Opportunities to Vote for the the Center and Against Extremists
There are a number of excellent opportunities to prune the political tree of extremists today, August 2, 2022.
On the Democratic Side
Representatives Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), both members of the so-called Squad are being challenged by more centrist Democrats in their primaries today. Please vote for the centrists. Representative Andy Levin (D-Mich.), a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus is being challenged by Representative Haley Stevens (D-Mich.), who belongs to the more centrist New Democrat Coalition in a new district created by redistricting. Please vote for the more centrist candidate, Haley Stevens.
On the Republican Side
Donald Trump has, helpfully, compiled a list of candidates to vote against. (A specific list of 25 candidates Trump endorses in today’s primaries is included in this link.) He calls it endorsements. Absent any other information simply voting against these candidates would help move American politics back to the center.
Please vote in the primaries. If we have no centrist candidates to vote for in the general election, we have only ourselves to blame.
