Our Revolution Endorses Ellis as Next CDP Chair
Yesterday, Kimberly Ellis’ campaign for Chair of the California Democratic Party (CDP) garnered a major endorsement from Our Revolution, further bolstering her credentials as the true progressive in the race. The endorsement underlines the unifying effect Ellis is having within the Party, which has struggled to come together after last year’s hotly contested presidential primary.
“Now more than ever, we have to be intentional about developing a hard line between corporate interests and our political process.” said Our Revolution Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Kimberly Ellis has dedicated her time and talent to empowering Californians and getting them involved and civically engaged. We’re honored to endorse her for California’s Democratic Party State Chair. As Chair, Ellis will ensure all voices are heard. Her platform focuses on campaign finance reform, transparency, and detangling California’s political ties to corporate money. A vocal critic of California politicians accepting money from corporate interests, Ellis offers to begin a new era of inclusion in California’s Democratic Party.”
Our Revolution is reclaiming democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution is transforming American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families. Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness. Our Revolution is built upon the success of Bernie Sanders’ historic presidential campaign, and continues to thrive with the support of an unprecedented level of grassroots organizers.
“It’s time this Party heals, puts an end to the machine politics of the past and moves forward into the 21st century with a renewed commitment to organizing. Our Revolution’s strong endorsement of my campaign is emblematic of new activists’ belief that, with the right leadership, there is a place for all voices in our State Party,” said Ellis.
“Our team of everyday activists is deeply honored to be recognized for our messaging, plans, and progressive grassroots support. I’m incredibly proud that my track record of promoting women in politics and rejecting corporate influence has captured the attention and support of Our Revolution, which is leading the fight to return political power back to the 99% of us.”
