  1. So you said that the democratic platform adopted at the state convention is the most progressive in the country? Then the same being true is that the 19th District is Moderate-Conservative leaning which is why your campaign has very little chance of winning. So my follow up question is will you support the winner of the Democratic primary?

  2. An actual Socialist in our race! Isn’t this exciting?! *sarcasm off* We spoiled our and they are ruining our country!
