Baltimore -- Progressive Maryland (PM) today congratulated the five candidates it had endorsed for Congress who won their party's nomination in the Maryland 2012 Primary Elections.
"We will now mobilize our thousands of members and dozens of affiliates to support all our endorsed champions of working families to win in November," said Kate Planco Waybright, PM Interim Executive Director. "With over 20,000 individual members and supporters plus fifty organizational affiliates, PM advocates for the best interests of working families in Maryland."
"Our board of directors reviews the records and questionnaire responses of candidates who seek our endorsement," said Elbridge James, PM's President. "It takes a 2/3 vote of our Board to get PM's endorsement." Progressive Maryland will make another round of endorsements for the November 6 General Elections soon.
