Welcoming New Members, Progressive Caucus Vows to “Double Down” on Bold Agenda

Source: Common Dreams

“The Congressional Progressive Caucus welcomed around a dozen newly elected members to its ranks on Sunday after bold candidates across the country — from Summer Lee in Pennsylvania to Greg Casar in Texas — delivered midterm wins that helped the Democratic Party stave off the widely predicted GOP ‘red wave.’ Buoyed by strong youth turnout, a majority of the candidates that the CPC’s campaign arm endorsed for the November 8 contests emerged victorious last week, an outcome that will push the progressive bloc’s membership above 100 in the 118th Congress. … The latest membership boost comes after the CPC enacted structural changes in 2020 aimed at making the bloc more cohesive and capable of using its size as leverage in key legislative fights.” (11/14/22)
