, Georgia, Arizona and Washington, D.C."It's a matter of making sure that the public knows what the real deal is and making sure that the Senate knows that we're watching," said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. The legislation, which passed in the House last month, seeks to change campaign finance, voting and ethics laws. The bill would also expand access to the ballot box in many states by creating federal standards for voting access, including automatic voter registration, early voting, and modernized voting systems. The fight over voting rights has reached new heights: Hundreds of corporations and business leaders signed a joint letter last week opposing discriminatory voting legislation, and top private law firms began forming a coalition to send lawyers to fight restrictions that pass in court.

BRADDOCK, Pa. — Nineteen months before a high-stakes Pennsylvania Senate election, the former mayor of this economically ravaged small town is laying claim to frontrunner status in a race that is emerging as a new test of progressive muscle. Fetterman and Kenyatta defy the prototype of moderate Democrats who have typically won Senate nominations in the Keystone State for decades. Sometimes it’s a matter of emphasis: Both support legalizing marijuana, but unlike Kenyatta, Fetterman highlights the issue with a green weed leaf on his campaign t-shirts. Kenyatta has little name recognition outside Philadelphia, and may struggle to garner it quickly if the race gets crowded. Asked about it on Thursday, Fetterman insisted race played no role in his decisions at the time.
